I broke one of my veneers off a front tooth. I panicked because I was leaving on vacation in 2 days and did not want to go with a toothless grin. My previous dentist had just retired and because I was new, I worried I might not get in right away. I was pleasantly surprised when the staff got me scheduled for an 8 AM appointment the very next day. They were able to scan my mouth, find a great color match, and put my new tooth on all that same morning. Their modern technology means I did not have to do goopy impressions or have temporary tooth. A big thank you to Dr. McMurray and his team!

I had a great experience. I haven’t been to the dentist in several years and was worried I would be “scolded” for waiting so long. The hygienist I worked with made me feel very comfortable, and explained everything very well. She did a great job with my cleaning. I have to go back to get more dental work done, and I’m not near as nervous as I was initially because the staff is so great!

The environment is very comfortable, the staff is awesome and Dr mcMurray does excellent work ! My favorite person of the entire staff is the hygienist Fernando! He can make me smile immediately if I walk in feeling down. His kindness and fellow feeling for his patients would make the most skittish feel at ease. And, as an officer and volunteer for the Middleton Food Pantry I thank Fernando and staff of Legacy Smiles for donating tooth paste and brushes, to help us care for people of our community of Middleton!

I had a painful situation, which I was unable to resolve myself. Dental floss had become wedged between a couple of teeth so tightly I could not remove it. They recognized the emergent nature of my problem , though it was an unusual situation She brought me right in and with skill and persistence , finally dislodged the floss. What’s more they did not charge a penny. I paid them with a granola bar. It was pleasantly and efficiently done. sincerely, Heidi Morris

Friendly, personable, caring, and knowledgeable staff. I have sensitive teeth and they take extra care to make my visits more comfortable. Also, was nicely suprised by having a charge removed from my bill because that portion of the work was not needed as originally planned in the treatment. Very honest and fair. Love all the extras they have at this place and use of current industry technologies.

From the moment I check in, to checking out, how is it possible to make a trip to the dentist such a positive experience? Peggy is always ready with my favorite DIY TV station to help distract me and somehow always remembers our last conversation. Dr. McMurray is so patient and carefully explains all the pros and cons of different options of my treatment goals. Ann is always waiting for me when I check out and is on top of my insurance. I am in the medical field, but I must say, this practice is more like family, yet has all of the latest technology. I highly recommend it to anyone and have!

Didn’t have a regular dentist in towne, and called Legacy for a dental emergency. They got me right in and were the kindest and nicest group of people I’ve met in a long while. I have an unreasonable fear of dentists due to family history and personal experience and they quickly disspelled any discomfort I had going in. Would highly recommend Legacy Smiles to anyone. Thank you Legacy Smiles!!!

I first came to see Dr. Mcmurray in 2001 when my first child had her first tooth, now all 5 kids have grown up with the same dentist and I have been able to be seen as well. After my self not seeing a dentist for 10 years and just recently finishing up chemo and radiation treatments , I was scared to return to the dentist. However, the staff and Dr. Mcmurray have worked their best to get my teeth where they can be, I am forever grateful that we are blessed to be part of such an amazing team of employees.

The visit was quick, and the staff was very nice. One of my favorite things is the great location which is just minutes away from work and home. I love that I can watch practically any TV channel I want while I am getting my teeth cleaned, it definitely makes for a more enjoyable experience. I will definitely be coming back to Legacy Smiles for years to come!

I have been seeing Dr. McMurray and his team for years!!! Every time I go in, I’m met with smiles, great customer service and a warm welcome. They don’t treat you as a patient, but rather invest their time getting to know YOU. You’re treated like family, and I’m always amazed how they can still remember things I told them six months ago!! They really do care a great deal about their patients. Every person in this office tries their absolute best to ensure you have a pleasant experience.

I have only had amazing experiences here! I have 3 young boys, 1 with autism and they have been able to treat them and help keep him calm and even wait while we manage through a fit. They whole staff is kind, funny and fun to be around! I would highly recommend them!

My experience was fantastic!!! The staff were so accommodating and friendly and Dr. McMurray was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful! He took the time to get to know me better (it was my first visit) and to help solve some issues I had been having. I will definitely recommend Legacy Smiles to everyone!

My experience with Legacy Smiles, especially Jack and Dr. McMurry was excellent. Jack did a wonderful job cleaning my teeth and was very detailed in explaining what she was doing and why. Dr McMurry spent time explaining the condition of my teeth. What I really liked, was that they set up a plan for dental work. The work I need is not urgent and needs to be done now. Rather they explained these items are a priority (but not urgent) these are things we are watching for down the road and will at some time need to be addressed. Then they give you cost estimates for the work so one can budget for the expense. I value this type of approach.

I have such a great experience with Legacy Smiles.The staff is so friendly. They really take the time to make sure my teeth are clean. I always feel amazing when I leave. I just keep smiling the rest of the day. They care about your treatment plan, and make sure you are comfortable with the costs. They are fast and are respectful of your time. The best in Boise.

Dr. McMurray and staff are fantastic. I had my first crown today, and was very nervous. They answered all my questions, were very accommodating, and offered support when I was having a difficult time. Having the crown completed in one visit was a great surprise, and time saver. Thank you for your wonderful work!

Just got done getting a filling and two crowns with Dr. McMuray and Katie. Turns out I did not need the second crown so just two fillings and one crown. No pain, professional and honest treatment! Another reviewer noted that your time is also respected. The best dental facility I have ever been to in my 50+ years. Highly, highly recommended!!! We are new to the Boise area and I can say that my experience with Legacy Smile was superb! The staff is friendly and professional and Dr. McMurray spent time discussing my oral condition and provided me with an overview of things I will need to consider in the future. Nothing was “imminent” as my wife and I have experienced with other dentists. I do appreciated that at Legacy Smiles makes the patient part of the decision making process. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much to the staff and to Dr. McMurray for helping us in a emergency and fixing my daughters tooth. You went above and beyond when her sister and her collided and my daughters tooth broke in half. Thank you patient, understanding and empathetic with her and our family. Even when we haven’t been to your office you made sure she had the proper care, thank you and thank you for letting her come back to be your patient.

I actually enjoy going to the Dentist! Dr. McMurray is kind and gentle and I trust his care and opinion regarding my oral health as well as that of my 5 year old sons. Getting my teeth cleaned is a guilty pleasure because it makes me feel more confident and always boosts my mood. Nora, Ann, and Shannon make me smile and I always leave the office happy and giddy from laughing! Overall, GREAT STAFF & Great service from Legacy Smiles. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist office!

I started coming to Legacy Smiles a few years ago, when it was still Aspen Dental, as it is located very close to my house. More important than the short commute is the quality of care and service. They are always very prompt, and I have rarely had to wait more than five minutes from the time of my arrival. Their hygienists are very knowledgeable, courteous, and thorough. They will talk you through any issues you may have, and what can be done in terms of preventative cleaning and maintenance on your teeth. The facility is also very clean and modern. I highly recommend them to anyone in Meridian or West Boise who is looking for a good dentist.

I love my dentist and the staff, they do an amazing job always. BUT if you have an appointment for just a cleaning prepair to be there for 2 hours. Personally it’s worth the wait, because they do do a great job everytime. The short haired blonde assistant, I can never remember her name but she always preps me and my mom. BUT she always seems genuinely interest in talking to me and making sure I’m comfortable. she’s a sweetheart

My son had a bad tooth ache at 8pm on Halloween and was very concerned about it. Legacy Smiles calmed him down, relieved his pain, and had him smiling and laughing within 15 minutes! The offices are so nice, so professional, and they have impeccable integrity. Outstanding experience tonight for our family! Our son came home and told the whole family how great it was!

Everyone at Legacy Smiles Family Dental is so friendly and helpful. The whole staff, but especially Dr. McMurray go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. He always explains everything so well…I’m never left feeling unsure of any procedure I’m about to have. The office is welcoming and very professional. I can’t say enough good things about my dentist! Thanks for doing such an awesome job! I love my smile!


Welcome to Legacy Smiles Family Dental, where your smile is our legacy. Our practice is a place where the entire family can visit to receive exceptional comprehensive dentistry. Our dentists - Dr. John McMurray and Dr. Brad Williams - have years of experience treating special needs children and patients with dental phobias. With their gentle manners and calming personalities, they can help even the most anxious individual feel comfortable and at home in our office. Dr. McMurray was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He served a full-time LDS mission in the Seattle, Washington, area and then returned home to continue with college where he met his wife, Connie, and they were married. He graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of Utah and then went on to graduate from the Medical College of Virginia / Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. Following graduation, they moved to the small town of Okanogan, Washington, where he practiced in a community clinic for five years, treating a very large underserved population. In 2001, he and his family relocated to Boise and eventually joined up with his old friend, Dr. Brad Williams (they go back to elementary school together). Dr. McMurray enjoys getting to know his patients and he truly values their trust and friendship. His practice is broad and includes all phases of dentistry ranging from kids, to adults, to those with special needs, from cosmetic dentistry and implants to root canals and braces. Dr. McMurray has been the Chief of Dentistry at St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center for many years where he treats a large number of pediatric and special needs patients. He is heavily involved with the Head Start programs of several counties and for the past several years has coordinated the Give Kids A Smile annual free dental program for the Southwest Idaho Dental Society. Dr. McMurray is a Mentor with the CEREC digital dentistry program and is excited about what the future holds for dentistry. Dr. McMurray is actively involved in his church and community and has worked with the youth and particularly the Boy Scout program for over twenty years. When not involved with his practice, Dr. McMurray enjoys anything outdoors and spending time with his wife and five children.
