Meet The Burke Dental Staff
At Burke Dental, we are dedicated to our community and patient family. We will greet you with a smile, treat you like family, and do everything in our power to help you establish and maintain your oral health. We invite you to take a moment to learn a bit about each of our team members. Our care coordinators take extra measures to help you feel informed and prepared prior to, during, and after your appointment. They are always available to answer your questions and to help you with any challenging parts of the overall process. Each of our hygienists is a licensed, Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) with current certifications and credentials. They are constantly maintaining their knowledge and skills base through continuing education, both theoretical and hands-on. Our chairside assistants are also well-trained and certified and undergo ongoing training and education.
