Being a dentist is now the dream of my son because of the great experiences he is having with Burg Pediatric Dentistry. He said he wants to take care of the kids teeth too. He feels like the clinic is a playground and he doesn't want to

Don't be fooled by this quack's awesome superhero ads, you'll need a superhero to save you from the amount of crookedness that goes on with Dr. Burg. There were three major problems with this slick little operation that he has running. First of all, he will take you for all he can get. Our four-year-old's "plan" looked like instructions on how to replace the human jaw piece by piece. An honest dentist will tell you when you have a cavity that isn't necessarily bad enough to merit attention, yet Dr. Burg wanted to drill and fill every single thing he could get away with, and no minor cavities were even brought up. The second problem was perhaps not without an upside, and that is that Dr. Burg does not do his own work. He sends you off to a Surgical Center on the west side to have the actual work done. That's right, I said Surgical Center. Which leads to the third, and most uproarious problem with his business practices. Nowhere in his colorful ads does he tell you that in order to use his services you will be required to put your kid under surgical anesthesia. Even for a basic cavity, which was as bad as our son's issues supposedly were (although at this point I'd have to get a second opinion to know if he even has any), you will have to sign a waiver protecting them in case your kid dies while having a cavity fixed. Red flag, anyone? And you should see the waiver they use too, it tries as much as possible to muddle the fact that anesthesia can, in fact, kill you. Now I'm not ignorant, I've had surgeries, and have seen and been in situations where anesthesia makes sense, but to fill a cavity? The potential risks of anesthesia far outweigh the risks of a kid biting a drill or something negligible like that. I couldn't consider myself a good parent and unnecessarily place my son in a life threatening situation,however remote, for a filling. The simple fact is that anesthesia is far from the only option unless you work with Burg. The rising trend of using anesthesia to drill kids cavities is gross irresponsibility and recklessness, and I'm sure that it's no coincidence that it costs more as well. And beyond that, do the math, the anesthesia is basically there to make it so that they don't have to try as hard with kids, and yet this dangerous abuse of anesthesia is mandatory here. Do yourself a favor and leave Dr. Burg alone in whatever world of justification and lunacy he's in. Or better yet, I feel like getting people to call and make several appointments each to fill up their schedule, and then not show up, I'm not usually this mean, but this dangerous bait-and-switch operation needs a taste of it's own anesthesia.

Truly avoid this practice! The dentist is ok but not nearly good enough to have to put up with his horrible support staff. I went there for my son's first dental visit - again the dentist was ok but nothing spectacular in my 3 minute visit. Apparently there was a very, very small fee not paid by my insurance company. I got a call almost a full year after my visit treating me like a leper over $13. I was put off because I hadn't heard anything from them for a full year, then get a call as if I've stolen something. I asked for documentation and again was argued with. Told them they were about to lose a paitent over their treatment of me to which the little girl said "well you haven't come here in a year anyway".... last time I checked, yearly visits were the norm for a 2 year old. And it's nice to know they care about their patients and community. A simple "sorry we overlooked contacting you" would have sufficed. As I was conveying this to my co-workers, no less than 4 of them said they had the same experience. I work too hard and long to fight with anybody whom I'm paying to care for my son!
I wonder if this dentist knows how much money his office staff is costing him.

My sons have been seeing Dr. Burg for quite some time. We really like him. I did have an occasion one time in which I requested Dr. Burg and he was seen by Dr. Boren. I didn't like him hear as well as Dr. Burg, so I have insisted that we always see Dr. Burg.

We have only been twice but have received excellent care. They were on time and very accomodating. The only thing I don't like is you don't get to choose which dr your child sees. We saw Dr. Boren when we had requested Dr. Burg, but that was just fine because he was great.

Pros: Cute, kid friendly office, very kind staff
