Welcome to Winterville Dental

At Winterville Dental, we create healthy beautiful smiles for all ages! We believe that dentistry should be an affordable and pain-free experience. After all, your smile is the first feature that people notice about you!

When Dr. Phillip Durden first opened Winterville Dental in 1989, his dream was to provide family friendly care for patients in the Winterville-Athens community. Today, Dr. Durden, Dr. Brandon Whitworth and the Winterville Dental Team have the great pleasure of helping patients with all their dental needs, from creating a happy first dental visit for a child to restoring health to a grandparent’s smile with dental implants. Friends and Smiles are always welcome at Winterville Dental!

  "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
