About Heather K. Burch, DMD, MS

Dr. Heather Burch was born in Tallahassee. She grew up loving the Noles and is an avid sports fan. Her earliest memories include fireworks at Tom Brown Park, sitting on the wooden bleachers in the end zone in Doak Campbell Stadium and Easter lunch and pictures at Maclay Gardens. She has loved the people and the town of Tallahassee her whole life. Her dream of having an orthodontic practice in Tallahassee was realized in 2003 and she has been providing area families with exceptional orthodontic care since then.

Dr. Burch completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Florida and was blessed to be accepted and graduate from the University Of Florida College Of Dentistry. She then completed a three-year residency and earned her Master’s degree and Certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Florida as well. During her residency, her research included the study of the normal development of the palate and what might lead to the development of cleft lip and palate.

Dr. Burch feels it is important to stay on the cutting edge of orthodontics. She maintains her membership in the American Association of Orthodontics and American Dental Association. She has been active on the local dental board including being on the board for 5 years and becoming President in 2008-2009. She attends many hours of continuing education each year to make certain she is providing the latest and best care for her patients.

One of the most important things to Dr. Burch is giving back to her community. Dr. Burch has given lectures to the local hygiene association concerning the growth of the jaws, to local schools on oral hygiene and the area Rotary Club on the early detection of oral cancer. Additionally, she has served on the board of Sunrise Rotary and was president in 2010-11. She is also on the Foundation Board for Chipola College and serves on the board for the Pregnancy Help and Information Center. She has served on the committee for Relay for Life. She also gives back to area school by being a partner in excellence with many area middle and high schools. She sponsors the TOP Award at area middle schools, which is given to a deserving eighth grader each nine weeks for excellence in school and giving back to the community. She has won the Ethics in Business Award given by area Rotary clubs, presented to her by Bob Graham. She has won the Golden Ace Award given to area professionals that exemplify leadership, are well rounded and give back to their community. Just like her practice, Dr. Burch believes the most important part of life is building relationships and helping each other.

Dr. Burch met and married her wonderful husband, Allen over twenty years ago when they were both students studying at Chipola College. Allen is the Principal at Lincoln High School. Together they have two beautiful children, Emma and Zachary.
