Meet Our Staff


Aundrea – Front Office Manager


I live in Greeneville with my husband. I have two children; my daughter is a dental hygienist and my son is a student at UT. I've worked in dentistry for almost 20 years, and I came to work for Dr. Burleson in August of 2004.

Dr. Burleson and his team provide a first class facility with the most advanced equipment available to insure the safest, highest quality and less time consuming treatment for each patient. He stresses the importance of attending continuing education classes, so that we stay informed of all dentistry has to offer, maximizing the options we can offer.

The entire team and I, along with Dr. Burleson, pride ourselves in offering the best dentistry to enhance each individual’s oral health. We love to see the difference that preventive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry can make in our patients' lives.

Dental Hygienists



I am a Registered Dental Hygienist. I graduated from the East Tennessee State University Hygiene program and have worked as a dental hygienist since June 2000. In January of 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.



I have been a practicing dental hygienist for over 20 years. I began my career in a pediatric office where I practiced for many years. There are very few dull moments in children's dentistry. I loved the work.

Family job opportunities forced me to leave the pediatric practice. I joined Dr. Burleson's staff in May of 2003. It has been a challenge and a tremendous learning experience.

I am so grateful for the opportunity and exposure in this wonderful and comfortable work environment.



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 of 2005. One of the best things 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 better serve our patients.

Dental Assistants



I am a graduate of David Crockett High School and the East Tennessee State University Dental Assisting Program. This community has always been my home. I have worked for Dr. Burleson since 1984. I live in Jonesborough with my husband and two children. I am very involved in my church and community.

I am constantly amazed at the advancements in dentistry. I am very proud to work in a dental office with the most up-to-date technology and such a caring team. We love our patients!



I am a Registered Dental Assistant. I am a graduate of Daniel Boone High School and Science Hill Vocational School for Dental Assisting. I live in Gray with my two children. I joined Dr. Burleson’s team in October 2011 after 4 ½ years in oral surgery. I am so fortunate to work in an office with up-to-date technology and such a friendly and caring staff. I look forward to meeting with you and serving your needs.
