Jackie, Dental Assistant

Howdy, y'all!

My name is Jackie and I grew up in a small rural town deep in the heart of Texas.

During 2014 I relocated to Colorado in order to be closer to my family, and each year that I am here I find more and more things to appreciate about this beautiful state!

Some activities that I really enjoy are hiking in the mountains and taking my son out for trail rides in my Jeep. I also enjoy frequenting movie theaters, arcades and sports events.

I am extremely happy to be here at Iris Pediatric Dentistry and I look forward to meeting you all!

Hi, my name is Wanda!

I was born in Mexico City, but have been living in Colorado since I was 6 years old.

In my free time I enjoy doing new activities with my toddler. We go to museums, parks, indoor playgrounds, swimming, and many other fun events.

I am enthusiastic about dental health, educating patients and their parents about personal dental care, as well as reassuring patient fears.

About Dr. Murray

Leslie Murray, DMD, a board-certified pediatric dentist specialist, prides herself on having created a cheerful practice, full of teamwork, where children are given time to feel comfortable and confident in the dental chair. Iris Pediatric Dentistry, in Denver, Colorado, is a colorful, bright clinic with options to make treatment easier with movies and laughing gas in the office, or full general anesthesia provided by pediatric anesthesiologists at Children’s Hospital Colorado. It is the best of both worlds!

The dream for this office started long ago, growing up watching her mother practice as a dental hygienist. She saw the dental team working hard together to make the experience as brilliant as it could be. While out around town her mother always seemed to recognize a friendly face from cleaning their teeth, and families would talk about life updates like they were old friends.Having a profession that centered around true teamwork and sincere connection with families was her example of what dentistry should be.

Education has always been a central focus. 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 and then completed pediatric dentistry residency training at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Following graduation she joined the residency program as an Assistant Professor training residents in pediatric dentistry. In 2021 she set down roots to grow her own practice! She is excited to care for the children in her community by delivering cheerful, careful, and family-centered care to the neighborhoods of Central Park, Park Hill, Northfield and Commerce City.

She 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!
