Meet Dr. Burleson

J. Allen Burleson, D.D.S., P.C.


A native of Johnson City, Tennessee, Dr. Burleson attended East Tennessee State University where he received his undergraduate degree. He earned his D.D.S. degree at the University of Tennessee Center for Health Sciences in Memphis in June of 1982. Shortly after graduating, he began his private dental office in Jonesborough, Tennessee.

Dr. Burleson is a member of the American Dental Association, Tennessee Dental Association, First District Dental Society and the Christian Medical and Dental Association. He is a Fellow of the International College of Dentists and the American College of Dentists.

Dr. Burleson believes that one of the number one attributes that people notice when meeting for the first time is their smile and has dedicated his practice to the restoration and maintenance of his patients’ smiles. He believes that a smile can convey confidence, warmth, happiness, and can serve as a basis upon which friendships and business relationships are formed.

Some of the most important things in Dr. Burleson’s life are his Christian faith, family, his wife, son, and daughter. His dog, Snicker, is right there with them. He also enjoys simple pleasures, such as Harley Davidson motorcycles, scuba diving, golf, tennis, snow skiing, and target shooting.

Dr. Burleson is an avid supporter of East Tennessee State Athletics. He gives back to those less fortunate by assisting Go International, the Keystone Dental Clinic, and Samaritan’s Purse.
