Meet Our Leadership Team in Sun City, Arizona
Carrie – Chief Operations Officer
I have been working in the dental industry for 20 years and at Burns Dentistry almost 10 years. I have an associates degree in Dental Assisting, x-ray certification and phlebotomy certification. Sun City dentistry has always been a passion for me since the beginning. I love what I do, helping change the lives of our patients and achieve the smile of their dreams.
The Burns Dentistry team is a special group that strives for excellence in everything that they do – and I love being a part of that. I truly enjoying being part of something bigger than myself. As the Chief Operations Officer, I oversee all departments and the continuing growth here at Burns Dentistry. What that means for the patient is that I ensure perfection for each patient that we take on. When I am not helping our patients and staff, I enjoy shopping, going to the movies and spending quality time with family and friends.
Amy – Clinical Director
I have worked in the dental industry for more than 16 years, and have had the wonderful opportunity of being at Burns Dentistry for the past two years. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Western New Mexico University, where I attended college on a Softball Scholarship. Being a dental care provider has always been a passion of mine, so after I graduated college I started my career as a dental assistant. I loved every minute of being a dental assistant, and I haven’t looked back.
My favorite part about what I do at Burns Dentistry is working with patients and building relationships. I’m lucky to have a rewarding job where I can help patients stay healthy and achieve the smile they have always wanted, and deserved. Joining the team at Burns Dentistry has been a great experience. I love the positive atmosphere, team focused environment, and always being challenged to grow both personally and professionally. I can honestly say that the dentist office is a place that I love to go to every day. When I’m not at work, I love hiking, shopping, and spending lots of time with my family.
