“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.”EducationLoma Linda University, Doctorate, Dental Surgery (DDS)University of Washington, BA Dental Hygiene (RDH)Over 30 years of experience in dentistryPost-Graduate TrainingWorld-Class Kois Center, Advancing Dentistry through Sciencewww.koiscenter.com, Mentorship LevelSpear Study ClubSummit Study ClubSeattle Study ClubProfessional Membership - In Her 32 Years in Dentistry, She has Been Involved In:American Dental AssociationAmerican Academy of Cosmetic DentistryWashington State Dental AssociationEducational Articles by Dr. Marie“A CSI Approach to Diagnosing Dental Disease”“All Tooth Pastes Are Not Created Equal”“Your Dentist Can Detect Oral Cancer Early”Awards & RecognitionDental Economics, Featured DentistWashington Athletic Center, Featured PresenterAwarded Seattle Metropolitan Top Dentist 2009Awarded Seattle Metropolitan Top Dentist 2010Awarded Seattle Metropolitan Top Dentist 2011Awarded Seattle Metropolitan Top Dentist 2012Awarded Seattle Metropolitan Top Dentist 2015Awarded Seattle Metropolitan Top Dentist 2016Community InvolvementLeukemia Lymphoma Society, Co-Chair 2011Leukemia Lymphoma Society, Chair 2012Chamber of Commerce Member, City of AuburnChamber of Commerce Member, City of BellevueSpecial Olympics VolunteerSeattle Children’s Hospital, Yearly Auction VolunteerSeattle Celebrity Waiters, Yearly Fund Raising Volunteer

I just had my first visit to auburn family dental. Everything about my visit was great. The office was easy to find and the front office staff were pleasant, friendly and professional. Once in the chair I appreciated not only the professionalism but also how friendly everyone was with me and each other. It was a very thorough exam and I will definitely be referring others to this office. I'm not a huge fan of going to the dentist but this group did a great job at putting me at ease. Thank you Auburn Family Dental.
Best all around dental practice! Dr. Durflinger's work stands above the rest! Amazing staff and beautiful office!

The staff are wonderful and make you feel like their top priority. Dr. Marie takes the time to review your films so you can have a real understanding of what is going with your teeth! The office is very modern. I am so pleased that I have found this dental office.
