Anne Murray, DDS
Dr. Murray graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska after receiving her bachelor’s degree from UC Davis. She is committed to furthering her dental education and received her Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) in New York in 2001. She attained this award by completing 500 hours of continuing education and passing an arduous written examination. In addition, Dr. Murray is a spokesperson for the AGD and has many quotes in media outlets such as KFRC radio station, Redbook magazine, Parenting, Reader’s Digest and US News. Most recently she was interviewed at Bay Area Dental Success about advances in her practice using her exciting new laser that can do fillings with no anesthesia!
Dr. Murray has been actively involved in many committees with AGD including the Internet Council, Long Range Planning Council, as well as the Communications Council. She is also a member of the American Dental Association and the Santa Clara Dental Society. Dr. Murray recently finished a six year term on the Board of Directors for the Santa Clara Dental Society.
Technology has always been a passion of Dr. Murray’s. Making her patients appointments as enjoyable and easy as possible is something for which she strives; always keeping up with the latest advances and improvements in dentistry. Ask us about those recently discovered with her new Solea CO2 laser!
Dr. Murray spent many of her early years working in a pediatric dental office and loves to see kids. She has worked in this office for over 25 years. She took over ownership of the practice in 2002, right around the time her second daughter was born (it was a busy year!). In their “spare” time, she and her husband enjoy assisting with their younger daughters’ activities in high school and hearing about her older daughter’s engineering projects at college.
Come visit our Cupertino dental practice and see how easy and comfortable it is to be treated by a quality dental office! We look forward to meeting you soon.
Meet Our Team
Alison Lee – Scheduling Coordinator
I’ve been with Murray Dental Care since December 2017. I was born in Santa Rosa and raised in Los Altos. I have 5 plus years of front office experience both in country clubs and a therapeutic treatment environment. I graduated from William Jessup University with a certificate in Addiction Counseling.
In my free time, I love making art and being creative. Some of my passions and talents are quilting, glass blowing, painting, wood burning, making jewelry, sewing, knitting, crocheting, drawing, stained glass, tie dye, and coloring. I also love to volunteer at Hope’s Corner in Mountain View, a non-profit started by my parents where we provide showers and serve food to the hungry. My parents are a great source of inspiration to me as they are constantly doing wonderful things and giving their time and their hearts to the church, girl scouts, and the local and global community. They are constantly looking for ways to help those less fortunate get their basic needs met. Some of the programs they have participated in include Little Dresses For Africa, Sole Hope, Living Water, Amor Ministries and UMCOR and UMVIM out whether it be natural disaster relief or building houses, schools, and providing clean drinking water. I love spending time with family and friends. Most of all, I love working with and helping people and it brings me joy being part of such a wonderful team of women, who truly care about providing excellent patient care and making your visits a positive and enjoyable experience.
Sara Nguyen – Registered Dental Hygienist
I’ve been with Murray Dental Care for eleven years now. I was born and raised in Sunnyvale, and I attended Homestead High School before graduating from Foothill College in 2006 with an associate degree in biological sciences.
I love the awesome teamwork we have at our dental office. I love the work I do every day, striving to be in tune with patients’ concerns and needs, getting to know our patients, and providing great customer service.
Ever since I was young, I have always loved science especially biology, I wanted to follow in my mother’s footsteps of being a dental hygienist. Building relationships with our patients and educating them on how to best care for their health is an extremely rewarding aspect of this job.
I’m very family oriented, and am lucky to have grown up in a family of six who still reside in the Bay Area. I currently live with my husband and our two cats in Santa Clara. While I’m not at the office, I enjoy traveling, spending time with family and friends, watching sports, camping, and hanging out with my cats.
Ruthy Porter – Dental Assistant
Brynn Diehl – Business Assistant
I joined Murray Dental Care in 2002 starting as a sterilization technician before moving to the front office where I work as a business assistant. I graduated from San Jose State University in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in anthropology.
My favorite part of working at the office is interacting with the wonderful team we have here. I enjoy being diligent in my work to ensure that the business side of our practice runs smoothly so that the focus can remain on providing our patients with the best possible care.
My father is a retired dentist and my mother is a registered dental assistant, so working in a dental office is in my blood. When I’m not working, I enjoy exercising my brain by solving all sorts of puzzles. Whether it is LEGOS, models, or furniture, I enjoy putting things together. I also love spending time with my family, whether at home or out exploring.
At Murray Dental Care, we are committed to improving your oral health. Our dental team is friendly, skilled, and caring, and we look forward to caring for your family’s smiles. We invite you to contact our dental office in Cupertino, California for more information and to schedule your visit with our gentle dentist, Dr. Murray. We are eager to care for you!
