Cochran Dental: Helping You KEEP THAT PRETTY SMILE® Since 1958

The Kansas City Northland has been served by three generations of Dr. Cochran since 1958.  Upon graduating from the University of Missouri – Kansas City Dental School in 2014, Dr. Garret Cochran became the 3rd generation of dentist at Cochran Dental.   Thus, following in the footsteps of his father Dr. Douglas J. Cochran and grandfather Dr. Dan Cochran.  The office serves the Greater Kansas City Northland, including Gladstone, Parkville, Liberty, Riverside, and North Kansas City areas. 

Dr. Dan Cochran graduated from the University of Kansas City Dental School in 1955 and joined the United States Air Force, serving as an officer in the Dental Medical Unit at Hunter Air Field in Savannah, Georgia. It was during this period of service that Dr. Douglas J. Cochran was born.  In 1958, Dr. Dan moved his young family back to Kansas City and joined a practice located in North Kansas City above the Russell Stover’s Candy store, the perfect location for a dentist. As the population of Kansas City grew, Dr. Dan saw the need for dentists in the Northland and in 1971, opened the first Gladstone office. In 1984, Dr. Douglas Cochran graduated from the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry and joined his father in practice until Dr. Dan retired in 1994.  In 2014 the office relocated to 7101 North Oak, where the third generation Dr. Garret Cochran joined the practice.  Dr. Doug retired from patient care in 2022, now providing administrative support. Dr. Garret continues to provide the quality dental care that you have come to expect for generations. Dr. Cochran will be patient-focused and listen closely to you. We want to get to know you, not just your teeth.
