Diane Murray’s Retirement

Diane Murray, RDH

As many of our patients know, Diane Murray has been with Health Centered Dentistry (and previously Aesthetic Dental Arts at this location) for almost 23 years! She is an amazing hygienist, a great listener, full of heartfelt advice for her patients and her team members in their time of need, a shoulder to cry on, and a friend to laugh with. She always encourages every team member in their careers and other life goals. She is such a great resource of knowledge on so many different topics from supplements to American history.

Earlier this month, Diane was forced into an early retirement due to health concerns. We were very sad to see her leave earlier than we had hoped, but we’re SO very happy to see her on a good road to recovery and continuing to get better with each passing day!

She wanted her patients know she feels “honored to have been able to share in their goal of health, and I feel blessed in my life for all the wonderful friendships that I will cherish always. Thank you.”

We will miss her laugh during our morning meetings, her incredible insights on holistic dentistry, her attention to all the details, her willingness to learn new skills, her friendly “Hello!” to every patient, her engaging conversations coming from Op 1, her super cool Marlin, and her unique spin on the Happy Birthday Song. We love you, Diane, and thank you for every moment of goodness you’ve shared with us as a provider, a team member, and a friend. As we list each moment, we can see and feel how blessed our lives have been because of the wonderful person you are.


For patients that were scheduled with Diane, we will continue to reach out to you to reschedule with another hygienist. We can be reached at 907-276-4537 or [email protected] if you have questions regarding your appointment, or if you’d like to know who you might match best with from our current hygiene team.


As part of our farewell to Diane, we are collecting pictures and stories to put into a book for her. If you have any memories or letters of good wishes you’d like to share with her, please send them to [email protected] or you can mail them to the address below. We hope to have everything collected by the end of March in order to put the book together. Thank you for your help in wishing the best to Diane on her new adventure!
