Our Practice is Growing

Dr. Awad and family

At Murray Family Dental we believe everyone deserves personal, professional, compassionate care throughout their lifetime.  Our ever growing list of services continues with our Invisalign Itero digital scanner, soft tissue diode laser and more.

We wish Dr. Dickerson "Bon Voyage" as she embarks on a once in a lifetime opportunity for her family to move to England!  We thank her for her time with us and wish her all the best!

Dr. Dana Awad joined us in July!  Dr. Awad grew up in Egypt.  However, she considers herself a Hoosier having lived in Indiana since high school.  She went to Franklin Central High School and earned a Bachelors of Arts in Chemistry at IUPUI.  She then continued to pursue her childhood dreams of becoming a dentist by attending the IU School of Dentistry.

She prides herself in providing comprehensive dental care to Indianapolis families for over a decade.  Dr. Awad believes in treating patients with a comprehensive approach while addressing their personal needs.  No patient is the same and every little detail is taken into consideration.  She likes to spend a lot of time educating patients and has a special interest in prevention.  Her patients become her family and her gentle approach puts them at ease.  She is fluent in Arabic and knows basic Spanish.

Dr. Awad currently resides in Carmel with her husband and three boys.  When she is not in the office, she likes to spend time with her family and friends.  She also enjoys traveling, exploring new restaurants, spending time in nature, and meeting new people.

To meet the increasing needs of our community we have added two new team members as well!  Anahi Estrada is an expanded functions dental assistant who has most of her experience working with children, while Brittany Horton has more than a decade working as an expanded functions dental assistant in a general practice like ours.

All three ladies are extremely excited to be a part of Murray Family Dental and look forward to meeting you and your family.
