Dr. BurnellDr. David T. Burnell

Dr. Burnell first attended Michigan State University and the proceeded to graduate from the University Of Michigan School Of Dentistry in 1983. He began practicing in Dearborn, MI prior to settling in Hamburg full time in 1985. Over the past 31 years, he has continually pursued advanced studies in Laser Dentistry. Most exciting is the European advanced studies he has attended over the years with the World Clinical Laser Institute (WCLI). He was awarded with his Fellowship in Laser Dentistry from WCLI. Only a small percentage of dentists in the world achieve this level. Laser technology allows Dr. Burnell to perform dental procedures daily without a drill or the "dreaded shot" in many cases. In 2007, Dr. Burnell became involved with a core group of Dentists to spearhead the effort to open a non-profit Dental Clinic for patients with limited access to dental care. The dream became a reality in September 2008. Dr. Burnell continues to evaluate and implement new technologies as they become available to benefit his patient care.
