Iris Pediatric Dentistry - Denver

Dr. Leslie Murray

Pediatric Dentist

Leslie Murray, DMD, a board-certified pediatric dentist specialist, prides herself on having created a cheerful practice, where children are given time to feel comfortable and confident in the dental chair.

For Dr. Murray, the dream of Iris Pediatric Dentistry started long ago, while watching her mother practice as a dental hygienist. She saw fascinated by the way the whole dental team worked together to make the office function with ease and efficiency. While out around town, her mother always seemed to recognize friendly faces from cleaning their teeth and would talk to them about their lives like they were old friends. Having a profession centered around true teamwork and sincere connection with families was her example of what dentistry should be.

Dr. Murray completed her dental degree at Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Dental Medicine in South Jordan, Utah. She continued her education at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, NC before going on to complete pediatric dentistry residency training at Children’s Hospital Colorado.

Following graduation, Dr. Murray joined the residency program as an Assistant Professor, training residents in pediatric dentistry. In 2021 she put down roots in Denver to grow her own practice! She is excited to care for the children in her community by delivering cheerful, attentive, and family-centered care to the neighborhoods of Central Park, Park Hill, Northfield and Commerce City.

Dr. Murray continues to teach residents at Children’s Hospital Colorado one day per week. She thinks this is a great blend of hospital dentistry and private practice and helps her keep her training polished!

When not spending time at home snuggled up with her pup, Ella, or gardening with her husband, Levi, Dr. Leslie likes cooking, painting, cross-stitching, and reading.

    Absolutely amazing staff !! My daughter isn’t a fan of dentist or doctor visits and they did their best to make her feel welcomed and comfortable. They have toys and Dino’s to take back for comfort! The cutest ! They went out of their way to make sure she had the best visit ! I definitely recommend this dentist.

    I have brought 3 of my teens to Iris and am continually impressed with Dr. Murray. She takes time to make sure they understand exactly what is happening and why. She welcomes their questions. She also listens to me as the parent so that we are working together to make sure my kid’ needs are met. She is trauma-informed and compassionate.

    Iris is the perfect find for kids! The whole experience is catered to kids (translating to an easier overall experience for caregivers!). I think all my kids want to be in the dental field because of this amazing place and practice 🤣

    Amazing! Highly recommend. There are so many wonderful things to say about this office and entire staff. My child ENJOYS going to this dentist and leaves the office HAPPY, even after dental work. The staff is knowledgeable and kind. The office is exceptionally clean and comfortable. The staff thoroughly explain all procedures to the child and parent, and provide clear treatment plans. You can make appointments online and they have Spanish speaking staff ❤️

    My first visit was wonderful. The staff was very helpful seeing I had more than one kiddo. My kids didn’t mind waiting for their cleaning seeing the waiting room had just enough toys to entertain but not be overwhelming.. The office was VERY CLEAN & TAILORED TO TODDLERS. I was shocked by the quality of the exam rooms. 5 stars! Great quality healthcare! Doctor Leslie was great with my kids and made them super comfortable before proceeding with the check up. My kiddos came home excited to bush! Thank you for a wonderful first experience with pediatric dentistry. Excited to learn more about growing little teeth at our next visit!
