Dr. Martha M. Murphy

Dr_Murphy_New.jpgDr. Murphy offers patients the wisdom, experience and continuing education that she's gained from over 30 years as a practicing general dentist. You'll also find that she has a cheerful personality and a positive attitude. And you'll discover that Dr. Murphy pays great attention to detail. She'll never hurry your care and always treats you with the respect that you deserve.

Dr. Murphy is a life-long resident of Montgomery County, having grown up in Bethesda and Rockville.

"The two people who most influenced my decision to become a dentist were my parents. I was raised and educated with an emphasis on the importance of service to others. My parents, who were in the sciences, fostered my interest in science. I also enjoy working with people and have always been interested in the healthcare professions as far back as I can remember.

Looking back, I don’t believe I could have made a better career choice. It gives me great satisfaction when a patient tells me how their new smile has changed their life and self-confidence for the better."
