Dr. Flesher + Family

Dr. Deren Flesher DDS

Dr. Deren Flesher is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry. He received his undergraduate degree from Oklahoma State University. Dr. Flesher is a longtime Oklahoma resident and is a graduate of Duncan High School in Duncan, Oklahoma.

Dr. Flesher often provides dental care at events like Oklahoma Mission of Mercy, and through organizations such as Good Shepherd Ministries in Oklahoma City. In additional to local volunteerism, Dr. Flesher has also been on international mission trips, donating dentistry to those in need abroad.

His goal is always to treat the person, not just their mouth. Instead of talking to his patients, Dr. Flesher talks with his patients and includes them in the decision-making process to develop the best treatment plan for their long term health and satisfaction.
