Congratulations Dr. Durden!
Please join the Winterville Dental Team in celebration of Dr. Durden’s appointment for his second term as President of the Georgia Academy of General Dentistry. We are so proud of his accomplishment! The GAGD serves its membership by providing quality continuing education to general dentists throughout the State of Georgia. Dr. Durden will continue his efforts to help this highly respected organization continue to grow and support Georgia dentists.
Athens area dentist Dr. Phillip Durden is now offering OsteoReady™ dental implants.
Research indicates that 69% of 35 to 44 year old adults have lost at least one permanent tooth to decay, trauma, periodontal (gum) disease or a failed root canal. And, by the age of 74, nearly 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth.
OsteoReady dental implants are designed to be placed using a minimally-invasive technique that can usually be completed in less appointments, resulting in reduced healing times. Dental implants can be used to secure a dental crown, fixed bridge, or to stabilize a loose denture.
If you are interested in learning about the benefits of dental implant care, please don’t hesitate to call the Winterville Dental team, 706.742.7000. Our privately-owned dental office is conveniently located 7 minutes east of Athens.
Dr. Durden and Jennifer attended a hands-on workshop recently to learn more about helping patients that struggle with TMJ Disorder (TMD). Patients that have TMJ problems often experience frequent headaches, jaw joint pain, and can have a host of symptoms including neck and shoulder pain, migraines and even pain and tingling in the hands and fingers. Please contact us if you think you may have symptoms of TMJ Disorder
Dr. Phillip Durden has been named as President-Elect for the Georgia Academy of General Dentistry. This appointment is made by his peers for his commitment to the profession of dentistry.

We were proud and humbled to support Community Christmas in 2011!
Catherine Drewry of Crawford started the Oglethorpe County organization over 15 years ago when she discovered there wasn’t a nonprofit organization collecting clothes and toys for kids in her community.
Her nonprofit – Community Christmas – has grown from helping a few children to making Christmas special to over 500 kids today.
“Really, it’s the whole community that comes together,” said Drewry, a Crawford resident who designs landscapes and serves as the director of children’s ministries at an Athens church. (onlineathens.com 12/2010).
Mrs. Thiel, volunteer at Community Christmas, shared with us that not only do they need toys, but basic necessities such as shoes, clothing and personal care items can also make a huge difference.
Agencies like the Department of Family and Children Services pass along names of needy families in Oglethorpe and wish lists to Community Christmas, and the program also helps provide Christmas presents to foster children.
Dr. Durden and the Winterville Dental Team applaud the efforts of Ms. Drewry, Mrs. Thiel and the Community Christmas organization!!
Ready to help? People interested in getting involved can call Catherine Drewry at (706) 743-3592. Donations are accepted year around, and can also be mailed to 143 Bowen Farm Road, Crawford, GA 30630.
