Who We Are

Founded by Dr. William Burkhart in 1888 as an adjunct to his dental practice, Burkhart Dental now provides over $150 million a year in equipment, repair, supplies, consulting, continuing education and other services to over 5,000 dentists. With more than 400 employees, we are not a small company, yet we continue to provide the attention and service of a private, family-owned business.

We are distinguished by our values, ethics and people. We are driven by a passionate belief in win-win relationships. I ask everyone at Burkhart to focus on three things: Acting with the integrity that earns client trust; being a knowledgeable resource; and always working in our clients’ best interest to help them succeed. I believe that our fulfillment of these principles differentiates us.

I invite you to get to know us and experience the Burkhart difference.

-Lori Burkhart Isbell, President
