They were so friendly and my daughter loved them! They made sure I understood everything before doing any work. I really felt like they loved my girl and wanted to make her comfortable. I would recommend them to everyone!- Heather H.
Love Burg!! The dentists are fantastic, able to explain exactly what is needed and why. And they talk to my boys, instead of only to me; they include then kids in the decisions. Very patient and friendly. Love the front desk staff, too.- Jessica K.
What a great experience! My son has been terrified of going to the dentist. The staff was so kind and engaging that he didn’t even bat an eye. They were able to get more done with no tears then the past three dental offices we went to.- Sarah P.
We love Burg Children’s Dentistry! The staff is so kind and patient and they are so gentle with the kids. My daughter is four and loves going to the dentist because they make it so fun and comfortable. I’m grateful we live close to such a great dental office!- Claire M.

Amazing staff. From the receptionist to the doctor himself. Very patient with my fifteen month old who wouldn’t lay down to me filling out my paperwork with a newborn in tow. Our family will be returning for sure!- Jon & Melissa L.
The staff is so great with my kids. On the way for his visit he says, “I LOVE going to the dentist!” Which is funny considering how much I dread it! Dr Nielsen is so nice and takes the time to explain everything he sees.- Christina T.
