It is our pleasure to welcome you to our practice. We can say “our” practice because in our office the doctor, orthodontic assistants and office personnel work together toward a common goal – high quality orthodontics. Like a family, our desire is to treat every patient the way we would like to be treated: with the finest technical skill and the warmest personal care.
Our passion is creating beautiful smiles! We are also committed to seeing each patient at his or her appointed time, and completing your beautiful smile by the estimated completion date.
Our patients come to us because they know that we take great pride in meeting their needs: whether they are children, teens, or adults. We work very closely with your family dentist so we can better provide the treatment that is best for you. Orthodontic treatment can vary widely as we feel it is important to consider such factors as age, position of the teeth, jaw structure and facial esthetics. One person might need a single tooth realigned, while another might require a two year plan to promote harmonious jaw growth. In severe cases, tooth alignment along with possible surgery may be necessary in order to achieve a correct occlusion.
While orthodontics is practiced by many, few are “board certified”. Board certification indicates that, following the 5 year eligibility period, the specialist passed a rigorous examination in which actual orthodontic cases were evaluated by an expert panel of fellow orthodontists. Dr. Burkland became board certified in 1978 and has become well known and respected by his peers worldwide. Dr. Burkland makes certain that treatment is aimed at long term perfection. Teeth straightened too quickly are prone to shift out of alignment after a few years, and dental roots may be damaged. Because we believe that investing in your dental health today means that you should enjoy it for many tomorrows, we provide conscientious, scrupulous care that creates a lifetime of beautiful smiles!
Since orthodontic treatment is spread out over a period of 6-24 months, we want to make sure that your time in our office is enjoyable. We have ongoing contests for all ages and some of these are based on good cooperation, others are just for fun. We feel it is important to stress excellent compliance in order to achieve the very best results in the shortest period of time.
We also pride ourselves on our ability to “run on time”. Simply stated, we take every step we can to insure that we bring our patients back at their scheduled time and finish each appointment on time. We know our families are busy and we respect their time commitment to our office.
