Dr. Durbin's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Durbin "Committed to changing lives... one smile at a time. “I feel very fortunate to play such an important role in the lives of so many people. To be able to combine my artistic tendencies, my concern for others and my strong sense of integrity each day is very gratifying. Yet, the real reward comes from helping kids and adults to feel comfortable with their appearance and live their lives with confidence and high self esteem. After a quarter-century as an orthodontist, I'm still powerfully motivated by this. In fact, it's what has pushed me to pursue new levels of success and innovation in orthodontic care. And it's what powers me to total commitment to each person's unique needs.” Fellow: World Federation of Orthodontists Fellow: University of Kentucky College of Dentistry DMD: Doctor of Dental Medicine (distinction), University of Kentucky College of Dentistry, Lexington, KY, 1978 Military Service: United States Air Force Dental Corps, Captain, 1978-81 MSD: Orthodontics, University of Kentucky College of Dentistry, Lexington, KY, 1983 Inventor: Flosspik polypropylene interproximal dental cleaner Speaker/Lecturer: Recognized authority on dentofacial orthopedics; lectures to orthodontists on a national scale regarding headgear-free appliance therapies; frequent network television appearances on orthodontic topics.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Durbin "As an ultra-conservative, we almost never have to extract permanent teeth; even in very crowded cases. Invisalign Teen and for adults has proven itself to be a true Premier mechanism for the orthodontic specialist; permanent retainers have allowed our 47,000 successfully treated cases to enjoy a lifetime smile (no relapse back to crooked)"
