Dr. Rebecca Parr
Dr. Parr was raised in Great Bend, Kansas, where she was active in her community, athletics, and her church. In high school, she met her husband-to-be on the cross country team. Together, they attended Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri. Dr. Parr graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2007. She then attended University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry. While in dental school, Dr. Parr and her husband welcomed two beautiful daughters, Adelynn, age 8, and Amelia, age 4.
Dr. Parr graduated summa cum laude from UMKC in 2012. Following graduation, she had the opportunity to work with a school-based community health program, providing care for uninsured children. It was here that she realized her love for working with children and her calling to pursue a lifetime career in pediatric dentistry. In 2014, Dr. Parr and her family moved to Lexington to attend the two year pediatric dental residency program at the University of Kentucky. She loved her time in the Bluegrass State and the excellent training she received in pediatric dentistry, but she and her family are thrilled to be coming back to the Midwest!
In her spare time, Dr. Parr enjoys spending time with her husband and daughters. They love playing basketball, running, and dancing and are avid Kansas City Royals fans. Dr. Parr met Dr. Walker and Dr. Frazier prior to attending her pediatric residency program and has been looking forward to joining Children’s Dental Professionals ever since!
