IT’S SO GREAT TO GET UP each day, go to work, and be part of something great—a practice that truly cares about our patients. We love helping people achieve beautiful smiles. Most importantly, we value the relationships we build with you—and with other team members.
That’s why we’re so grateful for the person who makes it all possible, Dr. Burke.
Why We Love Dr. Burke:
As a little surprise to Dr. Burke we wanted to show our appreciation! We asked team members to comment with a favorite memory about Dr. Burke, or something about why they love working with our fearless leader! And it’s no surprise to us that the words “kind” and “generous” and “funny” were used repeatedly.
Amy: “What I love most about Dr. Burke is his special talent to connect with his diverse patient clientele. From the young to the old, he has a special way of educating, communicating, and entertaining patients of all ages!”
“He makes it enjoyable to come to work every day because you know you’re going to laugh all day!
Amber, “I love how compassionate Dr. Burke is about his patients and team. He is always positive!”
Holly: “Where do I start? Dr. Burke is one of the most caring employers I’ve ever met! He takes very good care of all his team and is so generous. He loves to make people laugh! It’s never a dull moment at work!”
Chelsea really appreciates his fun spirit and friendly demeanor.
Kathy: “I have worked for him for 23 years……he has gone above and beyond professionally for me and his entire staff!”
And Mary loves his free-spirited personality and genuine kindness toward everyone.
Over and over again, his team and patients commented on his great sense of humor. When asked to share their favorite memories of him, we heard some hilarious stories!
Amy told us of the time he accidentally set his Christmas gift on fire!
Stacey really enjoys making the zany videos with him!! “He is a true creative genius”. Dr. Burke’s videos are infamous!
Amber loves to see him dressing up in crazy costumes. You never know what he will show up wearing for ANY event.
“My favorite memory is hanging out the window of a moving SUV, video recording him in the Bite-Mobile for the Rolling B.O. video!”
Chelsea: “My first year working here, we had an elderly patient come in with a broken retainer. She said, “My bottom has a crack in it.’ Dr. Burke responded with, ‘Mine does too!’ Dr. Burke and I started cracking up….”
“When a balloon popped during our removal party and he yelled out, “Clean pair of shorts at a Chair 1!’
Kathy shared a hilarious story of when she first started working with Dr. Burke. She was mixing up impression material and it flew across the room and landed, SPLAT, on Dr. Burke’s back while he was treating a patient. She was mortified! He looked over his shoulder and went right back to the patient. Meanwhile, Kathy had to wait until it dried before she peeled it off of his shirt, while trying not to laugh (or CRY!).
We ALL really appreciate his generosity to all of us and to the community. He loves giving back and is passionate in his commitment to help others.
It’s true….our team loves our Dr. Burke! He has created an atmosphere of making us feel like family….and it extends to our patients and their families as well. As Holly says’ “God knew what he was doing when he brought him into our lives”.
Thanks for all you do, Dr. Burke!
