Jordan Murphy, DMD
Dr. Murphy was born and raised in New Hampshire and because of this has a great love for all things New England.
During high school and college, her pediatric dentist hired her to work in the front desk of his office, and she soon realized her passion for dental medicine. She completed her Bachelors of Art (BA) degree in Health Sciences at Gettysburg College, and then her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at the University of Pennsylvania.
With a big heart and strong desire to work with children, she moved from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh to earn her certificate in pediatric dentistry. Dr. Murphy is currently at the Children’s Hospital of UPMC and has truly enjoyed being part of a comprehensive care team with a strong background in collaborating with other medical specialties, and working with medically complex and special needs patients at the Children’s Hospital. She is excited to bring the same level of care to her patients as she makes the move to the North Carolina to join Southern Smiles Pediatric Dentistry in July of 2017.
Dr. Murphy loves spending time with her three siblings and her fiance who is an Air Force dentist, as well as running, skiing, and watching her favorite ice hockey team, the Boston Bruins!
