Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Dr. Durbin is great along with his staff. Every other dentist office I have been to they either take forever or aren’t friendly at all, none of this is the case at Durbin Dental. I have never had a long wait time, they extracted my wisdom teeth and I got Invisalign all at his office. This is why I make it a point to drive from Bardstown, hands down best care around.

I had a great experience at Durbin Dental from start to finish. I wish I would’ve came to them sooner. The receptionist who booked my appointment was friendly and knowledgeable. When you walk in they greet you and know most of the patients by name already. The office is very clean and modern looking. I barely had to wait in the waiting room long at all. I had been having some painful wisdom teeth and Dr Durbin took them out for me the same day! He was fast yet still 100% thorough. I was terrified but he was kind, reassuring and funny. When I came back for my follow-up appointment, Dr Durbin still remembered me from the previous week. He goes the extra mile to get to know his patients and truly help them. I can’t day enough good things about him and his staff.

Dr. Durbin and his staff was phenomenal.. He spent time to explain what was going on and reassured me about my implant.. took care of my needs 100%.. the office is so welcoming and everyone treats you like a friend vs a patient.. Office is gorgeous as well.. I’ve had my implants placed prior to meeting Dr Durbin but if I ever decide to do more he will be the man I will see.

The office ensured I was seen quickly even though I arrived 30″ early. My X-rays were completely quickly but efficiently. The Dental Hygienist did an excellent cleaning in prep to see Dr. Durbin and provided recommendations to aid in maintaining good dental health. Dr. Durbin is very personable and make me feel very comfortable. He offered recommendations that other Dentist failed to provide. He is now my permanent Dentist and will be for my entire family. Thank you and your entire staff.

Al of my children look forward to their trips to Durbin Dental! They are not just friendly but also quick and efficient which is helpful for a busy mom. They are also good about telling me areas to watch or things to help the kids with so they don’t turn into problems later. Thankfully going on years of no cavities thanks to excellent preventive care from Durbin Dental!

We’re newcomers to the area, and visited Dr. Durbin for the first time recently. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The office and equipment are clean and new (the flat-screen tvs over every chair were a nice touch), and the staff are very warm, while professional. Dr. Durbin is very personable too; after a couple more visits for an extraction and check-up, he almost feels like an old friend. Highly recommended.

My first impression when I toook My 73 year old mother there to have her teeth cleaned was just how nice the facility was and the staff!! I wasnt pleased with my mother’s prior dentist, so I switched her. Then, when my mom went in the back area, I met Dr. Durbin and was floored by his mannerism!! He was so kind and gentle and so friendly!! My current dentist is OK…. However, I am always seeing a different doctor when I go there. So, I decided right then and there that the rest of my family members (all 5) were going to come to this location! And My mother just had two crowns and a root canal done along with several other smaller things. She came home RAVING about how great the procedure was (Cmon, this is a root canal!) and how amazing her teeth looked! She had minimal pain and spent about 3 hours in his chair. I highly recommend Dr. Durbin and his Staff! And I am glad that they were able to take all 5 of us in – my husband and son go for their cleaning next week. Thank you for taking such great care of my mom! V/R, Theresa Foster

I highly recommend Dr. Durbin and his staff at Durbin dental. They are very professional, they really show that they care about their patients. The atmosphere is extremely clean and they make you feel right at home which is hard to do at a dental office! Im usually petrified to go to the dentist but iv found a dentist office that makes the experience a breeze now. Again take my recommendation and let Durbin dental take care of your dental problems you wont be disappointed i have no doubt about it!

Just finished another regular check up at Durbin Dental. Doctor Durbin has been our dentist since we moved to Elizabethtown five years ago, and to say he and his staff are the best seems too small of a compliment. I can go on and on about the beautiful office, friendly and competent staff and hygienists, but I was reminded again today of what really makes Durbin Dental stand above the rest. Dr. Durbin is 100% focused on patient care with integrity, and he NEVER recommends a procedure simply to pad his own pocket. He is willing to discuss treatment options and procedures but without any “sales pitch” added in. What a welcome change these days when so much about healthcare seems to be about the bottom (or TOP) dollar. So kudos to you Dr. Durbin and your wonderful staff.

I first met Doctor Durbin when I was filming a commercial for his business several years ago. He was very kind and polite. He actually tipped me, something no other client had ever done. I was also struck by the beauty of his overall business. For a dentist’s office, it was very inviting and friendly with a professional and (also friendly!) staff. The facilities were top notch beautiful with large windows in front of each chair, something I had never seen before (not even a dentists’ office in Costa Rica!). That was several years ago. Since then I had not seen or spoken to Mr. Durbin. Had it not been for his offices’ location some 60 miles from me I would have made him my go-to dentist. Fast-forward to a month ago, my wife goes in to our dentist for a pain in her molar. The dentist suggested that my wife get a gingivectomy, root canal and cap the tooth, something that was going to be $3,200. I called Durbin Dental and explained who I was and explained our situation and asked if they could help us with a second opinion. Dr. Durbin obliged, he got us in early the next morning (first thing on a busy day). Dr. Durbin examined my wife’s teeth and deduced that all that was necessary was a gingivectomy to clear the path of the tooth and a filling in the molar. Something that ended up saving us thousands of dollars. I am writing this review to encourage anyone in any need of dental work to please visit Durbin Dental, even if it’s out of your way. I believe it will be well worth it. Thank you again to Dr. Durbin and his staff. Evan B. Peters

I have had my fair share of traumatic experiences at the dentist, but that all changed when I went to Durbin Dental! The staff is extremely friendly and the care I received from Dr. Durbin was outstanding. For the first time in years I left the dentist office with a smile on my face! I highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of a dentist in Hardin county �

I absolutely LOVE Dr. Durbin & his fabulous assistant’s!! They went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable, & did anything and everything they could to make sure I was relaxed. I seriously felt at home & like I have known them my whole life!! If you want to be treated special & like you truly matter to them, come see Derrick Durbin & his gorgeous crew!! Thank you for making me feel such at ease. My wisdom teeth have been such a problem, & Dr.Durbin is just amazing!!

We have been going to Dr. Durbin for many years. He and his staff are always so nice and welcoming. We typically just have to go twice a year but, it feels like you see them all the time. They remember you and oft times recall what you talked about the last time you were there. They take that extra minute to ask about you, family, etc. I remember after one procedure Dr. Durbin called to check on my daughter when he could have had a staff member call. My hygienist (Chelsea) is phenomenal!! Her personality is great and she too makes you feel like you’ve known each other forever. Chelsea has a gentle touch, notices the little problem areas, makes suggestions, and really does an excellent job cleaning my teeth. I like that she is my hygienist each time I go. If you are new to the area or just need a new dentist for some reason I highly recommend this office.

I’ve been taking myself and my 3 kids to Durbin Dental for 10 years now and I have to say I think they get nicer every time I go lol. Seriously though, I had the best cleaning ever today!!! My hygienist Chelsea, well I think she was born to clean teeth. Her hands do amazing things. I didn’t even know she was in my mouth but my teeth feel so clean. Thanks hon!! Maria is a awesome lady who just makes you feel like family. She has the best memory ever and knows everyone who comes in by name. If you were a new patient I have no doubt that everyone there would personally introduce themselves and make sure you are comfy. I’m about to have back surgery and these guys signed and mailed the sweetest card to me. At Durbin Dental they take the time to get to know you and your family. They welcome walk ins. Matter of fact I walked in two weeks ago with some tooth pain and they took me straight to the back to check me out. I didn’t have to wait at all. That was awesome of them. They fixed me up and I was out of there in 30 mins!! I think everyone should see Dr. Durbin!!! He’s a really nice guy too. And he would never steer you wrong. I have had many procedures like having my wisdom teeth surgically removed done by Dr. Durbin, he does a lot of procedures that other dentist may not offer. Like Root canals but does not hesitate to refer you out if he’s not comfortable. On top of all of this. They use top of the line equipment and their office it’s extremely clean. Take your kids!!! Go yourself. At least once. I promise you won’t regret it!!! I could keep talking about all the amazing things that Chelsea and Maria and all of the girls I don’t know as well can do all night. But I have to make dinner lol. I had the best time ever this morning at Durbin Dental. My kids love going there too!! Check Them out!!!

ETown and surrounding areas, look no further! This dental facility is “all that” and then some. We are new to the area and had not established a dentist yet, but alas, with children emergencies just seem to follow. This wonderfully skilled team was able to see my son the very day I called. From the second we walked through the door, to the time we departed, we were made to feel like family. It’s amazing how God puts the right people in your path at just the right time!

Dr. Durbin has been seeing our entire family of 6 for many years. I love that I can get all of the kids in at the same time and he always asks about how everyone is doing every time we go in to see him. I was in the office with my 5 year old this morning who is very apprehensive of all medical professionals and very anxious to let anyone near her. Dr. Durbin was very patient and had a positive attitude with her. He was was absolutely phenomenal with her! She even gave him a hug at the end! His staff is always kind and patient as well. We always have a good experience there and that is why we keep going back!

One of the best experiences EVER! The staff was courteous, friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable. Even met the doctor’s father real cool guy, that Mr. Durbin. It Didn’t stop there, I had a great conversation about food and traded barbecue secrets. Did not feel like I was in the dentist office at all great job today guys!!!!!

Adam L. from Elizabethtown, KY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Durbin is a consummate professional and his high standards are reflected by his staff.  The chairside manner of Dr. Durbin’s entire crew is exceptional.  I highly recommend Durbin Dental to anyone, especially those who fear a visit to the dentist.  Dr. Durbin makes every effort possible to set the right atmosphere of calm and professionalism to make what was once a feared event into a visit that any patient can approach with no misgivings.

Janielle R. from West Bloomfield Township, MI (Source: Yelp)


Durbin Dental is such a great place. We are fairly new to KY and to this practice but my son had to get his impacted wisdom teeth out this morning and was quite nervous. They immediately took him back and talked to him, made him feel truly relaxed and special. They have a separate waiting room for parents waiting on surgical cases and its very calming and well decorated. Today it happen to have an adorable little puppy to help calm parents nerves-one of the dental hygienist brought him in to socialize. Very nice treat for a dog lover like me. They came back and gave updates every step of the way. When we were finished the hygienist AND the Doctor walked us out to our car and Dr. Durbin himself loaded my son in as he was quite groggy and not sturdy on his feet. Just a nice, sweet place and super clean, which is a must for us. Highly recommend.

I have been a patient for over 10 years! Every visit has been a blessing!! Dr Durbin is the BEST!! He knows how to painlessly and properly provide all your dental needs! Christy is a caring and fantastic hygienist! April keeps the office and insurance claims effortlessly in perfect order! I highly recommend Durbin Dental for your Denistry needs!!!

Durbin Dental is awesome! They scheduled me for an appointment quickly when I explained I had oral pain. The assistant was very thorough and patient while answering all my questions. Dr. Durbin went above and beyond to attend to my concerns. He even performed my dental cleaning, which I was not originally scheduled to have. I was extremely grateful! All staff members are always friendly and polite. The atmosphere is clean and welcoming. Looking forward to using the toothbrush and whitening kit I purchased there. Thanks again, Durbin Dental! You rock!

Dr. Durbin and his staff are very genuine with their concerns for each patient. I have known him for most of my life and he is a very caring individual. When my children first showed signs of teeth I brought them in to start their dental care. He and his staff appeased my motherly mind and checked out their new teeth and we have been utilizing his service for over 20 years. He is the only dentist I hope we have to have. If he feels you need a procedure, then that means he would recommend it for his own family member, he is not going to do it unless it needs to be done. He has done a great job building his family oriented business and his hand picked staff is amazing. All who work there are genuine with their care and concern. If you are nervous about a dentist then he is your man. The only one my dad would keep going back to. Give him a try!

Thank you so much for making a Vietnams Veterans dream come true. He had beautiful teeth when he went to Vietnam. While there he has a lot of problems with his teeth and came home with a partial. You and your wonderful staff made his dream a reality. He came there to get a tooth filled because after 45 radiation treatments holes were coming in his teeth. Dr Durbin said he did not want to patch up his teeth. He worked hard with Va and got him the perfect teeth he had always dreamed of. One of the nicest cleanest offices we have ever been to. I highly recommend Durbin Dental

Dr Durbin is the absolute best Dentist! I Will never let anyone else touch my teeth. I have been seeing Dr. Durbin for 20 years and he did extensive dental work on me during my first visits to his practice. I have two crowns that have been in place for 20 years and are still going strong. That is the type of work Dr. Durbin does. No second guessing and no repeated procedures. He does it right the first time and it lasts. And not only that, I have taken 4 of my babies to him for their cleanings/Dental work. Blessed he is my dentist. ❤

Our first visit to Durbin Dental was to have a root canal and crown procedure for my son. I can’t say enough about how caring and professional the staff was. They explained everything very thoroughly and made every effort to make him comfortable. They took the time to take care of him and to explain to me what procedures were done and what else needed to be done. Dr. Durbin, Monica, Beth and Tasha were wonderful. Everyone else was great as well, and I’m sorry if I don’t remember their names. My son was very satisfied with the care he received and so was I.

Best dentist in the area. Only one who can give you 5 shots in your mouth and not feel it. The staff is super nice and always has your best interests at heart. Dr Durbin also makes you feel safe. Been to a few other dentists around etown and I’d rather wait until I can be seen by them before I went to ANY other dentist around. Highly recommend

The entire staff was Amazing! From the receptionist, to the hygienist, and Dr. Durbin! Kim was amazing to me and continued to check on my son!! Who was receiving exceptional care from Brittany. Also, Dr. Durbin made sure to provide a great experience there. The added touch was the follow up call to see how our visit was and how we felt after our appt. Monica was very sweet and pleasant!

The office staff is intelligent, efficient, friendly and professional. The office is clean, modern, comfortable and current technology for imaging, cleanings and procedures. We have always been treated so well, my 5 & 7 year old children are happy to go to the dentist because of the excellent care and kindness they receive. Dr. Durbin is so good at his job and is the kind of person you can tell loves his work and really knows what he is doing. Excellent communication about all procedures and pricing. Seems like the best place in town for many reasons.

Jackie Wilson (Source: Facebook)


Dr Durbin is wonderful!!! As a patient from another dental office for several years who received horrible news and wanted a second opinion, Dr Durbin was quick to see me. He’s very thorough, never makes you feel rushed, answers any questions, and reassures you he’s going to do everything in his power to help you. I wouldn’t recommend any other dentist in town! Thank you Dr Durbin for all your help!

Durbin Dental provides a professional environment while simultaneously providing fun for its patients. The music is new and radio edited, or it’s your favorite holiday music for that time of the year! The girls are absolutely amazing at making you feel at home and having conversations with you however casual or professional. Maria is a saint and will always go above and beyond to do what she can for you. She provides her personal cell number to clients and insists that you contact her with any questions you may have. Connie is great at contacting your insurance company and squeezing all the benefits she can for whatever dental work you need! And we all know how tricky insurance can be sometimes! Hey, everyone hates going to the dentist, but this environment makes you feel warm and happy the whole time. It’s excellent to feel so invited and comfortable where most do not. Dr. Durbin is a very friendly and straightforward man. He will always do what is best for you and can refer you elsewhere for other work–if that is what is necessary. He does a lot in his practice and excels in all that he does. This team is the best! If you are new in town or are looking for a better dentist, Doctor Durbin is the one for you!

We feel the love! Not only do we love the care we get with dental work, but the staff and Dr. Durbin equally care just as much about our family. Maria especially will reassure me I’m doing a great job with my boys teeth, but has also taken time to chat and build my confidence as a mom. April was so helpful and understanding when we had insurance problems to work through, and all the girls treat my boys so kindly – they are able to get worked on without me going back with them and come out happy each time. Thank you guys for the best customer service and care!

I’ve been to the dentists twice in the past 20 years, I haven’t been for a check up since I was 24 and I’m 36 now! I have a severe fear of work being done on my teeth, a few days ago a filling fell out from when I was 16 I was really apprehensive about going but my wife basically forced me to go! I’m glad I did ! What an amazing place!! Great service! I didn’t even really feel the route canal!! Dr Durbin is awesome and funny and has great knowledge of dentistry and British comedy ! and Kate makes sure you feel no pain whatsoever !

Daniel Alvey (Source: Google)


Haven’t been to the dentist in almost 17 years. They was super friendly, cared about me in pain and got me in same day. Office is super clean, upbeat and inviting. Dental assistants was professional, hygienic, and friendly. Kate was mine and made sure I understood everything that they needed to do, why, and how. Dr. Durbin was knowledgeable, professional, and funny. Made me feel comfortable and addressed any and all concerns. Not sure if I’m the foremost expert on dentist offices, but coming from someone who is mortified of them, Durbin Dental layed those fears to rest. Hammer and Van Can’t couldn’t get me in for a few weeks. Highly recommend! Honestly they was my second pick, but it should have been my first. Lesson learned, don’t make the same mistake.

My wisdom teeth were causing serious pain for me. Dr. Durbin and staff saw me as a new patient, and made me feel so comfortable. I have severe anxiety with doctors in general, but they were so friendly and eased my mind. I ended up getting all four wisdom teeth extracted that day, and Maria gave us her personal phone number, for questions and advice 24/7. This place and these people are absolutely amazing. I’ll never go anywhere else for my dental work. Thank you Durbin Dental! I love you guys!

I just recently moved here from the Washington D.C area and I am so happy that I finally found a dentist like Dr. Durbin. All the members of the office staff were exceptionally friendly and very professional. My entire families include myself and three children from age 7 to 3 are under the care of Dr. Durbin. The office is unbelievable clean and very comfortable atmosphere. I am very satisfied with the services and the treatment that my whole entire families have been getting from Dr. Durbin.
