Kim has been with Dr. Murphy since the start of his practice. She is our front desk coordinator who will greet you with a smile and a big “Hello”. Kim will do whatever she can to help with the ease and flexibility of scheduling appointments to try and fit your schedule. She is married with 4 wonderful kids, 2 amazing grand kids, and has a very spoiled dog named Jax. She is a very proud military mom whose two sons are currently serving in the Navy. When Kim isn’t at work, she enjoys spending time with her grand kids, taking her dog for long walks in the park, or just sitting and reading a good book. Her absolute favorite place to be is at the beach.


Ashley is one of our great orthodontic assistants here at the office. She went to Cleveland Institute of Dental-Medical Assistants in Mentor and she graduated top of her class. Ashley is knowledgeable in general dentistry but her specialty is orthodontics and she will go above and beyond to help make your smile beautiful. Ashley loves spending time with her family, especially her son Jackson. She also loves the outdoors, so you will most likely find her camping, hiking, or out on her family’s boat. Ashley is a kind hearted, caring person and she will go to great lengths to make her patients happy.


Sherry has worked with Dr. Murphy as an orthodontic assistant since 2000. She only works part-time, however we are all happy to see her when she does work, as she brings a lot of energy to the office. When not working Sherry can be found spending time with her wonderful family.


Danielle is our newest orthodontic assistant. She also happens to be a licensed dental hygienist with both Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Dental Hygiene. Danielle practiced dental hygiene full time for many years before she slowed down just enough to focus on raising her children. She currently splits her time between a general dental office and Dr. Murphy’s orthodontic office. We are very fortunate to have Danielle’s expertise here at Dr. Murphy’s office. She is highly motivated to provide dental education to maintain and improve the oral health of our orthodontic patients. When she is not working, Danielle can be found exercising at the gym, hanging out with her family and friends, or spoiling her pets. She keeps busy in her spare time volunteering at her children’s school and with other community groups.


Jen graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Toledo (which is right over the border from Michigan, that other state where Dr. Murphy grew up and earned his degree). Jen’s many years of management experience helps to provide a great patient and family experience. You can see Jen around Mentor where she lives with her wonderful husband of over 21 years, along with their wonderful son and daughter. Jen enjoys being a mom and attending/volunteering for the kids’ school and sporting events: football, basketball, and cheer. Also, she enjoys spending time with family and friends (especially on beach vacations). Jen looks forward to assisting you and your family on your journey to “straighten your smile.”


Keely is one of the assistants at Dr. Murphy’s office. She graduated from Lake Erie Dental Assisting Academy. There is nothing more Keely loves doing than making people smile. It’s one of the many reasons she wanted a career as an orthodontic assistant. Outside of the office she loves spending time with her goofy family, her boyfriend Tyler, and is also an active dog lover. She is passionate about everything she does so there is no doubt that she will be passionate about your smile too!


Brooke is one of the many great assistants at Dr. Murphy’s office. She graduated from Kaplan College in San Antonio, Texas where she lived while her husband was stationed in the Air Force. Brooke became an orthodontic assistant because she has a passion for making people feel confident in their smiles. One of her favorite parts of being an orthodontic assistant is building relationships with the patients and seeing their beautiful smiles. When Brooke isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her 2 young boys and her husband.
