Dr. Ciaran Murphy, DDS
Dr. Ciaran Murphy graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry in 2005 and headed to Fort Collins with his family to start his practice. He knew his childhood dentist well, and he was the one who inspired Dr. Murphy to go into dentistry. Just to make sure it was really the direction for him, Dr. Murphy worked as a dental assistant while he was in college. It turned out he loved the work and decided to open his own practice after graduation. The mountains drew Dr. Murphy to Colorado, but it was his love of sailing that inspired the name Harbor Dental. He lived near the ocean in Ireland as a child and grew up sailing. Now he feels fortunate to be in Colorado where he can take advantage of the mountains for skiing and hiking and the nearby lakes for sailing.

Patient Comments (14)
in Fort Collins,CO |
One day after the same day crown procedure and everything feels great. Very normal and comfortable and no need even for pain killer today. The process was painless and relatively quick, 1.5 hr to prepare teeth, 1 hr to prepare crown and .5 hr to install and instruct. Dr Murphy and team are very friendly and professional including the office staff. High scores for this process.

Dr. Murphy and his staff have been excellent to work with. No one likes to go to the dentist, I’m no exception. But I’ve been going to dentists for over 50 years and in my view Dr. Murphy’s office is by far the best.

My husband and I have only had our teeth cleaned so far and have not had work done yet by Dr. Murphy. The staff is tops. Very kind, helpful and good at what they do. Thank you Holly for your help and support as this is a rough time for me and you picked up on that. My husband has dementia and I am having some health issues right now which is making things doublely hard. Thank you again Holly and the two hygienists for your understanding and support.

Becoming a dental patient with Dr. Murphy's dental practice is one of the best decisions my husband and I have made!. I give both Dr. Murphy and his staff the highest recommendation for family and friends. From the moment we walk in to their office, through treatment and care - I would go no where else! Patients are treated with great respect, welcomed upon arrival with a genuine greeting and taken care of well. I am very confident in the care, diagnosis and treatment Dr. Murphy provides.

Dr. Murphy and his staff are the best. He has been my dentist now for about two years and I highly recommend them. My first appointment with him was an emergency appointment and he saw me right away. It's easy to schedule an appointment, he is on time and his staff are awesome.

I love this dental practice! Dr. Murphy is amazing and best of all he doesn't ask a lot of questions while doing work inside your mouth. His staff is always friendly and efficient. His office staff is well organized, personable and fun to chat with. I always appreciate the Treatment plan he prints out for me at the end of my visit. It keeps me on track of what I need to budget and plan for. I tell all my friends and family that they should use Dr. Murphy as well.
in Timnath, CO |
HORRIBLE experience. He cracked the root of my molar while doing a routine exam and refused to prescribe be the appropriate antibiotics. I was in excruciating pain for 5 days. I called the office multiple times begging them for answers on the pain in my jaw/neck/face... I finally ended up in the emergency room with Doctors who immediately determined I had a serious infection and put me on intense medication and monitored me until I was well again.
