As a lifelong Brandon resident (and graduate of Brandon High School–GO BULLDOGS!), Dr. Burke values the relationships she builds with each patient who sits in her chair. Knowing from a young age she wanted to pursue dentistry, Dr. Burke always took her education seriously. She graduated as the salutatorian of her high school class and Magna Cum Laude from Mississippi College with a degree in Biology. Next, she attended dental school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, completing her DMD degree in 2012.
Dr. Burke is proud to be a member of the Mississippi Dental Association, American Dental Association, Mississippi Association for Women Dentists, the Academy of Gp Orthodontics, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Members of the Brandon community know Dr. Burke for the time she takes to inform and care for her patients—and how highly she values her hometown. She’s thrilled to bring a comprehensive, caring approach to dentistry with her own practice. In her spare time, Dr. Burke enjoys spending time with her husband and children, watching Ole Miss sports, and crossing items off her latest “to do” list.
Our dedicated staff is here for you whenever you need, whether it’s an after-hours emergency, an insurance question, or anything else you might be wondering. Here are the friendly faces you’ll get to know at Burke Dental Group, ready to serve you with a smile!
