The history of our practice...
Dr. Peter Orr, DDS started our dental practice in 1968 in northeast Columbia on Towne Drive. Dr. Gunilla Murphy became an associate of Dr. Orr when she graduated from the UMKC School of Dentistry in 1988, and she bought the practice from Dr. Orr two years later. Dr. Orr retired in 2000, and Dr. Sally Powell joined the practice in 2001 after she graduated from the UMKC School of Dentistry. She bought the practice from Dr. Murphy in 2006, and Dr. Murphy retired in 2016 from the practice. Our current staff includes two Registered Dental Hygienists, a patient care coordinator, a financial coordinator, and three dental assistants.
Sally C. Powell, DDS, LLC moved to the Village of Cherry Hill in February 2010. We currently have four treatment rooms, separate lab and sterilization areas, digital x-ray including a panoramic x-ray, a business office and consultation area. We also purchased all new dental chairs, dental lights, computers, and many other items to support our updated facility. We are thrilled with the changes and are working to provide even better care for our patients. The best part of our current location is that our patients are thrilled with the changes as well. We still have many patients who started coming to our practice in 1968 when the practice first opened.
