Dr. Murphy Sr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Murphy Sr "Dr. Murphy joined Dr. Michael LaFratta at Your Family Dentist on Grand Avenue in Waukesha over 16 years ago. When Dr. LaFratta retired, Dr. Murphy recognized the many technological and practice changes in dentistry,and he decided in 2014 to build an entirely new office and practice where all the full-time staff of Your Family Dentist are able to work with all the latest advanced techniques in dentistry. "I love working with people," Dr. Murphy says. "I love solving problems. I meet more interesting people from all walks of life in my practice than I could in any other profession. After working together for more than a decade, my staff and patients are wonderful to me. This career is very rewarding in every category you can think of." Outside of work Dr. Murphy can be found on either his boat or Harley enjoying all that Wisconsin has to offer with his wife, two sons, and a new grandson."
