From Traverse City, Michigan. Dr. Burke graduated from Traverse City Central HS and then went on to receive his Bachelor’s of Science degree from Colgate University (aptly named for the education of a Dentist!). An accomplished All-State Track & Football athlete, his hands earned him a football scholarship at Colgate where he was a 4-year letter winner and two-time All-Patriot League Wide Receiver.
Dr. Burke received his Doctorate from the University of Detroit-Mercy and completed an intensive, one-year General Practice Residency at the University of California, San Francisco. During his residency, Dr. Burke received extensive training in Dental Implants, Oral Surgery, TMJ Disorders, Sleep Apnea, and managing severely medically-compromised patients. He then worked in private practice in San Francisco where he furthered his experience and education by completing numerous continuing education courses in Cosmetic Dentistry, Veneers, Root Canal Therapy, as well as becoming an Invisalign Certified Provider and a Fellow of The California Implant Institute. After honing his skills, he returned home to Northern Michigan to build his dream practice!
When Dr. Burke is not caring for his patients, he enjoys the outdoors, mentoring football & track athletes, playing guitar, paddleboarding, travelling, beach volleyball, snowboarding, and spending time with his family and friends.
