I've had 2 emergencies that they took care of promptly. I just wish they would do something with the paying arraignments. Dr. Murph Is cool, we banter back and forth in good fun. The blonde haired assitant is a hottie and, you can't forget Gennie at the front desk who is very nice and helpful. Hell they had closed already for my 2nd emergency and came back to the office to help me out. I call that above and beyond the call of duty. Will be going back this Friday and looking forward to it.

Excellent Dentist. The office is new and modern with some high tech stuff. I chipped my tooth this morning and called. They said come on in and I did. The lady helped me with all the paperwork so it was fast and easy. I had an exam, x-rays and the tooth was fixed in about 30 minutes. Very fast and it looks like it was never broken. You can't even see the filling. Dr. Murphy told me about some other cavities that I didn't know I had and showed me this large x-ray of my entire head and explained to me how the wisdom teeth were in sideways. I thought I would have to be put to sleep to have them out, but Dr. Murphy said no and that he would do them in the office anytime. I called my mom and she told me to do one today, i did, and it was not bad at all. I am going back before college starts in a few weeks to get the fillings finished. Great place, Great people. If I can do it, you can do it. Terry Cox

I had recently took my vacation on the Grand Strand, while I was surfing I smacked the board, and broke my front tooth. The pain was pure hell! I thought I would need to ho home and have a local doctor fixed my tooth. Another sufer dude friend told me of Dr. Murph in Conway, just a little ways from here. I called and on a Sunday no less, he and a nice staff lady met me at their office! I could not belive this! on sunday! Anyway, the staff lady told me I'd be alright, then she went over the cost, right up front! Then the doctor went ove my options. Then Dr. Murph numbeb my tooth,evaluated my tooth and repaired it back, it didn't take 15min at most! The price was cheep, and they didn't add on anything extra like most dentists. The service was really fast, man I was back at the beach, never had any problems with it again!Man this doctor is awsom!!!!!! Myrle Beach rocks, Dr. Murph rocks!! Rick, Jim, John, Bobby.
Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
