Born and raised in Fort Scott, Kansas, Dr. John C. Durling II graduated from Pittsburg State University in 1992 with a BS in Biology and is a member of Beta Beta Beta Biology Honor Society. Upon graduation from UMKC School of Dentistry in 1996, he practiced in Fort Scott and Pittsburg through 1999. He joined this practice in December of 1999, and purchased it in 2001, where it then became known as Dr. John Durling and Associates.

Dr. Durling believes in collaborating with his patients so he can better address their individual dental needs. “By taking the time to listen to my patients, I can address their wants and needs, as well as offer information and an opportunity for them to receive the best dentistry available.”

“I am thankful to be a part of this dental group. Our staff and partners are very supportive and are an integral part of the success of the practice. I am also blessed to have a wonderful wife, Sherri, who encourages me and supports my efforts to be the best dentist possible. My sons, Jaden, Grant, and Levi, are also an important source of inspiration.”

“I can’t believe it’s been almost twenty years. I look forward to serving the Joplin community for many more years to come.”
