Jon

Registered Dental Hygienist

“I really feel like Auburn Family Dental is a ‘family.’  Most of the staff has been been working together for over 10 years and most of our patients have been with us from the beginning.  It’s very rewarding to be able to help people maintain their health over the years.”

Jon has been practicing dental hygiene for 25 years and has been a valued team member at Auburn Family Dental for the last 12 years.  He  received his Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Washington.   FUN FACTS:  I am known as the prankster at the office.  I like to keep things fun and exciting! I was born and raised in Washington State.  I have a daughter and we love spending time together! I jet-ski and travel any opportunity I get, and my favorite travel destinations are family vacations to Disneyland and dental mission trips to other countries.


Brooklyn

She grew up in Auburn and graduated from the Yakima Valley School of Dental Hygiene. FUN FACTS: “I just bought my first house and it is great! I love to play and watch just about any sport especially basketball. I have a huge family and a lot of them are in the dental field. I travel a lot and keep a scrapbook of all my adventures.”

I have worked for many different dentists over the years and I believe my experience significantly benefits the patients I treat. Of all the dentists I have worked for, I have been with Dr. Durflinger the longest…since she graduated from dental school. We have all been together so long I think of everyone here as family.”

Wendy Graduated from Bates Technical College, School of Dental Assisting and has been practicing in the dental field for 27 years. She is Dr. Durflinger’s Lead Assistant at both of her dental practices and has been with Dr. Marie for 18 years. FUN FACTS: I love football!!!

“I am Dr. Durflinger’s newest team member. I recently graduated from dental assisting school and am planning on continuing my education in dentistry. I want to be a dentist. Working for Dr. Durflinger is a huge advantage because she is a great role model for me. I am learning so much working for her at both of her practices and am excited to start my prerequisites for dental school while I am working part-time.”
