“I’m excited to partner with an organization that provides high-quality patient care and is committed to continuing to improve,” said Dr. Burr. “Early in my career I recognized that a supported model of dentistry was the future of the industry. I have partnered in several large practices and developed a passion for the business and operations side of dentistry.”
Dr. Burr most recently served as a regional clinical director for Pacific Dental Services in Utah, where he helped revitalize the clinical culture of the region. His work led to growth of existing practices and new practice additions, doubling the number of dentists and hygienists and expanding the scope of treatments offered.
