I left my former Dentist because he no longer took my insurance. The next Dr I went to did not bother to do an oral exam and did not check for oral CA. Dr Burdo is very through in his exam. He explains everything, and recommends what he thinks could or should be done, but does not push you to have work done. His staff are friendly and very competent and through. I feel I get excellent care.

As always, Dr Burdo and his staff are attentive and professional. I have confidence in his diagnosis and treatment. Dr Burdo has never suggested any unnecessary, expensive procedures for which I am grateful.

Dr. Burdo is a very thoroughl and professional doctor who not only makes you feel at home and comfortable but also very much lets you know that he cares for your dental needs. His facility and staff are all top notch and very warm and welcoming. I would recommend Dr. Burdo to anyone! I am so glad I switched dentists.
in Belmont, MI |
Dr. Burdo has been very thorough with my dental needs. I came to his practice in my 60s and discovered that I needed major dental work to keep my teeth! My previous dentist was not nearly as thorough and did not have the technology Dr. Burdo uses to complete a visual history of teeth. He is friendly and considerate of me as a patient.

Dr. Burdo is efficient, competent, and trustworthy. I have received excellent care from Dr. Burdo for over 20 years.

I have been going to Dr. Burdo since I was a child for all of my dental needs. He and his staff are exemplars of customer service and great at their jobs. Each member of the staff have always treated me with the utmost respect and concern. I have had sealants, cavities filled, and even my wisdom teeth removed with Dr. Burdo and his team. I really cannot recommend him and his team more.
in Grand Rapids, MI |
Dr. Burdo and his staff are wonderful. My special needs young adult daughter was able to have her first cleaning outside of an OR for the first time in her life. Her hygienist, Megan, was so patient and kind with her. Dr. Burdo is an amazing, talented, and very caring dentist. He is my daughter's number one oral hygiene cheerleader and she loves him! I wouldn't take her anywhere else.

Dr. Burdo, I cannot say enough good things about him and my experiences at his office. He is cool, charismatic and easy going. He is supported by his wonderful staff beginning with the front desk, as Margaret greets you with her warm spirit each visit. I will and currently do, recommend those I know to Dr. Burdo. Keep up the great work...the entire team!!! Chris Sain Jr.

We have known Dr Burdo for longer than I care to admit... honestly over 30 years, when he was an undergraduate in college. We recommend him to all of our friends and co-workers. Yes he is that good. He pays attention to each patient and makes you feel important to him. His staff is exceptional. They all know us and ask about the family when we are there. It is not just about your dental health which they take care excellent care of you but they care about making you feel comfortable.

My favorite dentist I have ever been to! Always puts a smile on my face with this outgoing, caring, and friendly attitude. He and his staff never fail to help my family and I with all out dental needs. I would recommend him to everyone!
in Grand Rapids MI |
I was honest with the staff about my anxiety surrounding the dentist. They were nice on the first appointment, but my last appointment (ever) I ended up crying as Dr. Burdo was so harsh with me. I then went three years without going to the dentist because my anxiety was higher than ever! I don't recommend this office at all.
