Dr. Emmy Burns is an associate pediatric dentist at the practice of Dr. Kevin T. Weitzel and Dr. Emmy Burns, Pediatric and Adolescent Dentistry. She comes from a large family of six kids, which may be where her love of children began. She also has nine nieces and nephews. “I love gaining the trust and confidence of a child, helping them through a new experience, and sharing their excitement when they succeed!” says Dr. Burns.
Dr. Burns received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Kentucky and holds two Masters of Science degrees, one from The Ohio State University and one from the University of Lexington in Lexington, Kentucky. She received her DDS from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, where, in her final year of dental school, she served as one of two “team dentists” for the athletes. “To say that I’ve made a few custom mouth guards in my day would be an incredible understatement!” she says. She completed her pediatric dentistry residency program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
Dr. Burns is an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association, and the Columbus Dental Society.
Outside of work, she’s an avid Buckeye fan, and enjoys running and cycling in her free time, as well as spending time with Lily, her Jack Russell terrier. Her favorite food is pizza and her choice for her favorite animated film is “Up.”
