Dr. James Murphy

Dr. Murphy grew up in Freedom, WI, a small town located between Appleton and Green Bay, and attended Marquette University on the Western Golf Association’s Evan Scholarship. Dr. Murphy was accepted early into Marquette’s dental school, and upon graduation moved to Boston, Massachusetts to be near his wife’s family. Dr. Murphy was extremely successful in private practice on the east coast, but he missed the people of Wisconsin.

Dr. Murphy joined Dr. Michael LaFratta at Your Family Dentist on Grand Avenue in Waukesha 15 years ago. Recognizing the many technological and practice changes in dentistry, he decided in 2014 to build an entirely new office and practice where all the staff 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 very 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 new grandson!
