Spencer Burnham, DMD
I love dentistry because it allows me to do something meaningful and rewarding as a career. I enjoy helping people get out of pain, restoring confidence in their smiles, and the opportunity to build long term relationship with the patients who trust me with their care. For me, dentistry is about helping people. This was recognized by my clinical faculty in dental school when I was given the Patient Centered Care Award at graduation.

Education and Continuing Education
I studied Business and Hospitality Management at BYU-Hawaii and graduated with a double major in 2004. In 2010, after six years in various sales capacities, I enrolled at the University of Utah as a Biology major in preparation for Dental School. I was admitted to Roseman University of Health Sciences in 2012 and graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2016.

One of the reasons I was drawn to dentistry is because the profession demands a lifetime of learning. I am a member of the Southern Oregon Dental Society, the Oregon Dental Association, the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry and the Academy of LDS Dentists. I look forward to continuing my professional development through these associations.

Family Life
I grew up in Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, a small agricultural town about four hours east of Vancouver. I fell in love with Medford when looking for a place to settle in the Northwest because it reminds me of home, but with a better winter. In my spare time I enjoy water-skiing, camping, playing guitar and spending time with my wife and three children. I am excited to experience the great fishing, rafting and other activities the Rogue Valley has to offer.

Helping to Protect Dental Crowns for Longevity
When you get a dental crown, it is important that you learn how to take care of it. If you take good care of it, you will get more years of use out of it than if you did not take care of it. There are a few things that can be done to help make crowns last as long as possible. Here are some of the things that you can do to increase how long your crowns last in your mouth.

Helping Crowns Last as Long as Possible

First, you need to make sure that you are keeping your mouth clean and healthy. This means that you need to keep brushing twice each day. Plus, you need to floss at least once per day. When you are done flossing, you should also rinse your mouth thoroughly with mouthwash. Then, make sure you come in and see us every six months.

Next, you need to make sure you are not chewing on anything that is not good for you. This includes ice, pens, pencils, and similar items. Chew on foods, drink your beverages nicely, and do not put excess pressure on that crown.

Finally, you want to make sure that you get checked out for bruxism. That is when you grind or clench your teeth. Doing this puts a lot of strain on your teeth, especially a crown. It can cause your crown to crack or even break off.

If you are not sure what other things you can do to help keep your crown healthy, ask us at your next appointment!
