Graham Murphy – Principal dentist
Local residents may know Graham already. Graham was raised on Marden estate, attending St Mary’s RC Primary School, Marden High, then going on to what was then Tynemouth College.
Graham enjoys, and is passionate about, all aspects of general practice family dentistry, with a particular interest in restorative, cosmetic and simple orthodontic treatment. With an over-riding emphasis and drive on quality, a ‘prevention not cure‘ philosophy, and keeping treatment as non-invasive as possible. He has over 11 years experience as a dentist, qualifying with Bachelor of Dental Surgery from Newcastle University in 2005 with a distinction in restorative dentistry and also receiving the John Hopkins prize for overall contribution to the dental school. Graham also holds a BSc first class honours degree in Applied Biology. Graham gained his post graduate MJDF qualification from the Royal College of Surgeons in 2010 and has also completed two postgraduate courses in restorative dentistry. He is also a registered practitioner for the Somnowell anti snoring appliance and takes great pleasure in seeing the resulting improvement to patients’ (and their sleep partners) quality of life / sleep. He will be bringing these and many new treatments on board at Broadway Dental Practice including facial aesthetics, so please ask if you would like to know more.
Graham also holds an Associate Clinical Lecturer position assisting on clinics and with delivering the undergraduate curriculum at Newcastle University Dental School and Hospital. He prides himself on being caring, friendly and ethical and aims to put all anxious patients at rest. He takes pride in all of his work using magnification and illumination for all procedures including dental health checks (check ups) something which ensures optimal and early diagnosis of any problems and therefore optimal quality of treatments. Above all, Graham would like you to feel relaxed, at ease and well cared for at all times.
