“I couldn’t begin to remember how many dentists there were due to education, moves, etc. I do know that most of them stated that my mouth was a challenge. When I got Dr. Burgiss to be my dentist, he knew ahead of time that there was lots to be done in my mouth, and he did it. No one has ever numbed my gums as efficiently as he does. He has changed my looks and bite considerably for the better. To make things even better, the staff in his office is outstanding. They are cheerful and competent people who are fun to be around. To conclude my remarks, I may have to drive a little to get to his office but it is worth every mile.”- B.E.
“When our family goes to see Dr. Burgiss it’s not like going to see “the dentist” it’s like a continuation of our family. When you walk in the door right away there is a friendly face with a caring smile to welcome you. Our family trusts Dr. Burgiss and his staff. We know that his work is always going to be the best quality because unlike other dentists that we have been to, there is not an attitude of “let’s get it done.” Instead, Dr. Burgiss has the attitude of “let’s get it right!” Our family constantly recommends Dr. Burgiss because we want other people to know that we found a dentist who is so good, dedicated, diligent, and caring, that we actually look forward to going to the dentist.”- M.

“You and Your staff are amazing. When I walk in the door, it is like going into another world. The office bubbles with enthusiasm for me and the incredibly warm welcome is always present. The place pulsates with care and love for me. Always I am greeted with the most important person in the world. The staff expresses interest in my life and celebrates with me any good little thing going in my favor. All of you are like cheerleaders in my life. The music you have filtered through the office is always a reminder of who and what truly matters in this life. With all of this surrounding me during a treatment, how could I ever dread coming to a “dentist’s office”. You offer a “time out” from the ordinary and restoration in me far beyond my dental health”- S.B.
“Dr. Burgiss has been my dentist for the past ten years and he and his staff have seen me through many procedures from cleanings to replacement of old restorations and even TMJ. Without exception, every visit has been a pleasant experience. I observed Dr. Burgiss’ office for a year as their UPS delivery person before becoming his patient. During this time, I marveled at the harmonious atmosphere there. Now, many years later, after many dental procedures, I still marvel at the friendly and professional way I am treated on each and every visit. Never, not even once, have I wished for anything different from the results I received.”- C.
