Dr. Murray's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Murray "Dr. Murray is an AACD-accredited dentist. Dentists attempting to achieve AACD (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry) accreditation must undergo a stringent three-part process, consisting of a written examination, submission of clinical cases for evaluation and an oral examination. Dr. Murray is the only Dubuque dentist offering this elite accreditation, and one of only a few Iowa dentists. He has helped many patients achieve the beautiful smiles of their dreams using his advanced training and attention to every cosmetic detail. He was awarded Best of Show at an annual AACD meeting for a cosmetic resin veneer case he completed on a patient in his practice. Dr. Murray graduated from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry in 1977 and began his practice following a General Practice Dental Residency at the Iowa City Veterans Hospital. He then earned a Fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) in 1983, and the prestigious AGD Mastership in 1995. He attended The Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education and has been committed to attending quality continuing education courses for 40 years. Dr. Murray was invited to be an LVI clinical instructor for Dr. Ron Jackson's posterior restorative course and the esthetic anterior resin course. Dr. Murray also earned a postgraduate certificate in Aesthetic and Contemporary Restorative Dentistry from the University of Minnesota. He is past president of both the Dubuque District and Dubuque County Dental Societies, as well as the Iowa AGD. He has served on the AACD Nominating and Leadership Development Committee for several years, and is currently on his second term. Dr. Murray was also selected to be an AACD Accreditation Examiner and has served on this committee examining cases for member dentists working towards AACD accreditation. He has also served as a mentor for other dentists working towards AACD accreditation. He has volunteered with the Iowa Mission of Mercy, a large event that provides free dental care to those in need, and he has participated in Donated Dental Services by providing free dental care to local citizens in our community. Ted and Carol Murray enjoy the outdoors with daughters Kristen, Jenny, Alexia, son-in laws Tim, Jef, Ryan and grandchildren Brielle, John, Ted, Clara and their California granddaughters Shyla and Sierra. Dr. Murray also enjoys boating and fishing on the Mississippi, trapshooting, and woodworking. "
