After earning a Bachelor of Science degree from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas in 1984, he completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree at the University of Tennessee Center for Health Sciences in Memphis, Tennessee in 1988. After his education, Dr. Burcham returned to Kennett, where he merged with the practice of his father, Dr. Russ Burcham, who had practiced in Kennett since 1951. (“Dr. Russ” soon began a passionate pursuit of overseas missions, and retired from dentistry in 1989.) Since 1989, Dr. Burcham has maintained a solo practice in general dentistry.
