Patient Testimonials

    My kids and I love Dr "Painless" Parker and his staff. He's kid-friendly, talks to them like they are friends, and makes everyone feel comfortable. The office is always clean and appointments are on- time (no long wait times). We've been with Vernon Hills Dental Center for over four years after a not-so-great experience with a pediatric dentist. We are so happy with VHDC.
