I have been working for Dr. Chappell for four and a half years now. I am originally from Texas, but moved to Missouri when I was younger. I absolutely love what I do! One of the privileges that I have with working at the front desk is greeting the wonderful people that walk through our doors. I love helping others and providing great customer service for our patients. I have been happily married to my husband Caleb since 2015. We have a two year old daughter named Caroline Rose who is the biggest joy of our life. Caleb and his brother own a landscaping company called Venters Bros Lawn Pros here in town that they started when they were very young. I love anything that has to do with Caroline, cooking, family time, and coffee! If you want a fun and family-oriented dentist then this is the place for you!
My name is Kim Parrott and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist. I have been a hygienist for 13 years; however, my experience in dentistry began long before I became a hygienist. When I graduated from high school I attended the Kansas City College of Dental Careers and became a Certified Dental Assistant and eventually an Expanded Duties Dental Assistant. I worked in a General practice and an Orthodontic practice as an assistant. When my children were older I decided to return to school and become a Dental Hygienist. I graduated from SFCC in Sedalia MO and have been a member of the Missouri Dental Hygienist Association since I graduated. My career in dentistry spans 30 years and it continues to hold my interest and challenge me on a daily basis. I like dentistry because it is a profession that helps people stay healthy and feel good about themselves and it is an important part of everyone’s overall health. I love getting to know my patients and their families. In my career, I aspire to treat each person as an individual and give the best treatment I can while educating and informing them of their current oral health. I also enjoy traveling to conferences for continuing education to stay up to date on the latest in dentistry, and I love networking with other hygienists. I currently live in Knob Noster, MO with my husband, Drew and I have two grown children and two granddaughters that we are very proud of. We make great memories with them! I enjoy yoga, shopping, bunco and napping with my fur babies.
I have worked in the dental field since 2009 and became an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant in 2010. I was interested in furthering my dental knowledge and decided to go to hygiene school in 2013 and I am very glad I did! I truly enjoy hygiene; I love getting to know my patients and the pleasure of meeting such a wide variety of people and hearing their stories! My favorite part about my career is seeing patient compliance with homecare and knowing I played an important role in educating and helping change someone’s oral health for the better. I began my career as a hygienist for Dr. Chappell in January of 2017; I couldn’t ask for a better work environment and doctor- it’s a very fun and family-oriented office that is great for patients of all ages. I was born in Ukraine and have the ability to translate for Russian/Ukrainian patients which is quite helpful at times. My husband and I have been married since May of 2009 and have two children who are our biggest blessing: Jacob (6) and Ayla (2). Vlad is a supervisor at Duke Manufacturing where he’s worked for 7+ years and oversees the shipping/receiving department. In my spare time I love working out and spending plenty of quality time with family & especially my kiddos! Some of my other interests include: shopping in the city, hanging out with friends, decorating our home, and baking for others when I have the spare time.
