The joy of changing a person`s life by creating a beautiful, healthy smile is one of the intangible rewards of being a dentist that can`t be measured. Dentistry is unique in that dentists don’t just treat patients who are sick or in pain, they also have the privilege of entirely changing the way someone looks and feels about his or herself. Such an important and potentially life-altering influence should not be left to chance—or Google. You can trust Murray Dental Care to deliver superior patient care. 

Murray Dental Care is owned by a dentist, Dr. Chris Neibauer, who built his philosophy of finding personal health, happiness, and success through service to others after doing missionary work as a dentist in Cameroon, Africa. After his missionary experience Dr. Neibauer grew, and then sold, a very successful dental network on the East Coast.  His passion for dentistry and serving others prompted him to once again start not just a dental practice, but an organization with dental professionals and team members with the same passion for serving others.

“By elevating dental professionals to mastery and applying unconditional responsibility to all we do; we will demonstrate to patients, the community and team members, a dental corporation is the superior method of patient care delivery,” said Dr. Neibauer

Dr. Joshua M. Bateman, DDS, and Dr. Chandler Townsend, DDS, are the dentists you will meet at Murray Dental. Dr. Bateman loves to serve people—inside and outside of dentistry. After graduating from Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS), Dr. Bateman continued his education at Dawson Academy with Advanced Training in Occlusion. He has also received training on Parenteral Conscious Sedation through the Oregon Academy of General Dentistry. 

Dr. Townsend was homegrown in Utah in the East Millcreek and Holiday area. After completing a 2-year mission in Brazil, he attended the University of Utah where he met Katie, whom he wed in 2010. He attended Creighton University Dental School in Nebraska where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. During dental school, Dr. Townsend received awards for his knowledge and skill set in both endodontics and implantology.

At Murray Dental Care, patients are provided quality service at affordable prices for the entire family. They offer zero-dollar cleanings to insured patients and 45 dollar cleanings to uninsured patients, with an in-house discount plan for those who need other procedures, but come without insurance. 

Murray Dental Care is located at 793 East Winchester Street in Murray, and is open extended hours Monday – Friday from 7am-7pm and Saturday from 8am-2pm. Visit to request an appointment, or to learn more.
