Meet Erik R. Burke DDS
“I love the fact that as a dentist, I can have an impact on someone’s health and frankly, their perception on life through their smile.
My utmost concern is for my patients to have a positive and painless experience in my care.
I am invested in people and I am truly blessed to be able to work with my hands and have countless interactions with amazing people every day.” – Erik R. Burke DDS GPR
