We Have One Priority: You
Meet Our Doctors
Dr. Michael Burnham became an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for one reason: to help people. He has carefully created his state-of-the-art oral surgery practice to provide patients with the most exceptional, comfortable and caring oral surgery possible. He has hand selected his team to deliver the quality and compassion that he believes every patient deserves. Working together, they attempt to improve the lives of every person with whom they have the privilege to interact.
To Dr. Burnham and his team, oral surgery is more than a profession, it’s their purpose. In this warm, welcoming environment, patients feel safe and confident. They know they are in good hands.
Dr. Burnham grew up in the Southwest in the Four Corners area and graduated from Loma Linda School of Dentistry. He obtained his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas where he also completed a 6-year residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Dr. Burnham shares his love of the field with other dental professionals as the director for the 5280 Study Club and the Phoenix Study Club. These clubs provide continuing education for Dr. Burnham and his colleagues.
Dr. Burnham and his team volunteer for the Colorado Mission of Mercy (COMOM), a large-scale dental clinic that is held annually in a Colorado community. The COMOM mission is to provide quality dental services, at no cost, to individuals of all ages who cannot afford and access dental care; eliminating dental pain, promoting oral health, creating smiles, and providing oral health education.
In his spare time, Dr. Burnham enjoys skiing with his family and being involved in his children’s activities.
Dr. Anne Stearns joins Burnham Oral Surgery after spending the 2016 year at Summit Oral & Implant Surgery in Loveland where she practiced all aspects of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery including dental alveolar surgery, implant surgery, bone grafting, trauma, oral pathology, temporomandibular joint surgery and orthognathic surgery.
Hailing from Cheyenne, Wyo., Dr. Stearns has had a passion for medicine since watching episodes of St. Elsewhere and ER. Her love for oral surgery began in high school while working for an oral surgeon. She is happy to be back in the Front Range close to family after completing her training.
In addition to receiving her Board Certification in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in the spring of 2016, Dr. Stearns training includes:
- 2003 B.S., Creighton University

Dr. Stearns is excited to be a part of Burnham Oral Surgery and expand on the exceptional patient care provided by Dr. Burnham and his team.
