Meet Dr. Park

“Orthodontics is not just about teeth; it’s about people. As an orthodontist, I have the opportunity to change the physical nature of an individual’s smile, but have even a greater opportunity to be a small part of someone’s life. I also have the opportunity to speak truth and encouragement—to let them know they are wonderfully made.”

— Dr. Park

Dr. Eric Park started his orthodontic career as a patient undergoing braces treatment while growing up in Lithia Springs. He graduated from Lithia Springs High School and attended the University of Georgia. There he earned a degree in microbiology and graduated magna cum laude.

He completed his Doctorate of Medical Dentistry at the University of Alabama School of Dentistry and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon national dental honors society. Dr. Park continued his education by completing a three-year residency program in orthodontics, and earned a Master of Science from the University of Florida.

In addition to providing excellent care, Dr. Park strongly believes he should take an active leadership role within his profession. He has served as the past president to the University of Florida Orthodontic Alumni Association, the Orthogators. He also currently serves on the Georgia Association of Orthodontists’ executive committee and as the Southern Association of Orthodontists’ director for the state of Georgia. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, and American Association of Orthodontists as well.

Dr. Park has been blessed to have the opportunity to use his education to serve others. He has participated in Give Kids a Smile, a program designed to give access to dental care to those who would not regularly be able to obtain such services, and Georgia Mission of Mercy. He also had the chance to give dental screenings to athletes who participated in the Special Olympics, as well as make mouthguards for the competitors. Dr. Park has also been on a number of dental mission trips to Peru and Honduras.

In his spare time, Dr. Park can be found cheering on the Dawgs “Between the Hedges” when football season rolls around, as well as the Atlanta Braves. His favorite activity is hanging out with his family, especially when serving as taxi driver to his kids’ dance, baseball, and church activities. He and his wife Lorie are blessed to have five children.
