Aric Murphy DDS, MD


Dr. Aric Murphy and his family have lived in Fort Collins since 2012. They chose the area because of its small town feel, great schools, college sports and access to the Rocky Mountains. Dr. Murphy completed Medical School and Residency from Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota and an additional year of Fellowship Training in Pediatric Maxillofacial Surgery treating children under 12 years of age. He has been on a number of surgical mission trips, including Guatemala and Vietnam, correcting cleft lip and palate deformities. He loves taking his three teenagers skiing, kayaking, backpacking and seasonal trips to local orchards picking fresh apples and peaches.

You can find Jackie and her husband outdoors together every chance they get enjoying activities such as disc golf, hiking, hunting, fishing, and golfing.
