Dr. Durbin earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Minor in Gerontology from Kansas State University. He then went on to receive  his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, College of Dentistry.

Dr. Durbin and his wife, Jenny, have four children. They greatly enjoy outdoor  activities like sports, hiking, fishing, or just playing with their pets. Some of Derek's hobbies are reading, working out, and spending time with family and friends. Last, and what Derek would consider the foundation of who his is, is his involvement in his local church and service local and global missions work.
