Ryan Burke, DDS, MS
Meet Bergen County Dentist, Dr. Burke
Dr. Ryan Burke loves creating beautiful smiles. He started out his career as a computer programmer and, although he enjoyed the problem-solving aspect of it, Dr. Burke felt like it was not the career for him. “In addition to being drawn to health care, I wanted to create and work with my hands.” While doing his premed studies, he began to check out dentistry and discovered it was just what he was looking for.
Attaining a Dental Education
After earning a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from St. Peter’s College in 2000, Dr. Burke went on to attain the following:
- Certificate of Premedical Science (Columbia University) in 2004
- Doctor of Dental Surgery (Columbia University) in 2009
- Master of Science in Prosthodontics (Columbia University) in 2012
To stay abreast of the latest in prosthodontics, Dr. Burke is constantly taking continuing education courses. These include ones in Implant Dentistry, Ceramics, and Technology in Dentistry.
Outside the Practice
When he’s not at the practice restoring the smiles of his patients, Dr. Burke enjoys spending time with his wife and five sons. He also plays and coaches ice hockey for the Montclair Blues Hockey Club.
