Meet Our Dentist
Dr. Creighton Gallagher was born and raised in Topeka. Growing up, he enjoyed athletics and played football, basketball, and baseball during high school. Dr. Gallagher attended Kansas State University for his undergraduate degree before earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
Dr. Gallagher opened Overland Park Family Dentistry to provide the families in his community with a local, family-owned practice that offers modern technology and personalized treatment options. He believes the only way to provide exceptional dentistry is to be well-trained and educated. He stays on top of the latest advancements in the dental field by attending numerous courses, studying implant dentistry at the Zimmer Institute, and participating in the Spear Education study club.
Dr. Gallagher met his wife Michelle at Kansas State University. They now have two boys, Sullivan and Everett. When he’s not at the office, Dr. Gallagher enjoys spending time with his family, going to the lake, and watching sports.
Meet Our Team
Gail started working in dentistry in 1974. She started her career as a dental assistant prior to transitioning to her current position so she commands knowledge of both the clinical and business aspects of our practice.
Outside Gail’s professional career, Gail has a son that works in dental sales, and has two beautiful grandchildren she loves to spoil. At home, her Blue Point Siamese named Callie has been her “fur baby” for 12 years. Gail helps care for her 90-year old mother on the weekends and fits in some painting and reading for relaxation.
Sara is part of our front office staff. She started her career as a dental assistant in Dallas, TX before moving here to Kansas City and joining Dr. Gallagher’s dental family.
Sara loves working in dentistry and is following in her grandmother’s footsteps in the dental field.
When Sara is not at work, she enjoys doing DIY projects around the house, going out with family and friends, and playing with her puppy; Bentley.
Millie is from Peru and graduated as a dentist in 2009 from Peruvian Andes University (UPLA). Millie then worked as a volunteer for many years with ‘Dentists Without Borders” in Peru and Chile. She is bilingual and loves every aspect of dentistry.
Making patients feel comfortable in the dental chair is a priority for Mille. She is wonderful at motivating our patients. Millie feels very blessed to be working with Dr. Gallagher in this beautiful office filled with the latest technology.
Outside of work, Millie is a busy mom with two children: Zoe (4 years old) and Santiago (2 years old). She enjoys swimming, cooking and spending time with her family. Millie practices Peruvian ethnic dances and shares her native culture with her friends and family.
Working at Overland Park Family Dental is very rewarding. The atmosphere is very welcoming and feels just like home. In our reception area we have flatscreen TVs, complimentary beverages, and games for the children. You won’t want to leave!
I enjoy working with Dr. Gallagher because he is the best at what he does. He makes the patients feel comfortable and secure.
When I am not assisting Dr. Gallagher, I enjoy camping, hiking, and fishing with my very close family and friends.
Our Hygienist, Becca, has been practicing for nine years. After attending K-State for a couple of years, she headed off to Dental hygiene school in Colby, Kansas. She made her way to Kansas City and has made it her home for the past 8 years.
When not at the office creating bright smiles, she is chasing around her rambunctious and loving son, Myles, who is three years old. Becca and Myles both have a big heart for animals and share their home with two dogs, two cats, two guinea pigs, and chickens.
Becca is passionate about making your experience at the dentist a pleasant one. She is excited and anxiously awaiting to help you achieve the healthy smile you are meant and deserved to have!
