Patient Reviews

Everyone bent over backwards to help me get an appointment for my dental emergency, even though I was not a current patient of the practice. The caring approach of all the staff helped me feel incredibly comfortable and safe during such a frightening time of challenges in our world. I appreciate the whole group at Winterville Dental for continuing to provide excellent care, putting themselves at risk to help others. And my whole experience with dental surgery was very pleasant due to their wonderful efforts. Thank you all for your dedication and commitment.

Winterville Dental is a great place to go for all your dental needs. They take care of all ages and stages (I have gone to them since I was a child!). Not to mention, the staff is so friendly and the doctors are great! Also, the location is great and the inside is decorated so colorfully! Kids will love going to the dentist here! Thanks W.D.!

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.

Great for adults and children

Not only do I feel comfortable when I visit, but my 8 year old daughter loves going to the dentist here! They are very thorough, but also gentle and kind to little ones. They focus on the positive with my daughter, and she leaves feeling awesome about her teeth.

Katie T.


Yes, I am old but this is the best dental experience I’ve ever had. Dr. Durden is treating my teeth with a great deal of knowledge and respect. My hygienist is very thorough but very gentle. Where have these people been all my life? Now I actually look forward to my appointments. Thank you Winterville Dental Clinic, I love you!

Carol B.

Dr Whitworth and the Fallen Bridge

Monday morning (7/30/2018) I reported that my temporary bridge had dislocated and was given an appointment at 2 PM to correct it. At 2 PM, the bridge was re-glued and while I was there, a ‘full mouth’ assessment was made (ahead of appointment on 8/13). I really appreciate the quick turnaround on my dental problem. And, I enjoy the pleasantness and the professionalism of all the folks at Winterville Dental.

William L.

Everyone in the office make me feel like family. Now that's a good feeling I can take with me everywhere I go! Thank you all so much!!

Marida W.

A dentist office I would recommend

From the front of the office to the chair all the way to checkout this office was welcoming, friendly and caring. My kids were very nervous going in based on a previous dentist they had been to but by the time the left they felt very comfortable and at ease. It good to know at their next visit they will be in good hands.

Erika L.

Always Great!

I have been with Winterville Dental for years and wouldn't change for anything. They have great attention to detail, always listen to me and address any concerns (or irrational fears in my case!) and make sure I am always comfortable and completely informed every step of the way. Never used a better dental practice, they are professional and friendly.

Lillian S.

Professional compassionate care

What a pleasure to get a crown in one visit so painlessly. Dr. Durden pays close attention to details and the quality of care is very up to date. He combines years of experience with the latest of equipment. The computer modeling of the teeth and computer-controlled sculpting of the crown makes it a much better (and faster) experience for the patient.

Scott H.

High quality practice, very friendly and knowledgeable

I always have a wonderful experience when I go to this practice! They all are very friendly and I consider them my friends!

Donna M.

Awesome People!

Everyone always treats me like family.

Kasi C.

Robin P.

Consistently Excellent

Dr. Whitworth and Karen are total professionals in addition to warm and caring folks who love people and love taking care of their dental needs. I am so pleased with the care I’ve received from Dr Whitworth. He goes the extra mile, and he is well loved by his staff and patients. Thank you so much,keep up the excellent work, and God bless you all!

Elizabeth C.

Best Practices

Staff here are amazingly professional and proficient in all that they do. Every team member is friendly, engaging and knowledgeable.

Marcia W.

A very good experience

It was my first time seeing Dr. Whitworth and I am beyond pleased with him. He is a great dentist and took my quirky personality---that especially comes out because of my fear of the dentist----and ran with it. He and Leigh were wonderful at making me feel comfortable. I was petrified because I have rarely had any work done to my front teeth so they both assured me that I would be just fine......I was and I am. The work was perfect and Dr. Whitworth was considerate enough to allow me to sit in that chair until he got the tooth fixed because of my fear that it would crack before I could come back for the repair. I know it interfered with his lunch break but that did not seem to concern him at all. I appreciate how I am treated at Winterville Dental Clinic. Thank You!

Wanda G.

Great experience. wonderful people.

Everyone is kind and caring. Great doctors great staff!

Barbara S.

Consistent Excellence!

The folks at Winterville Dental are tops. They show great attention to detail. They are familiar with and use some of the newest dental technology and are personable, friendly, thoughtful and considerate in all that they do. The hygienists are awesome. Cleanings are not painful, and they are in tune with patient comfort throughout. Dentists used to make me a little nervous/anxious, but now I look forward to going. My dental health has definitely improved since I started going to Winterville Dental, and I'm glad that my child's formative dental experience is pleasant, not painful.

Lauren W.

Y’all rock and know how to make someone feel comfortable and like they are family. Thank you Crew for the awesome and amazing work y’all do. Keep ROCKING.

Stephanie T.

Professional and friendly

The staff at WD are truly the best. I love that they take to time to learn things about the patients and make them feel comfortable for the visits. My 3 and 7 yr old actually enjoy when they have a dentist visit. The time they take to make sure everything is done right makes going to the dentist better. I would highly recommend this wonderland staff to anyone looking for a friendly atmosphere and hard workers.

Jessica C.

Best staff!

I have been going to Winterville Dental for several years. I have never been in a medical office with such friendly AND professional staff. I have had several different procedures done with zero pain. Every question is patiently answered.

Wonderful Dental Office

All of the staff and Dr. Durden are absolutely wonderful. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They genuinely care about you and the health of your teeth. I could not have asked for better care for my children! Thank you Winterville Dental!

The care that the staff and doctors show their patients is phenomenal. They are friendly and give you exact explanations of the procedures that are being utilized. They never leave you unattended when you are in their chair. It is fun to go to the dentist.

Everything was taken care of. Went to get my teeth cleaned and as always had a good check, and all the staff is so kind. Thanks

Linda P.

Periodontal Laser Treatment & cleaning of bottom teeth

I have always dreaded going to a dentist (bad experience as a child). Other than having impressions taken last week, this was my first experience with Winterville Dental. Everyone I came in contact with was so professional and helpful that I really felt at ease there. I am in for several more gum treatments and extractions of the upper teeth and new dentures put in. I really don't feel as fearful as before because I know I will get the best treatment by everyone in that office.

Laverne T.

Very friendly and calm environment.

I had two crowns replaced as well as a hand full of fillings done the same day. I cannot thank Miss Jennifer and Dr. Whitworth enough for taking care of me so well. If I were uncomfortable or nervous in any way they would do a great job of making me feel relaxed and comfortable. I would recommend this dental office to anyone and everyone.

Jennifer W.

They are always friendly and sincerely interested in your comfort and well-being. It is a pleasure to have an appointment here.

Caroline D.

Awesome dentist, does excellent work, wonderful calming personality and I have never felt any pain! Staff very professional and friendly! Took me awhile but finally found a wonderful dentist worth staying with!!!

Barbara R.

Every time I come to the office I feel as if I'm a apart of your staff. I feel so loved and at home, no other doctor office I have ever been to has made me feel so loved. Please don't ever change this world needs more like you.

Friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere

I was very happy I chose Winterville Dental, based on a coworker’s rave review! The staff was very friendly and appeared happy to be there not just because it was their job, but because they enjoyed what they were doing! The office was comfortable and it was one of the most pleasant experiences I have had at the dentists! Dr. Whitworth was friendly, pleasant, informative, and professional.

Very Professional, addressed my needs adeptly.

The staff was very friendly. I enjoyed interacting with everyone. My problem could not be resolved at this time, but the level of care is evident. I will go back again as warranted and send my wife if she needs dental care. I'd like to thank everyone there. A great bunch of people.

Jim C.

Prompt, professional, friendly service

Have been a patient of Winterville Dental Clinic since 1990 - have never had anything but excellent care from Dr. Durden and his staff. I think Dr. Durden stays abreast of current techniques and technologies in his field which is how he is able to give excellent care designed to meet the needs of individual patients. Am 100 % satisfied with the care I receive at Winterville Dental.

Jill B.

Great job

The staff made me feel comfortable, and explained everything to me to where I understood.

Stephanie P.


I was nervous due to sensitive teeth, but Leigh was so mindful. There wasn’t even one moment of discomfort. I was beyond relieved and so thankful for her knowledge and obvious experience with clients like me. Thank you for listening to my concerns and following through. I was very happy with my visit.

C F.

Best dental care around!

My experience with this office is always a positive care, friendliest service, true concern for your well being and knowledgeable staff. You do not find this type of service just anywhere....Winterville Dental ,PC is the best of the best.

Karen B.

Superior Customer Service

I have been interviewing other area dentists. All the staff were cheerful and kind. I walked in feeling hesitant, expecting to be disappointed again bc I wasn't going to heard about my current dental situation. But Dr. Durden actually listened to what I really want and with the help of his staff, we're going to work out a plan to get me where I am happy to smile again.

Celeste W.

Years Of Wonderful!

Winterville Dental has been working with me for years. I actually want to go to the dentist just to see my friends! They’re all so kind and very, very considerate of you and your comfort. I’ve never met a group of people more genuinely ready to help make people’s lives better.

Annabeth W.


I felt very safe and totally cared for and informed. The staff and dentist went out of their way to make the always terrifying experience as nice as possible! I would definitely recommend your office to everyone and think y’all are great!


Excellent service with friendly attitude

My first visit. 2 visits in one week including and emergency appointment same morning. excellent staff. Dr. Durden is awesome. I've found a new dental home.

William G.

When I left I still had all my teeth. That's a good thing, plus they were clean and sparkly.

Wonderful dental office! Everyone is super nice and Dr. Durden is wonderful!

Dena G.

I drive over 100 miles because there is nobody better!

Fast, effective, great in billing, awesome cleaning, accommodates to 3 people for convenience...all around awesome!

Robin W.

More than expected

I normally don't like going to dentist. They made me feel at ease, and treated me great. I don't like getting shots, but I never knew they had given me one. Everyone of the staff are great and caring.

Scott T.

My husband , Jim, was very satisfied with his recent visit to your office. He had no trouble with the tooth removal. Everyone in your office was so friendly and helpful. When Jim is finished with his treatments I will start . Look forward to many visits to your office . Jim does not do emails or Facebook. He doesn’t even have a cell phone!

Laverne T.

1st timer

I am a new patient at Winterville Dental. I felt so at home with the service I received. Everyone was so nice and helpful. To be honest I hate going to the dentist, but not anymore. They told me what to expect, what was needed, and what the charge would be before anything was done. I am looking forward to seeing how they can help me in the future.

Scott T.

Very personable staff, handled my problem very professionally

Assessed my problem as an abscessed tooth requiring a root canal. Prescribed an antibiotic and scheduled a day for root canal. I am very pleased with the overall care, so far.

Gerald N.

Best dental work I have ever had

Very good and worked like it should, the office is great all the way around. Staff and Dr's are great had zero problems, don't feel cheated on the overall cost and I had full dentures done and a great back up set also.

Kevin M.

As a new client I was made to feel comfortable and also...this is important: I wasn't made to feel like just another person to hurry through. I like the special attention they gave to me in order to make me feel at ease.

Karen Y.

26 years and going strong!

I’ve been working with Dr. Durden for 26 years now. I am always grateful for his professional excellence and dedication to continued learning. He has helped with bruxism (teeth clenching in my sleep), migraines, and sleep apnea over the years as well as alerted me to other health concerns I was not aware of. He really cares about patients and I feel that he sees ways to improve patients health through his work. He has improved mine! His team is excellent, and the practice is very friendly, flexible and fun to work with. I strongly recommend this practice to anyone!

Mary M.

Excellent and Efficient

Came in for a routine cleaning. Staff was very friendly and timely. A tiny cavity was discovered and Dr. Whitworth patched it quicker than I could have imagined. Very positive experience!

Jordan N.

Great Job..

Dr. Whitworth did a real good job , got there early and wasn't there long before going back for service. Every one there works together and is very professional ..Thanks so much..

Linda S P.

My experience was great as always. I would recommend others to come here also.

Sharon C.

Wonderful as always!

My child gave his visit two thumbs up! Wonderful group - always make us feel like family.

Michelle B.

Complete professionalism and very patient centered

I leave each appointment with a sense that the entire team at their office cares about my smile, teeth, and also personal well being. They are a fist class organization top to bottom, and a delight to interact with. I truly look forward to going to my appointments there--- who would ever have guessed??? NOT ME For Sure.

Michael H.

Great people and a positive experience!

Everyone in this office is exceptional! The dentist is not my favorite place to go by any means, but the care and compassion shown by Winterville Dental is bar none. After a rough day of getting X-rays and being presented an absolute ridiculous quote from a corporate dental chain, Winterville Dental worked me in the same day and stayed late to find out exactly what I needed to have done. Spend your money local, they appreciate it more and also deserve it more than big corporations do. After over 10 years I have avoided going to the dentists office, I can now say that I will be going to this office anytime they recommend me to.

Tyler R.

Great service

Paisley had her first dentist apt. WD did an amazing job with her, she wasn’t scared at all just a little nervous but they helped her through that, by the end she was ready to come and do it again!

Jessica C.

I like that I can talk to my support team and get the care I need. This is the first dentist were the cleaning of my teeth is as good as with my periodontist support. I had a crown put on this visit. It went very well. I like they explain everything to me as the process happens. I feel my teeth and mouth are in great hands.

Dave W.

Dr. Whitworth is Amazing

I have serious dental phobia, and Dr. Whitworth is the ONLY dentist I’ve ever been to that could put me at ease. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. You won’t be disappointed!!!

Stephanie R.

The Best

Exceptional experience! Thanks to the entire staff.

Kenny W.

Great service. They gave me great service with a wonderful smile.

Patrick H.

Exceptional Service

Exceptional service as usual! Each person I came in contact with was kind, welcoming, and professional. The whole staff is amazing!

Rhonda D.

Help in an emergency

Came in with an emergency situation, was not a regular patient. Staff worked to squeeze me in that same day, everyone was kind and professional. Would not hesitate to recommend this practice to anyone.

Patricia W.

Professional and friendly service

Unlike most people, I like going to the dentist. Even if this weren't true, I believe that I would find going to the dentist a very positive experience after visiting Winterville Dental, PC. The entire staff are friendly, professional and personable. You are greeted warmly as soon as you enter the main reception area. Once you are taken back to the work space, there is always a friendly staff member with you. Everyone I have recommended use this office has thanked me.

Eddien N.

Deeply impressed!

As new patient with a semi-emergency my situation and myself were handled with professional courtesy, left feeling deeply appreciative as though I had won the lottery.

Roger C.

Great check up

With my last check up it was great, everyone there is so nice and friendly..

Linda P.

Top shelf treatment

If you want that ‘Good to be home feeling’ go see Dr. Durden and his colleagues.

Richard S.

Two Crowns in one Morning Start to Finish!

As always, I was impressed with the proficiency, teamwork, empathy, and respect given by the Winterville dental team. I have been delaying the replacement of an asymptomatic upper crown for over a year. When the crown just below it cracked and fell out, I decided it was time to replace both of them. Staff researched my insurance plan, checked the porcelain warrantee, and worked out a greatly reduced price for the work. They had some equipment malfunction that slowed things down but explained everything to me. Dr. Durden took time to answer several questions I had. He made sure the new crowns fit in my nighttime appliance.

Cathy P.

If you are looking for great dental care and concern for your well being this is the right place to come to.. great people! Dr Brandon Whitworth is the best in town. If you have a fear of dentist or have children that are, it doesn't get any better than these people.

Donna B.

As I have come to expect, my visit experience was excellent. Added to the professionalism of the staff, their friendly and personal demeanor always put me at ease.

Bob C.

Great People Great Service

They are very efficient. The people are so nice. Everyone is understanding and kind to me and my family.

Cata F.

Even before I walk in the door, Winterville Dental is already exceeding my expectations. They send me a text reminder in advance and make it easy to confirm that I will be able to make the appointment. I have never had to wait more than about 5 minutes before I am seen by the dental hygienist, the staff is friendly and highly competent. I have hated going to the dentist my whole life but love Winterville Dental. They make everything so easy and comfortable.

Lillian S.


A crown and filling were accomplished at this visit. Except for the sound of the drill which I hate....the visit was comfortable and painless. Although a long visit was necessary for completion, Dr. Durden and staff were kind to ask several times ‘are you doing okay?’ They warned ahead of time what was next, and as always kept me warm with a blanket!!!

Pam W.

Very professional and supportive

I have some fears about going to the dentist since I've never had to have any dental work done, but the staff was so friendly and supportive, I felt right at home. This is a fabulous dental office.

Katie T.

Professional, high-quality treatment and a staff that makes you not mind dental appointments.

I have always dreaded dental appointments and procedures until finding Winterville Dental about a year ago. The staff and dentists are wonderful and give the highest level of care. I can honestly say I no longer have dental phobia. The best part is, as a result of Dr. Durden's TMJ treatment, my headaches and neck pain are gone. I am so thankful to the person who recommended them to me.
