Braces + Dentistry for Children and Teens

Board Certified Specialists

Since founding Burleson Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry in 2006, over 3,000 orthodontists have traveled to Kansas City from 35 countries to learn from Dr. Dustin Burleson’s vision to change lives, advance the profession of orthodontics, and support our communities. At last count, the Burleson Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry offices have over 30,000 satisfied patients, traveling from cities as far away as Chicago, New York, and San Francisco to be treated by one of our certified orthodontic specialists.

Dr. Burleson is the author of two Amazon best-selling consumer books, Stop Hiding Your Smile! and The Consumer’s Guide to Invisalign. As a two-time Inc. 500 | 5000 honoree recognized for building one of the fastest-growing orthodontic specialty practices in North America, he was also awarded the American Dental Association’s prestigious Golden Apple Award in 2014 and the Missouri Dental Association’s Outstanding Dental Leadership award in the same year.

Dr. Burleson writes five professional newsletters monthly, is the director of the Leo H. Rheam Foundation for Cleft & Craniofacial Orthodontics, teaches at both Children’s Mercy Hospital and the UMKC School of Dentistry, and operates a large multi-clinic orthodontic and pediatric dental practice in Kansas City, Missouri.

He has been invited to speak throughout the world and has shared the stage with celebrities and athletes who mirror his passion to help more people live healthier happier lives. He provides over $1 million in free orthodontic care to cleft lip and palate children each year.

Dr. Burleson’s practices have worked with the prestigious Disney Institute and Ritz Carlton to bring the same “wow” experience to the smiles of all our patients. Asked what makes his practice different, he quickly replied with a warm smile, “It’s our people, our culture, and our commitment to do whatever it takes to serve the best interests of our patients and their families,” even if that means referring them to a cheaper option in town or to one of our nonprofit foundations when parents are unable to afford treatment at a Burleson facility.
