Dental Hygienists


Martha, RDH

I graduated from East Tennessee State University with a Dental Hygiene degree in 1982 and have been in practice since. I began my career in pediatric office where I practiced for many years. There are very few dull moments in children’s dentistry, and I loved the work.

I joined Dr. Burleson’s staff in 2003. It has been a great joy to meet so many interesting and fascinating patients here. As part of Dr. Burleson’s staff, I have been blessed to have the opportunity to learn about and use new technologies and apply them to dentistry and dental health. Everyone wants to be part of a team that cares for, and about, people. We want our patients to feel great about their smiles and use them often. I will always be glad to see you come in and share a smile with you. Thanks for being part of my day.


Lisa, RDH

I am a Registered Dental Hygienist. I graduated from East Tennessee State University Hygiene program and have worked as a dental hygienist since June 2000. In January 2002, I came to work for Dr. Burleson.

His office has been a great working experience for me. By using the most updated technology, having a comfortable environment to work in and a friendly staff, it enables me to be more focused on my patient’s care.

Our hygiene team stays up to date on the latest in periodontal health and we strive to do all we can to see that our patients receive the best care possible.


Lana, RDH

I graduated from East Tennessee State University in 1996 with a degree in Dental Hygiene and have worked with Dr. Burleson’s team since April 2005. One of the best things that I love about my career is meeting new people and getting to know them on a personal level.

This office is appealing because of the most up-to-date technology, comfortable setting and caring attitudes of the staff. As a team, we all strive to provide our patients with the best possible care. Each year we obtain 15-20 hours of continuing education so that we can best serve our patients.


Tiffany, RDH

Hi ya’ll! My name is Tiffany, and I am from Jonesborough. I am married to my wonderful husband and we have four fur-babies that keep us on our toes! I enjoy being outside on my days off, so you will likely find me fishing or hiking on one of the many great trails in the area.

I graduated from East Tennessee State University’s dental hygiene program and have been working with Dr. Burleson’s team since June 2019. I am super blessed to be part of such a wonderful office and continue to learn daily. The field of dentistry is constantly evolving, and our office strives to have the latest technology to ensure you are always taken care of. My focus every time I step into the office is to put my patients at ease and create a comfortable, family-like atmosphere. To those with dental fears, I promise we are not that bad, and I hope to see your smiling face in my dental chair to prove it.
