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

Linda is the first voice you usually hear with you call into our office! Linda joined our Team at Branchburg Dental in 2008 as an intern as she was completing her radiology studies at Raritan Valley Community College. Now, as the Patient Coordinator, she handles many aspects of your appointment needs and is quite helpful if a patient has a question or concern on about their appointments or insurance benefits. Although she now greets you as you arrive to our office, Linda previously was a clinical assistant and worked alongside of Dr Murali so her knowledge of your treatment is vast. When Linda joined our Team back in 2008, the “dental world” was all new to her but Linda had many years of experience in previous customer service positions. She prides herself in making sure she is prompt when returning calls, thorough when looking into your dental benefits and she loves to “catch up” with our family of patients upon your arrival at our office.
Outside the office, Linda and her husband Vic stay active with their two children, Stephanie and Michael. You might see them around town or walking their dog Max as they reside in Branchburg. Linda, along with her husband, enjoys spending time watching their children thrive in their activities.
