Hope everyone’s summer is off to a great start!
I just returned from a wonderful family vacation and received the news that I have been named 2017 Top Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Top Dentist by 5280 Magazine.
This is a tremendous honor. I’m thankful for the recognition, I’m thankful for the opportunity to serve the community and I’m thankful for all my great colleagues.
While this is a great individual award, this award is really about Kristin, Andi, Lauren, Rosanna, Linda, Bobbi, Kayla, Caitlin, Chelsea, Melanie, Janet, Jessica and Miriam.
When the doors opened at 300 East 128th Avenue on September 12, 2006, my vision consisted of two promises to the community: 1) A state-of-the-art facility to handle all oral and maxillofacial needs and 2) a team of dedicated, talented and hard-working individuals that embrace the privilege of providing care to the community.
While the facility assessment is subjective in nature, there is no denying the professionalism, skill, compassion and hard work of the Burnham Oral Surgery Team.
From day-to-day operations to patient follow-up, each Team member attacks the task at hand with the same mindset – provide personalized dental care, comfort and service.
It’s a Team effort here and I’m so proud that this Team has been recognized by 5280.
I would be remiss if I didn’t include a quick thank you to Dr. Anne Stearns. Since joining the practice in March, she has hit the ground running, embraced the culture and allowed me to take vacation =).
Thank you again to the Burnham Oral Surgery Team. You all are the reason for the success of this practice. I became an oral surgeon for one reason: to help people.
I never imagined this would include being surrounded by an amazing and talented group of individuals… The Burnham Oral Surgery Team.
