About Your Dentist

Richard Burton, DMD

Life & Hobbies

Born and raised in New Jersey, Dr. Burton practiced dentistry there until his recent move to North Carolina. Dr. Burton loves to give back to his community and volunteer. He has previously provided volunteer dental care to U.S. military reserves before their deployments.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Burton has two wonderful sons and four grandchildren under the age of six. He is a lifelong golf player which he says keeps him humble.
