Dr. Burns' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Burns "Working in the dental field is somewhat of a family business. My father was an orthodontist, my brother is an oral surgeon, his wife is a dentist, and my wife is a dental hygienist. I consider my patients to be part of this family and I like getting to know them and learning about their lives. I love solving the puzzle of poorly aligned teeth and seeing a beautiful smile at the end of treatment. I also am a very hands-on orthodontist and I do not delegate everything to my assistants. I really enjoy placing the braces, bending the wires, and getting truly involved in all aspects of care."

Patient Testimonials

This content was provided by Dr. Burns "He is very pleasant and easy to talk with. We like how we can go in & they are on top of things. They do what they can to get the kids back to school & the parents back to work. You feel like they care about you & your family & you are not just a patient. -Katlyn"
