Sherwood dentist Jay Powell was all smiles Monday night.
Powell, who was competing on Wheel of Fortune, won a total of $123,646 in cash and prizes, which included a Disney cruise.

The final total was significantly enhanced when he solved the final puzzle – STAY AFLOAT – and host Pat Sajak revealed Powell, below, had hit the $100,000 prize on that final spin.
Winning was televised joy, as is usually the case. It was extremely odd to see Powell on TV as he also happens to be my dentist, fraternity brother and I have a cleaning this morning at his office where the Floss Will Be With Me, even though I don’t floss, because I’m a bad dental patient. Also his real first name is Jeff, which explains the name tag and why it doesn’t say Jay.
