Finding a dentist is relatively easy. Finding one who is extremely well-educated with extensive training is a bit more challenging. Finding that dentist who combines an education, training, and experience with a friendly personality is as simple as calling Dr. Afroz Burges.
Born in Bombay, India, and then raised in New York, Dr. Burges later returned to India with her family and received a Bachelor of Dental Surgery there. As an adult, she wanted to study biotechnology and, in researching the best school, she found the University of Texas at San Antonio, where she obtained her master’s degree. She would go on to perform research at University of Texas Medical School in Houston for several years and then ultimately obtain her Doctor of Dental Surgery at University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston. “I realized I preferred working with people over working in a lab,” Dr. Burges said. “Dentistry is my true passion.”
Dr. Burges has been in practice since 1996 and earned her prestigious Fellowship from the Academy of General Dentistry, which very few dentists receive. It is a testament to her commitment to continuing education and keeping up with the latest advancements in dentistry. For the past 17 years, she has changed the lives of her dental patients at her two Pearland offices by offering a wide range of services to children and adults.
“I have always been interested in medicine and enjoy working with my hands,” Dr. Burges said. “With dentistry, I can do both while improving my patients’ smiles and their health—even patients with challenging issues.” As a mother of two, Dr. Burges is also extremely patient and calming for young patients or anxious adults who require a little more time to get comfortable. “I also offer nitrous oxide and conscious sedation for any patient who’s a bit fearful.”
Dr. Burges provides many services you might not expect from a family dentist such as root canals, implant dentistry and cosmetic treatments including orthodontics. “Because I offer orthodontic care, I’m able to keep a close eye on children’s mouths as they grow and provide treatments that can shorten their time in braces or help them avoid getting them at all.”
This inclusive approach to care has made Dr. Burges very popular with her Pearland community. In fact, as patient Laurie C. shared: “You will immediately be impressed by both her staff and the office environment. Before your appointment, you can sit down, and enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee, tea or bottled water at her beverage bar. She has an area in the waiting room with a video game player for the kids. Although the office environment is very calming, I think the two important things you should consider when choosing a dentist are both the quality of service and the ‘bedside manner’ of the dentist. Dr. Burges has provided our family with excellent general dental services as well as orthodontic treatments for all three of my children. She has a very calm manner which immediately puts you at ease and is great with both children and adults. I highly recommend her practice for everyone in your family.”
Trust Dr. Afroz Burges for a full line of dental services including:
- cosmetic dentistry—veneers, whitening, bonding, inlays and onlays
- dental implants
- endodontics—root canals
- oral surgery—extractions including wisdom teeth and bone grafting
- orthodontics—Invisalign, clear braces, traditional braces and night guards
- pediatric—routine care, sealants and mouth guards
- periodontics—bone grafting, frenectomy, and more
- restorations—dentures, crown, bridge and bonding
Both locations feature state-of-the-art technology for the highest quality dental care available. “It is one of our top priorities to protect the well-being of our valued patients,” Dr. Burges said. For this reason, their offices meet and surpass all OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and CDC (U.S. Center for Disease Control) standards. “We are confident that you will feel right at home in our office as we welcome all patients as if they were family.”
Dr. Burges’ dental team will file most dental insurances for you and, if you self-pay, offer you options for payments to make it easier for you to get treatment when you need it. “We see patients who put off coming to the dentist because of the cost,” Dr. Burges said. “But often, the sooner we treat your concerns, the less work will be required to make you healthy again, which in the long run saves you money while keeping you healthy. So we urge you to come in sooner than later.”
Dr. Burges speaks English, Hindi and Urdu and has Spanish-speaking team members.
