Ever since she can remember, Dr Burton has loved working with her hands and creating art. She also discovered through her years of school that she really enjoys science a lot as well. Its systematic, practical nature was appealing to her as well as the many applications it has in everyday life. When it comes down to it, dentistry is the perfect blend of the artistic and scientific worlds. Every day at the dental office, she gets to create a true piece of artwork that will be featured in someone’s smile for years to come!
