Meet Our Team
Dr. Devi Murali, DDS
Since graduating dental school from New York University (NYU) in 2000, Dr. Murali has continued to stay abreast of the latest technology. She has spent hundreds of hours participating in study clubs, attending seminars and taking several continuing education courses annually. She has excelled in her post graduate education focusing on cosmetic and general dentistry in order to be able to deliver you the perfect combination of the art and science of dentistry. Dr. Murali understands that dentistry is not a “one size fits all” and her approach treats the whole patient, focusing on communicating with her patients on their needs, wants and desires, while educating her patients on their overall health. This open communication ultimately leads to excellent patient care and happy, smiling patients. Her relationships with her family of patients is extremely rewarding to Dr. Murali. Your comfort is always her main concern! She has been fortunate enough to participate in many volunteer programs donating her skills as a Dentist in many rural and underserved areas.
Dr. Murali and her husband have two children, Riya and Jay. When away from the office, Dr. Murali enjoys her family time, often traveling into NYC to see a show or venturing to the beach. .

These studies have provided her with advanced clinical knowledge allowing her to provide the best dental care possible for her family of patients.
