Listening to Dr. K. Michael Murphy, it's clear that the appeal of his practice goes beyond high-tech care. Yes, he offers typical services, cosmetic dentistry and prosthodontic work, such as computer-guided implant surgery. A machine makes crowns while you wait, and you can even pick the color. But Murphy also expresses compassion for his patients -- and passion for his craft. "I wanted to be a doctor because I am a caregiver by nature and I love science," Murphy said. "It is an honor to finally help someone who has a particular problem and has been to many doctors. I cannot imagine retiring. I love it enough to die with my equipment in my hands."
