Dr. Heather Burns
Dr. Heather Burns was born in Bethlehem, PA. After graduating from LeHigh University, she then went on to attend dental school at Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry.
Dr. Burns was influenced by both her mother and older sister, both of whom are in the medical field as a Nurse Practitioner and Orthodontist respectively. During her pediatric dental residency, Dr. Burns was chosen to serve as chief resident, an honor which she accepted with great pride and joy.
When asked what her favorite part of being a pediatric dentist is, Dr. Burns said “Being able to work with children and their families to help them have healthy smiles. I wanted to provide a friendly environment for children to learn that going to the dentist can be fun.”
Out of the office, Dr. Burns has many hobbies and causes that she cares about deeply. First and foremost, she loves spending time with her niece and nephew. In fact, she’s grown quite fond of Spiderman, as she often reads Spider Man stories to her 5 year old nephew.
In addition to family, she has also participated in outreach trips to Mexico, Nicaragua, and Jamaica to provide free dental care to people that do not have regular access to such services.
She also enjoys running, swimming, and other healthy outdoor activities.
