As an Arizona native, Dr. Burns’ heart has always been tied to the Valley of the Sun. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences from Arizona State University before going to dental school. He is still an avid Sun Devil fan and can often be found supporting the Sun Devils at any athletic event. Go Devils!! He graduated from Indiana University School of Dentistry and loved his time in the Midwest. After graduation, he was thrilled to return to warm weather and lots of sunshine and no shoveling snow. Dr. Burns is married to his beautiful wife, Michaela, and they have three wonderful children they adore. They love hiking, swimming and enjoy the Arizona outdoors. He also enjoys good food and never passes up a great dessert.
