Get to know Dr. Elliot Burns, DDS

Dr. Elliott Burns grew up in Kernersville, North Carolina. During his younger years, Dr. Burns wouldn’t have pictured himself as a practicing dentist. He didn’t know that years later, he would follow in his father’s footsteps to become a dentist. When asked how he came to pursue dentistry as an occupation, Dr. Burns said that it’s upon taking a job placement test in High School that he decided to give it another thought.


Today, he cannot imagine of a more wonderful profession that allows one to make significant impacts on individuals. He was involved in organizations that advanced the interests and welfare of dental students during his dental school years. He enjoys the political side of dentistry even to this day. Dr. Burns feels truly blessed to have had the opportunity to be part of a profession that allows him to help people. He is proud to have created and maintained so many beautiful smiles since he started working in the wonderful community of Charlotte. His goal is to have a long and fruitful career delivering the highest quality of care to his patients.
