Why does Dr. Catherine Murphy approach orthodontics with a holistic mindset?
THE FIRST BOOK
To help share the hope of healing one’s child, Dr. Catherine Murphy has written a picture book about the empowerment she gained from delving in and finding out the WHY for her son. Dr. Murphy proudly won the Mom's Choice Award for her literary endeavour.
After completing her university undergraduate education, she spent a life-changing summer in rural Kenya where there was no electricity or running water. During her stay, she noticed that most people had straight teeth. Why do you think that was? Short answer: the diet was not industrialized!
Following orthodontic residency, Dr. Murphy returned to Northwest IN and ran the orthodontic department of a pediatric dental practice. In addition to private practice, she returned to teaching as an adjunct faculty member at the Indiana University Northwest Hygiene program for many years.
Outside the office, Dr. Murphy resides in Schererville with her husband, Mat, and their son and daughter. She met her husband through a local running club and now, instead of marathons, they run after their little ones! She enjoys reading, being outdoors, and the symphony, and admits that her guilty pleasure is watching documentaries.
