Sheilagh Murray was born and raised in The San Francisco Bay Area, but for the past twenty-five years she and her family have made Phoenix home. Sheilagh has been involved in dentistry from a young age. Her first high school job was as a dental assistant. Her dental assisting career followed her through college at Brigham Young University. As her children left home she realized how much she missed dentistry, science and learning. In 2010, she went back to college and earned a degree in Applied Science and completed her licensure as a Registered Dental Hygienist. Sheilagh finds great fulfillment in the relationships she builds with her wonderful patients. Sheilagh and Scott enjoy traveling internationally, hiking, photography, studying art and European history. Their favorite activity is spending as much time as they can with their grown children, and nine beautiful grandchildren. Life is very busy and incredibly fulfilling!
Katie joined our team in 2012 and assists both Dr. Vu and the hygienists as their lead dental assistant. Katie is a quick study as she is a trained medical assistant and became a cream of the crop dental assistant overnight! She enjoys working at an office that feels just like family. By consistently striving to treat patients how she would like to be treated, Katie helps to make every visit here relaxing and comfortable. When she is not at the office, you can find Katie spending time with her husband Aaron, relaxing at home, camping, traveling, trying new foods, or spending time with her two nieces and 3 nephews and family.

She is thrilled to see all the familiar faces and to meet the new ones that have joined the practice since she left! She loves working with patients to make sure they feel comfortable at the office. She is here to help answer any questions or concerns any patient may have. To her, this office is family and she treats every patient as if they were a loved one.
