Spencer Burnham, DMD
I love dentistry because it allows me to do something meaningful and rewarding as a career. I enjoy helping people get out of pain, restoring confidence in their smiles, and the opportunity to build long term relationship with the patients who trust me with their care. For me, dentistry is about helping people. This was recognized by my clinical faculty in dental school when I was given the Patient Centered Care Award at graduation.

Education and Continuing Education
I studied Business and Hospitality Management at BYU-Hawaii and graduated with a double major in 2004. In 2010, after six years in various sales capacities, I enrolled at the University of Utah as a Biology major in preparation for Dental School. I was admitted to Roseman University of Health Sciences in 2012 and graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2016.

One of the reasons I was drawn to dentistry is because the profession demands a lifetime of learning. I am a member of the Southern Oregon Dental Society, the Oregon Dental Association, the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry and the Academy of LDS Dentists. I look forward to continuing my professional development through these associations.

Family Life
I grew up in Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, a small agricultural town about four hours east of Vancouver. I fell in love with Medford when looking for a place to settle in the Northwest because it reminds me of home, but with a better winter. In my spare time I enjoy water-skiing, camping, playing guitar and spending time with my wife and three children. I am excited to experience the great fishing, rafting and other activities the Rogue Valley has to offer.

Use These Tips to Overcome Your Fear of the Dentist
If you have a fear of the dentist, a routine cleaning can become a major source of stress and anxiety. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways that you can work to overcome your dental fears.

Talk to Your Dentist
If you are fearful about your dental procedure, tell us during your appointment. This will help us decide the best approach for your appointment, and you'll feel more in control of your exam when everyone is on the same page.

Learn about the Procedure
Knowledge is power, so knowing exactly what will happen during your dental procedure can leave you feeling more comfortable. It is your right to understand the work that is going to be done on your teeth.

Ask about Sedation Dentistry
Many dentists recommend the use of laughing gas and other sedation methods for nervous patients. Contact us about potential options that could help you feel more comfortable about your appointment.

Work on Your Breathing
Practicing yoga and meditation outside of the dental office can assist you with your dental appointments. Breathing techniques can help you to relax when you are sitting in the dental chair.

Prioritize Preventive Dentistry
Preventive dentistry is a helpful way to prevent major dental problems that may involve more time spent in a dental chair. The more often that you go in for regular cleanings, the less likely it is that you will experience a greater dental problem that requires extensive treatment.

If you are living with dental anxiety, contact our office today for more tips on how to deal with your fears.
