About Us

Dr Murphy is a graduate of Inglemoor High School and UW. A third generation dentist, he earned his DDS from the University of Washington School of Dentistry in 1987. He enjoys woodworking, fishing, dog walking and outdoor photography.


Tania is our amazing Dental Assistant. She is the life force that keeps the clinical arena together. Her easy chair side smile, exceptional technical skills and cheerful personality makes everyone comfortable. She shares her home with two sisters and her adorable little dog. We are blessed to have her on our team.


Tami is our dental hygienist. A University of Washington alum, she and her husband enjoy boating around Puget Sound, travel, tending her lovely garden, entertaining, and keeping up with two active college bound daughters.


Lael Is our dental hygienist. She brings over 20 years of excellence in dentistry. We don't know how she finds time for boating and travel with two awesome sons, her husband Tom and a new grandson!


Santiago is our dental hygienist. When he's not tending teeth, he spends time cycling, and with his wife, daughter and white German shepherd. While he had an exciting childhood in Alaska, we're extremely fortunate he settled in Seattle with us.


Elizabeth, or "Lizzie" (never "Liz") is our front office quarterback. When you call the office, she makes it happen. She is also our art curator! The gallery walls are constantly changing under her direction. When not handling your insurance woes or scheduling acrobatics, she is painting, running, doing yoga, tending her veggie garden or hanging with her wiener dog, Oliver. Favorite saying, "I need candy"!


Cliff is our cheerful early morning front office man. He came for a part time summer gig, and we wouldn't let him go! He holds the scheduling and filing together, and cheerfully helps wherever needed. His hobbies include baseball and more baseball, skiing and all outdoorsy sports.


Julie is the back office rover. When not shuffling mountains of insurance paperwork, she runs errands, fetches supplies and often snacks for Elizabeth.
