Sandy - Front Office Administrator
I am our Louisville office’s insurance specialist, so I process all insurance claims, update patient coverage, process accounts receivable and payable, prepare charts for the day, and verify benefits. I enjoy the variety of tasks and challenges that come on any given day, but the best part of my job is working with so many wonderful people—patients and staff alike. Our team exhibits an amazing quality of workmanship and philosophy of care that makes me feel good about representing this practice.
My husband Bill and I have four children, five grandchildren, and three dogs, and have called Colorado our home for 23 years. We love the beauty of Colorado and enjoy walks, hikes, looking for wildlife, and spending time with family. We have been active in our community through our church for 23 years and with four children, participated in a variety of school-related community activities.
Barbara - Front Office Administrator
I have worked in the dental field since 1975, completing several classes at the CU dental school in assisting procedures, as well as on the job training by some the best mentors in both the front office and assisting. In our office, I ensure our patients’ experiences are pleasant and smoothly transitioned from check in to check out.
I love spending time with my family and friends, especially outside enjoying all that Colorado has to offer.
Amber - Registered Dental Hygienist
I began my dental career as an assistant in a pediatric practice before graduating with my college degree in dental hygiene in 2008. I worked in a periodontal practice for almost eight years before switching to general dentistry at Murray Family Dentistry. I enjoy taking care of my patients and seeing improvements to their oral health over time. Our team provides excellent dental care that makes me proud to be a part of this practice.
My husband Chris and I have two small dogs named Winston and Tucker. We moved to Colorado in 2008 from Illinois to enjoy hiking, camping, and snowboarding.
Kathy - Registered Dental Hygienist
I earned my Associate’s degree in dental hygiene from Shawnee State University and joined Murray Family Dentistry in 2016. Working one on one with so many different patients makes each day interesting. Whether I’m helping an adult regain their oral health or cleaning a child’s teeth for the very first time, my goal for all my patients is to leave with a smile—a healthy one! I love being a part of this team—we work well together and everyone is always willing to help. Dr. Murray’s conservative approach on dentistry is important, as finding a dentist that has the same opinions as my own is crucial. Plus, his sense of humor never falls short!
I grew up in a small town in Ohio and bought my first home with my boyfriend in Lakewood. My parents are in Loveland and brother and his family in Longmont, making it easy to spend time with my niece as much as possible. I love all things outside, including camping, fishing, shooting targets, four wheeling, and skiing,
Laura - Registered Dental Hygienist
I am one of our Louisville hygienists. My absolute favorite part of working at Murray Family Dentistry is the close relationships I have with my patients. Over the last six years, I have formed lasting and meaningful relationships with many of my patients, who have now become friends outside of work. I also love the patient education aspect of my job. Seeing patients take control of their oral health and experiencing positive results is very rewarding.
Drs. Ryan and Megan Murray are not only excellent clinicians but also very ethical people, and it is a privilege to work with them. Dr. Ryan’s integrity and honesty in everything he does was one of the things that first drew me to his office. In the last six years, he has mentored me in many aspects of dentistry and I have grown incredibly as a clinician.
My husband Matthew and I have been married for six years. We have a 16-month-old daughter Alice and a little Boston terrier named Winnie. We love Colorado and are so thankful to have such a beautiful “backyard.” We love to ski, hike, mountain bike, canoe, and fish, and are passing down the love of the outdoors to our little girl. We are involved in our community through our church and volunteer work, and are blessed to call Colorado our home.
Janeen - Certified Dental Assistant
I joined the Murray Family Dentistry family in 2013 and have been in the dental field for more than 17 years. Having worked in dentistry for so long, I appreciate working for a patient, understanding and supportive doctor and being part of such a positive team. My main duties revolve around assisting Dr. Ryan during all procedures as well as managing the back half of the office. I enjoy all aspects of my job, but I really love interacting with patients and making sure they have a positive experience in a comfortable environment.
We have an incredible team here at MFD. While we take our jobs seriously and uphold a high standard of care, we also laugh and have a lot of fun. Working together to be sure the office runs smooth isn’t an easy task in a busy, fast paced office, but we all work together to keep everything running like clockwork
I am happily married to my husband Dave. We have three wonderful kids: Hunter who is going to school for social work, Madison who is attending UCCS for nursing, and Maxx who will be graduating high school next month and attending the Art Institute of Colorado this fall. We enjoy traveling, hiking, and biking, and I have a longtime passion of riding horses in the Hunter/Jumper discipline.
Karla - Certified Dental Assistant
I attended the Colorado School of Dental Assisting in 2006 and joined the MFD family in 2016. I work with Dr. Ryan during procedures, but can also be found in the lab fabricating appliances. I genuinely enjoy providing the highest quality of care for our fabulous patients. Dr. Murray is a great dentist who provides the very best dentistry and has a great sense of humor.
I grew up in Indiana. I am married with three grown children and am adjusting to the empty-nest life. I enjoy Pilates, home improvement projects, reading, and knitting. I also love to vacation on a beach!
