Patient Concerns

Patient Education

We find that patients are more comfortable when they know what to expect at every step of a proposed treatment. Dr. Burris takes the time to address your individual dental concerns and questions.

Our goal is that you are completely informed concerning your condition and any treatment that will be performed.

Patient Safety

We adhere to the highest professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control, going well beyond standard safety requirements. Our staff regularly attend safety seminars and are quite knowledgeable on the latest techniques.


We know that preventing the spread of infectious disease is critical and have spared no expense in meeting and exceeding all of the guidelines set by OSHA, the ADA, the CDC and the State of Kansas.


Patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. valvular heart conditions, artificial joints) may need to pre-medicate with antibiotics before certain treatments. We do this with your safety in mind. Please inform us if you have a condition that might require pre-medication.
