patient review

  "Dr. Durden and his staff are genuine, highly skilled and professional. Without a doubt, they are unpretentious, honest and forthright early in the treatment plan. I knew exactly what to expect in time, energy, degree of difficulty and expected outcome for success." — Veta N.

  "Dr. Durden and his entire staff are the absolute best of all the dental practices where I have been a patient over a 65 year span. They are all friendly, competent, professional and very 'connected' to their patients. I moved out of their area 8 years ago, but continue to drive an hour each way because I know I will most likely not find another dental practice that can compare to Winterville Family Dentistry." — Nancy
