First Visit Success
“I needed a lot of restorative work done and was feeling very nervous about that, making the first appointment was a huge hurdle. I explained my insecurities and all of the staff at Winterville Dental made me feel comfortable and welcome. Dr. Durden was thoughtful, caring and took his time to get to know me. At the end of the visit, I felt like I was family. Who gets that at a dentist? I only wish that I had gone to see them sooner. I would recommend this dental practice to anyone who is afraid of that first visit. And my 3 yr old loves them too!”— Steve G.
