Daren T. Hunt DMD

Welcome to our Florence, OR Dental Practice

Your Care Is Our Top Priority

We have been taking care of residents in the Florence/Mapleton area since 1952 when our current Doctor's Grandfather started Hunt Family Dentistry.  Our goal is to provide the best quality dental care while keeping our patients comfortable and pain-free.  Please visit our comfort page to learn about all the different ways we strive to keep you comfortable during your visit.

Informed Decision Making

We believe you the patient should be the one to make important decisions about your teeth and health. At Hunt Family Dentistry we always take the time to present all your options in an easy to understand way.  This allows you to choose what treatment best fits you. We are always available to answer any questions you might have.

"We Cater to Cowards"

Our number one priority is always you, the patient. We have a sign in our office that reads "We Cater to Cowards". We understand patients are fearful of the dentist due to poor previous experiences or stories they may have heard. Our team is focused on your specific needs to make sure you are as comfortable as possible. After appointments patients often tell us how their anxiety has vanished for upcoming appointments. See what our patients have to say on the testimonial page.

3 Generations of Care

 It all started in 1952 when Dr. Thomas M. Hunt graduated from what is now OHSU School of Dentistry and decided to settle in Florence, Oregon.  Dr. TM Hunt fell in love with living on the Oregon coast and Hunt Family Dentistry has been caring for patients ever since.  Dr. Thomas J. Hunt (Son of TM Hunt) joined the practice in 1976 and practiced over 40 years before retiring in March of 2016. Grandchildren of Dr. TM Hunt, Dr's Haley Hunt and Daren Hunt also graduated from OHSU and joined the practice in 2011 and 2014 respectively.  Dr. Haley Hunt moved to the The Dalles, Oregon and started her own practice in 2014.  Dr. Daren Hunt is continuing the tradition of his father, grandfather, and sister by providing compassionate quality dental care to the Florence community for many years to come.
