Children’s Wellness

Children’s Wellness

There’s a lot of focus on health and wellness at the start of the year, and while we may be planning our own New Year’s resolutions to better ourselves, let’s not forget the importance of wellness in a child’s life. Wellness can take on the look of a nutrient-rich meal or time spent away from screens; it can look like more time spent with family or exploring a newly discovered talent or interest. While all of these goals are meaningful and important, an eye on health should also be top priority. Pediatric primary care and pediatric dentistry are necessary for forming a healthy foundation for a child’s life. Having the careful eye of a specialized healthcare professional allows for the early diagnoses and treatment of problems as well as access to preventative care to protect your child from avoidable illnesses and injuries. Keep your child marching on the path to wellness with a visit to a primary care pediatrician or pediatric dentist today.

Dental Health


For nearly 20 years, Dr. Jason Parker has been taking care of the dental needs for children of all ages with gentleness and compassion. Patients travel from within a 45-mile radius of his Metairie, Covington, and Slidell offices to see him and his incredible staff.

“The key is having an energetic, friendly, experienced staff that creates a relaxed, positive and fun experience for every child,” says Dr. Parker.

In 2008, Parker received the New Dentist Award from the Louisiana Dental Association. Throughout his career, he has extended care beyond his practice with a number of philanthropic endeavors. As chairman for the 2007 March of Dimes Gala, he raised $7,000 for neonatal research. Parker has also been involved in many levels of organized dentistry; he has served as chairman for Children’s Dental Health Month for the New Orleans Dental Association, helped to produce a documentary with the American Dental Association, and is a 2019 Honoree for the American Cancer Society Belles & Beaus Gala.
