Scott C. Parmiter, D.D.S.

Dr Scott Parmiter was born and raised in British Columbia, Canada. His father was a logger and professional forester and his mother was a nurse. After he graduated high school he took one year off from school and worked to save money for college. He worked for British Columbia Railway (BCR), The Canadian Department of Transportation, Peace Wood Forest Products, and Jacobson Products Sawmill located in Williams Lake British Columbia. He thoroughly enjoyed working for all these company's because as a young man hard work is always welcome! The following year he enrolled in Canadian Union College to get a degree in biology with his eye set on becoming a physician. Pre-med was short lived however, after a visit to a hospital. The experience was strong enough to want him to change his major to dentistry. Most boys want to be a fireman, a policeman, etc or follow in the footsteps of their fathers. So he never grew up wanting to be a dentist it just happened! However, all the things came together and in the fall of 1989 was accepted into the dental program at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry (LLU). Scott was thrilled to be accepted it was a great honor! The next hurdle was the financing. It cost $25,000 a year just in tuition alone. Fortunately , Scott had worked very hard during the summer's working at the Jacobsen sawmill and the owner had noticed. Because of this relationship Harold Jacobsen loaned young Scott the money to go to LLU! What a godsend that was! If it had not been for Harold Jacobsen, Scott would not have been able to go to that school. Four years later he graduated with the title Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS).

Driving with all he owned in an old pick-up, two Rottweilers and $1800 to his name he followed the American dream and it led to Calhoun, Georgia. What a great decision that was! Calhoun has been a great place to have a large thriving dental practise which the community has supported! Along the way Dr Parmiter built a gym, Firehouse Gym with his business partner Hoyt Whittenburg , and he also built a Registered Hereford farm, Chinook Farms.

Dr Parmiter works very hard to do quality dental work and when he graduated in 1993 Loma Linda University School of Dentistry was recognised as being the best clinical school in the country!

Dr Parmiter enjoys a very physical lifestyle and when he is not in the office he balances the stress of private practise with extreme sports like moto-cross! He actually, broke his leg two years ago when jumping a 40' double when he came up short! He enjoys going to the gym and actually competed in bodybuilding at the State level. He also, enjoys mountain snowmobiling back in his native Canada. But, no matter what sport he does he enjoys coming home to Georgia!
