Meet Dr. Marie, Our Experienced Dentist in Auburn

Dr. Marie Durflinger

“I believe in treating my patients like family. It all starts with open communication, mutual trust and respect. I believe that the relationship I have with my patients should be educational and lead to the prevention of disease. My team and I are dedicated to a patient centered approach and encourage our patients to be involved in co-diagnosis to achieve their goals. I don’t rush into anything without proper planning because an excellent result is one that is functional and long-lasting as well as beautiful.

Because your dental health is so important to the health of your whole body, I focus on prevention and the early diagnosis of dental disease. When dental disease is treated in its early stages, the impact on cardiovascular diseases and diabetes can be greatly reduced. Remember, the journey to dental health is a marathon, not a sprint and good oral health can significantly improve the quality of your life. Lasting results come from planning, segmenting your treatment, excellent skill and quality craftsmanship. I look forward to building a lasting relationship with you and your family.”
