About Our Practice
As the only dentist in Shreveport to speak both English and Spanish, Dr. Mario Pary and the bilingual team at Smile Dental Center provide a wealth of comprehensive oral health services to our patients in the Shreveport and East Texas communities. After purchasing our current location in 2012, Dr. Pary has taken steps to expand our facility and implement new technology to enhance the quality of care available to our patients.
If you’ve been thinking about having a smile makeover, getting a new set of veneers, or even wearing braces, you’ll love the SNAP virtual makeover program.When you’re here for your first visit, our staff will take a picture and upload it into the SNAP Cosmetic Simulation Software. The program then produces a “before-and-after” photo, showing your current smile on one side, and a preview of what your smile would look like with your desired cosmetic treatments on the other side. It’s a great tool when you want to envision what something might look like before we ever start the smile makeover process!

Mario Pary, DMD, FAGD
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.
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!
When he isn’t spending time with his wife or their two beautiful daughters, Dr. Pary thoroughly enjoys restoring classic VW Beetles and playing the guitar – but please, don’t ask him to serenade you during your visit!
Read what Dr. Pary's Patients say about the Practice
I’ve been visiting The Smile Dental Center over the last 6 months, and I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with Dr. Pary and his staff. Everyone is always professional and friendly and you’re always greeted with a smile! Dr. Pary is very friendly as well and always greets you with a handshake. He is very knowledgeable in his expertise and always makes you feel at ease. I would highly recommend this group for anyone requiring extensive and complicated procedures.
I think this may be the best dental office in Shreveport, or possibly the whole state of Louisiana. They are the nicest people you could ever be blessed enough to meet, and really care about how you feel during the whole process, including after you leave their office. Not many dentists, or really any that I have been to, ever show that level of kindness, but it seems to be standard procedure at this office. If you are looking for an experience that will help you see great results AND keep you feeling calm and safe (if you’re like me and typically afraid of the dentist) than this is the place for you.
The BEST place to go if you hate going to the dentist. Their number one concern is your comfort. Dr. Pary is most concerned that you are not in any pain. The staff is kind and non-judgmental. I hadn’t been to a dentist in several years. No one made me feel guilty about it. In fact, it was just the opposite. They were very understanding. And their goal is to keep you pain-free also.
I love the fact that Dr. Pary and his staff are so well coordinated in their work that you are never just sitting around waiting. How they do it is a mystery to me, but it is great. I also like the fact that Dr. Pary will do multiple teeth in one visit. AND without pain!!
