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 20 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 her “spare” time, she enjoys helping in her daughters’ classrooms, coaching Lego Robotics, and her family’s new interest is in geo-caching! If you don’t know what that is, ask her…she’d love to tell you more.

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

Chenoa Santellano – Scheduling Coordinator

I’ve been with Murray Dental Care since August 2015. I was born and raised in San Jose. I graduated with a certificate in dental assisting from San Jose City College in 1996. I love working with people and being part of such a wonderful team who truly care about providing excellent patient care.

I am a devoted mother of two wonderful sons. I’m a huge Oakland Raiders and San Jose Sharks fan and love going to their games. I love to dance and enjoy going to the beach. Most of all, I love spending time with family and friends .

Sara Nguyen – Registered Dental Hygienist

am3I’ve been with Murray Dental Care for eight 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 and biology, and 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 boyfriend of 9 years 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.

I also enjoy working with my wonderful coworkers.  I try to be continuously growing in my profession in order to ensure a greater delivery of service.

I am a proud mother of five children, two of which are currently continuing their upper education.  In my free time I enjoy cooking and dancing. I also enjoy languages; I speak three, and I am currently learning Spanish as well.

Brynn Diehl – Business Assistant

am2I 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 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!
