Dr. Paul Burkey is celebrating 30 years of making great smiles in Vernon Hills!


 In 1985 Dr. Burkey purchased Dr. Norman Garn's part time orthodontic practice located in the Metro Square One Professional Building. After outgrowing that space in 1994, Dr. Burkey built his current office at 290 Center Drive, where he practices orthodontics for children and adults overlooking the wetlands and woods of the Cuneo estate property. 

 On September 10, 2015, Dr. Burkey threw a "Back to the 80's" party under a huge tent in the backyard of his office to celebrate. Patients and colleagues enjoyed food, Rubik’s cube challenges, yard games, 80's music, and fun prizes. They had a vintage Pac-man game on hand for people to play amid the 80’s décor, and Dr. Burkey even wore a mullet for the occasion!

 Dr. Burkey would like to thank his patients and professional colleagues for their confidence and trust, and he looks forward to providing many more years of individualized orthodontic care for the community. 



This is a picture of Richard Nice, his girls, and Dr. Burkey. What is really cool is that Richard was an adolescent patient of

Dr. Burkey when he bought the practice 30 yeas ago, and now he is bringing his daughter Avery to him as a patient!




Last fall Dr. Burkey celebrated 30 years in practice!
