Meet Mario Pary, DMD
Growing up, Mario Pary wasn’t a big fan of going to the dentist – in fact, he planned to follow in his father’s footsteps as a physician. It wasn’t until a college volunteer program with a community dental clinic that he discovered his calling for dentistry.
After completing his undergraduate degree in biology at the University of California at Irvine (just 10 minutes from where he grew up), he was then accepted to the Temple School of Dentistry in Philadelphia. There, he met his wife, and the two relocated to Louisiana after he graduated from dental school.
His professional affiliations and memberships include the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and Fellowship Status with the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Mario Pary is a bilingual general dentist, providing comprehensive oral health services to English and Spanish speaking patients of all ages.
A Commitment to Continued Learning
Each year Dr. Mario Pary completes hundreds of hours in continuing education, in services like implants, aesthetics, full mouth reconstruction, smile makeovers, and endodontics. In fact, one of his orthodontic training courses consisted of over 140 hours of training time!
Out of the Office
When he isn’t spending time with his wife or their two beautiful daughters, Dr. Pary thoroughly enjoys restoring classic VB Beetles and playing the guitar – but please, don’t ask him to serenade you during your visit!
