Frequently-asked Questions

Why doesn't my regular dentist perform my surgery?

Every dentist in Texas is licensed to perform all types of dentistry. Most dentists choose to limit their practices to certain phases of dentistry. Your dentist has chosen to refer patients to another dentist for the surgical care that they require.

Why Dr. Burden?

Your dentist knows that Dr. Burden has the surgical skills and abilities to provide you with the high quality services you deserve. Dr. Burden's practice is designed to provide such surgical services to you in your own dentist's office in which you are already familiar and comfortable.
