Vincent J. Murray, DDS
Dr. Murray graduated from Georgetown University School of Dentistry, Washington, D.C. in 1987. Upon graduation, he entered a large general dentistry practice with offices in Burke and Centreville Virginia. After four years, he pursued his dream to open his own practice in Warrenton, Virginia where his wife had grown up and where the Murrays felt they could happily raise their children. Dr Murray, with 31 years of experience, has completed extensive postgraduate training at the renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies and the Pankey Institute where he studied aesthetic dentistry techniques, neuromuscular dentistry, and laser dentistry. He is also certified in Oral Conscious Sedation through DOCS. He is a member of the ADA, AGD, NVDS, VDA, and the Washington LVI Study Club. He spends his time away from the office with his wife and children developing a family farm and raising livestock.
Dr. Murray has always wanted to be a dentist for as long as he can remember. He loves the variety that general dentistry provides. He enjoys living in the area that he works and treating multiple generations of the same families.
Jamie L. Childress, DDS
Prior to dental school, Dr. Childress spent a great deal of time working as a dental assistant for Dr. Murray and had always planned to rejoin his practice as a fellow dentist. Like Dr. Murray, she is constantly pursuing continuing education to expand her dental knowledge and skillset. Outside of work, Dr. Childress is very involved with her children, her church, and her community!
“Dentistry is the perfect outlet for my perfectionist personality! Success is in the details! It is a combination of art, science, and engineering that keeps my mind and hands happily busy. Dentistry allows me to interact and engage with the people of my community, to watch their families grow and to establish lasting relationships. It provides the opportunity for me to have a career and pursue my dreams of being a wife and mother.”
Sarah Garris, DDS has joined the Warrenton Dentistry Team!
Dr. Garris grew up in Gainesville, Virginia. Her husband, Dr. Chase Garris, is the brother of Dr. Jamie Childress and a Warrenton native. Dr. Garris graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in 2017.

In her free time, Dr. Garris enjoys salmon fishing, hiking, decorating, playing with her two Labrador Retrievers (Jackson and Scout), and antique hunting. Dr. Garris and her husband are beyond excited to return to Virginia and make the Warrenton area their home again!
