Dr. Parr graduated from Columbia School of Dental and Oral Surgery in 1975, and received post graduate education at the Mount Sinai Hospital General Practice Residency, gaining advanced training in all disciplines of Dentistry. In 1978, Dr. Parr opened the practice on Mary Street in Coconut Grove, free to develop a practice dedicated to delivering dentistry in an atmosphere as free from patient anxiety as possible. Dr. Parr returned to Mount Sinai as an attending for the Dental Interns in the Restorative Department in the Dental Practice Residency for over ten years. Dr. Parr has also been involved in the Dade County Dental Research Clinic since 1980 for continuing education and treatment of indigents. In 1986, the practice moved to its present location on Bird Avenue with the acquisition of our building and more space to provide treatment for our growing practice. Dr. Parr has also completed 5 levels of exceptional training at the prestigious Pankey Institute. Our practice has been a steady presence in Coconut Grove since 1978, dedicated to prevention, education, and care in an atmosphere that is non-threatening and pleasant.
I absolutely loved Dr. Parr’s office. I only lived in Miami for 2 short years and by far, this was my best dental experience in years – maybe ever. His staff is professional and very competent and I appreciated Dr. Parr’s conservative and not “sales-y” approach. He also cleaned my 4yo teeth. The entire team has an excellent bedside manner as well. I just wish that I had someone like this out in my new home in California.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Parr for many years, and he has always been a wonderful and highly competent dentist with a friendly knowledgeable staff. The office is beautiful, comfortable and clean and I always leave with the feeling that I was very well taken care of. Highly recommended!
I just had my very first appointment with Dr. Parr and it was excellent!
He did an extremely thorough oral examination and told me things that no other dentist took the time to do. I now have a better understanding of where I stand with my overall dental hygiene and how to better take care of the problem areas. I also had gone in for a second opinion thinking I had 4 cavities to be filled (according to my previous dentist). Good thing I went to Dr. Parr! With a little more TLC on my part I can take care of these areas. They weren’t as bad as my previous dentist had made them seem. His solution had been a quick resolution.
Also, the front desk staff is extremely helpful and friendly. My insurance was being tricky and they were able to help figure out my coverage. Thank you Dr. Parr and staff for being so friendly and helpful! I recommend this practice to anyone that is a bit anxious when it comes to the dentist as well as financially conscious!

Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?

Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia.

No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?

What is a recognized doctor?
Healthgrades Recognized Doctor designation identifies leading doctors who:

Have no malpractice judgments, adverse arbitration awards, or monetary settlements for the last five years in the states in which Healthgrades can collect malpractice data.

Healthgrades updates the Recognized Doctor list quarterly based on board certification data. Healthgrades also receives sanction and malpractice data throughout the year, depending on how frequently the state medical boards release updates.
