Meet Dr. Burden

A Millstone, NJ dentist with a lifelong love for education and enhancing smiles.
Headshot of Dr. James Burden at New Paradigm Dentistry
I completed my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at Temple University in 1999, where I learned traditional dentistry techniques. I finished my hospital-based general practice residency at the Virtua Health System in New Jersey in 2000.
While taking a two-day course entitled Air Abrasive MicroDentistry, my approach to dentistry completely changed. I then began diagnosing and treating dental disease and opened my first solo microdentistry practice, New Paradigm Dentistry, in 2001.

What does that mean?

Dr. Burden had to complete 500 hours of continuing education in various disciplines and then pass a rigorous examination with the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD)…Opens a new window to the AGD website…. This recognition has been achieved by less than 6% of all practicing U.S. and Canadian dentists. A dentist who has received their Fellowship with the AGD offers their patients cutting-edge care.

I became an AGD Fellow...

Because of my commitment to continuing education goes far beyond educational and licensing requirements.

I have dedicated myself...

To learning, growing, and staying current in my field so that I can provide the best oral care to all my patients and their families.
