Ben Burris, DDS, MDS

None can deny that Dr. Burris continues to change the conversation in dentistry – especially in orthodontics.

Burris is a doer with an uncanny eye for finding opportunities to improve and an unflinching resolve to pursue and implement positive change above all else. Dr. Burris graduated from The Citadel, in Charleston, SC, with a BS in Biology prior to receiving his DDS from the University of Tennessee – Health Science Center’s College of Dentistry in 2001 where he then completed his orthodontic residency and received his MDS in 2004.

As a clinical professor at Roseman University (, owner of one of the largest practices in No rth America, creator of Smile for a Lifetime Foundation (, co-owner of The Progressive Orthodontist magazine and Study Group (, key opinion leader for Dentsply GAC, and business mentor for the newly introduced Young-Docs resident and new ortho study group, Ben brings unparalleled perspective to the conversation. More than anything, Ben enjoys teaching the business of running a practice and providing realworld tips on managing a successful dental business. He loves discussing hot topics with those who agree as well as those who disagree with his point of view. He’s always up for intelligent conversation and respectful debate.
