Meet the Doctors
Since 1955 when Dr. Zach Hull first converted his home into an office, our practice has provided dental care to the residents of Myers Park, Eastover, Uptown and surrounding areas. Dr. Hull practiced in this same building 27 years until his retirement in 1982 when Dr. Perry Sowell took over the practice. In 2003, Dr. Moczek joined the practice, working here until his retirement in 2015. He was succeeded by Dr. Banks Allen. Dr. Allen joins Dr. Sowell in continuing to provide outstanding care to all our patients. Here at Myers Park Dental Partners, we've had the privilege of treating multiple generations of the same family.
We believe continuity of providers is an important factor in quality dental care, enabling us to put our patients' needs first and to fully understand the history of their dental treatments
. We have had the same loyal staff for over 10 years. We want patients to be comfortable and feel like valued members of our dental family.
