He attended the University of New Mexico for his undergraduate studies in biology and chemistry and Creighton University where he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1982. He has been practicing family dentistry in the Denver area for the past 37 years.
He and his wife Jan, have four adult sons and two grandsons.
Dr. Murdoch thoroughly enjoys the Colorado Rocky Mountains and spends much of his spare time playing hockey, basketball, skiing, camping and running with Kai. He has recently taken up a new hobby of brewing beer and now grows his own hops!
Dr. Murdoch is dedicated to utilizing the newest advancements in dental and cosmetic dentistry and keeps up to date with the latest in technologies by attending classes throughout the year. He has the honor of being recognized as a 5280 Top Dentist from 2013-2019.
Dr. Murdoch is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), American College of Dentistry, Colorado Dental Association (CDA), where he serves on the Ethics committee, Metropolitan Denver Dental Society (MDDS), the prestigious Seattle Study Club, and the American Equilibration Society. He is also a board member for the Colorado Dental Association Foundation.
Dr. Murdoch is involved with many charities including Kids In Need Of Dentistry (KIND), Colorado Mission of Mercy (COMOM), and the Dental Lifeline Network, all of which provide dental care to those in need.
Jan - Dental Assistant
Jan has been Dr. Murdoch's dental assistant and "right hand" for over 19 years. She has an extraordinary ability to calm any patient's fears and is constantly going the extra mile for them. Jan has a genuine concern and compassion for all our patients, but her real passion is working with the elderly. She was a past recipient of the distinguished Alzheimer's Volunteer of the Year award and continues to be an advocate for those affected with Alzheimer's. Jan loves spending time with her family that includes four adult sons and a 13 year-old Siberian husky named Kai. In her spare time, she loves camping in Steamboat with family and friends, cooking, yoga, skiing, shopping farmer's markets and vintage antique shops.
Nicole - Dental Hygienist
Nici received her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene from the University of Minnesota and moved to Colorado in 2012 so she could live near her extended family. One of Nici’s favorite parts of dentistry is forming relationships and establishing trust with her patients. A small town girl from Iowa, she can’t help but care about the well-being of anyone she meets. Nici really wants to work with her patients to improve their health and their confidence, and to form a different perspective on what it means to “go to the dentist.”
In her spare time Nici loves camping, running, and DIY projects -- anything to get her outside! You will always hear her talking about her next trip and she hopes you will share your travel stories with her!
Judy Ann - Front Office Manager
Judy Ann manages the practice's day to day operations ensuring our office keeps running smoothly. Customer service has always been a part of Judy Ann's professional life. She came to us from the corporate world where she held a number of management positions, most with a primary emphasis on customer service. She joined our practice and has been with us for twelve years. In her spare time, she enjoys genealogy, gardening, reading, and spending time with her two puppy mill rescue Bishons, Heidi and Nikki.
