Dr. Huynh

Dr. Matthew E. Durschlag is beyond excited to join the incredible team at San Diego Smile Pro with Dr. Adams and Dr. Hayes. His unique dental career, serving as a Navy dental officer in Okinawa, Japan, working as a general dentist in a private practice, and then going back to school to specialize in orthodontics has given him a different perspective that allows him to treat patients in an individualized and comprehensive manner. With roots in both New York and San Diego, Dr. Durschlag is thrilled to work with patients in what he considers to be the most beautiful city in the United States. On weekends, Dr. Durschlag enjoys staying active- playing hockey, golfing, skiing, fishing, and exploring new culinary endeavors. He places the patient experience and quality results before all else, and uses the latest technology and techniques to provide patients with nothing but the best care.
