About us Our Experience Makes Your Experience Better

A lot of things combine to create a healthy bite and a beautiful smile and teamwork is one of the most important ingredients. That’s why the team at Murray Orthodontics is so special. Whether you see them at work in the office, or out supporting local events in their distinctive “Murray Orthodontic” shirts you can tell the Team likes working together and our patients tell us it is one of the distinctive strengths about Murray Orthodontics. We believe it impacts everything we do and everyone we do it for.


Our clinical team is committed to staying up to date on the latest treatment and advancements available. They regularly take continuing education courses and are almost as geeked out about treatment as Dr. Murray. But it’s the way they treat our patients and not just our patients’ teeth that really sets them apart.

Our front office team is all about making your time with us the best it can be. They are knowledgeable, know how to give you some space when you need it, and are always ready to lend an ear or a hand. From the moment you arrive to the day your braces come off, our hope is that you will feel at home and more like you're hanging out with family than just visiting the doctor.
