Welcome to our private, family-owned dental practice. At our establishment, we pride ourselves on being proven and time-tested, delivering intentional care that consistently exceeds expectations. Transparency and authenticity are core values we hold dear.
Dr. Brett Murphey, the visionary founder of our practice, opened WFD in 2007 with a clear mission: to transform the way people perceive dentistry. As a true student of customer service, he has masterfully applied his knowledge to the three dental practices he owns and operates. With a deep understanding of the importance of exceptional patient experiences, Dr. Murphey has created an environment where every individual feels comfortable and valued.
In addition to his commitment to providing exceptional dental care, Dr. Brett Murphey has demonstrated his passion for making a positive impact on underserved communities. He has dedicated his time and expertise to over 20 dental mission trips to Mexico and Guatemala ,offering much-needed dental care to underprivileged adults and children.
During one of these transformative experiences, Dr. Murphey had a profound realization: "together we can do more." It was this belief that fueled his drive to build multiple dental practices, each one an opportunity to extend his reach and make a difference in the lives of even more individuals.
Dr. Murphey's experiences in dental mission trips have deepened his understanding of the importance of accessible dental care and the transformative power it holds. By building multiple practices, he aims to bridge the gap and ensure that exceptional dental care is available to a broader community.
When you choose our practice, you become a part of this larger vision. Your support contributes to our ongoing mission of making a positive impact and providing quality dental care to those who need it most. Together, we can create brighter smiles and healthier lives for individuals from all walks of life.
