Dentist – Dennis Murphy

Dr. Dennis Murphy received his dental training at The Ohio State University and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1977.  After graduating dental school, he landed in Clifton and has never left.  Dr. Murphy believes in minimally invasive dental technique and encourages proper dental hygiene techniques to ensure longevity of your teeth and gums.  Dr. Murphy enjoys each and every patient.  His desire to get to know each one of his patients makes his job that much easier, thorough assessment and treatment for each individual patient; treating his patients they way he would like to be treated.  His ability to offer special attention to each patient is what keeps them coming back year after year for around 35 years.


Hygienists – Carrie and Jen

Both Carrie and Jen graduated from Raymond Walters College, School of Dental Hygiene.  In total, they have 16 years experience in promoting and educating patients on the advantages of excellent oral hygiene.

Carrie and Jen share the philosophy of Dr. Murphy in our minimally invasive approach, encouraging our patients to practice brushing and flossing daily.  This approach will allow our patients to maintain their teeth and gums as long as possible.  Education, coupled with routine hygiene visits, will ensure the preventative schedule necessary to promote good oral health.

Our initial exam includes oral cancer screening and perio charting.  Carrie and Jen also examine the tongue, gum and bones of the jaws.  This complete exam allows our practice to maintain oral integrity and make recommendations for further treatment if required.

Carrie and Jen look forward to each patient appointment.  Our office prides itself on personal attention and individualized treatment.
