Dr. Burrichter, DDS
As a Minnesota native, Dr. Burrichter grew up with his five siblings southeast of Montevideo in Rochester, MN. He was actively involved in athletics as an adolescent in multiple sports and played baseball in high school. After graduating from John Marshall High School in 1995, he attended the University of Minnesota and graduated from the college of liberal arts with a Bachelor of Arts degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. Upon his graduation, Dr. Burrichter accepted a position as an assistant scientist in the department of pulmonary medicine where he honed his attention to fine detail and this experience culminated in the co-authoring of several scientific journal publications. During this time period, his daughter, Sophia, was born and today she is completing her college education.
Having a lifelong attraction to science, Dr. Burrichter decided to pursue his academic interests and develop his talents and attended the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in 2003. Upon successfully graduating dental school with honors in 2007 and receiving numerous awards such as the School of Dentistry Academic Excellence Award, the Wallace D. Armstrong Award, and the Omicron Kappa Upsilon William S. Kramer Award for top academic honors, Dr. Burrichter accepted a general practice residency position at St. Francis Hospital and medical Center, in Hartford, CT. There, Dr. Burrichter gained additional knowledge and improved his skill set in all areas of dentistry, especially oral surgery due to the hospital being a level one trauma center. After successful completion of his residency, Dr. Burrichter was accepted to an oral and maxillofacial surgical residency at UCONN Health Center where he successfully completed an additional year of training in oral surgery.
At the completion of his formal dental and residency training, Dr. Burrichter returned to Minnesota where he practiced several years in the metro area prior to joining Main Street Dental Care in 2016. After more than three years of practicing at this location, Dr. Burrichter decided to acquire the practice from his late predecessor, Dr. John Powers, and continue the tradition of providing excellent dental care to the residents of Montevideo and surrounding areas. Although, not native to Montevideo, Dr. Burrichter through his experiences has realized the impact the clinical team at Main Street Dental Care has had throughout the years in providing comprehensive dental care for the thousands of underserved people in Montevideo and surrounding areas who oftentimes make the journey from hours away to receive much-needed care. Being an important part of this much-needed, caring team has led Dr. Burrichter to commit fully to improving access to care which all Minnesotans can benefit from.
Dr. Burrichter’s philosophy regarding dentistry is fairly straightforward and simple. He strives everyday to deliver the best care possible and provide in most cases same-day treatment to truly optimize his service to others to impact the greatest number of people. That being said, almost all dental care and procedures can be completed at this one practice location for patient familiarity, convenience, and confidence as Dr. Burrichter is skilled in providing the full-scope of dental care.
In his spare time away from dentistry, Dr. Burrichter enjoys spending time with family, traveling, playing guitar, golfing, fishing, and attending sporting and music events.
