Our Doctor

  • Dr. Durstin Hooper

    Dr. Hooper is known for his caring touch and witty sense of humor, helping even the most nervous patients to feel comfortable. Dr. Hooper helps his patients in all areas of dentistry, from prevention and emergencies to crowns, dentures, root canals, and even more complex restorative care. He loves learning and strives to stay up on the most modern techniques and technologies. He has no shame admitting to listening to dental podcasts at the gym in the morning or on a long road trip.

    Dr. Hooper grew up as part of a ranching family. He was raised in Texas, but his ranching roots stem from here in Arizona, where both parents were born and raised. Growing up Dr. Hooper visited the rim country multiple times year to spend time with family; so coming to Payson makes him feel like he is coming home.

    Outside of the dental office, Dr. Hooper enjoys spending time outdoors, and just about any sports related activity. He has a passion for golf, horseback riding, hunting, hiking, and living an active lifestyle with his wife and children. Dr. Hooper is married to his wife Shantel of 13 years, and they have four children; Jett (6), Kenna (4), Branson (3), and Ridge (7 Months). They have recently relocated to the Payson area and are looking forward to becoming part of the community, and laying down their roots.
