While he was studying psychology at Temple University, Dr. Burkitt learned how rewarding it can be to help people in need and make them smile. With a natural inclination for making people laugh and putting them at ease, Dr. Burkitt realized how well-suited he was for a career in dentistry. Since earning his DMD at the Kornberg School of Dentistry, Dr. Burkitt has worked with thousands of patients, changing their lives one smile at a time.
Dr. Burkitt and his family have been in the Roanoke area for 8 years and love the community. Now that he is opening up his own practice here in Roanoke, he is excited to offer individualized dental care for every patient. Dr. Burkitt treats everyone who walks through our door as if they were family, and he always makes sure that you and your family members fully understand the diagnosis and treatment plan. For Dr. Burkitt, dentistry is more than just diagnosis and treatment. Quality dental care involves developing meaningful relationships with the families he cares for and bonding over healthy, beautiful smiles.
When he isn't at the practice Dr. Burkitt enjoys writing, hiking, and cooking for family and friends. His favorite thing to do, though is to spend time with his wife Ashley and daughter Eloise.
