Where Beauty, Health,
and Comfort Come Together

What Makes Our Dental Practice Unique?

Our patients are our friends. We take the time to develop long-lasting relationships that are built on mutual trust and open communication. Here at Auburn Family Dental, we have seen many families grow over the years and it has been a blessing to care for them and be a part of their lives.


Dental economics has recognized Dr. Durflinger as “The Zentist” because of the spa-like environment and comfortable experience we offer our patients. As our patient, you will receive the best care available from a highly experienced leader in the field of dentistry, all in a setting with a relaxing ambiance. We offer amenities such as soft pillows, blankets, calming music and heated massage chairs to create a serene atmosphere for our patients. We even have a water wall to add to the peacefulness and on those cold days a warm fireplace to cozy up to.


Dr. Marie Durflinger has carefully assembled her team at Auburn Family Dental. Each member of “Team Marie” has ample experience and highly specialized skills. For this reason, we will take great pride in the communal aspect of our work. When you have an appointment with us, you will receive care from many members of our team. This ensures you are getting the best of the best every time, and helps us to create a strong emotional investment in each and every patient we serve. We consider ourselves partners with our patients in the development and management of excellent oral health care. We strongly encourage our patients to contact us with any concerns or questions they may have.


Dental health directly impacts your whole body health. At Auburn Family Dental, every patient receives a thorough examination in order to establish your level of dental health. We believe a thorough initial examination will build a solid foundation that will lead to a healthy mouth for life.
