Whether you see them at work, in the office or out supporting local events in their distinctive “Murray Orthodontic” shirts, you can tell the Murray Orthodontics Team likes working together.  

Our patients constantly share with us that our team chemistry is one of the distinctive strengths of Murray Orthodontics. We believe it impacts everything we do and we work with the end goal of being extended family, amongst ourselves and with our patients.

The Murray Team




In the Clinic

Our clinical team is committed to being on the forefront of the latest developments in orthodontics. 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.


Treatment Coordinators

Out in Front

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, or your Invisalign is complete, our hope is that you will feel at home and more like you're hanging out with family than just visiting the doctor.


John Murray, DDS

Dr. John Murray is a Board Certified Orthodontist who received both his dental degree and his orthodontic specialty certificate from Columbia University in New York City. Then, like so many of us, he chose to live and raise his family in Alaska because of his love of the outdoors. Dr. Murray has practiced Orthodontics in Anchorage, Alaska since 1996.

Dr. Murray’s father was also an orthodontist and he used to hang out in his dad’s practice when he was a boy. From a very early age he knew he wanted to follow in his dad’s footsteps; changing lives through the gift of a healthy, confident smile.

Dr. Murray lives in Anchorage with his wife, Vivienne and their two children, Katherine and Alex.


Warren Libby, DDS

Dr. Libby received his dental and orthodontic degrees from Loma Linda University, in Southern California, respectively. He returned to his home town of Anchorage enjoying being an integral member of the community. He is well aware of the importance of a healthy smile and the impact orthodontics has on young people’s lives.

Dr. Libby is a Board Eligible Orthodontist and participates at the local, state and national levels. He lives here in Anchorage with his wife Cynthia and their two boys Ellison and Ira.
