Greetings, I’m Dustin! I’m a speaker, teacher, author and business strategist for over 4,000 professional practice owners and entrepreneurs located in 35 countries throughout the world. I write and edit five newsletters monthly. I’m the attending orthodontist at Children's Mercy Hospital and and Adjunct Clinical Professor at the UMKC School of Dentistry in the Department of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics. I've founded several orthodontic and pediatric dental practices in Kansas City, Missouri. Recently, I sold those practices to the excellent team at Rock Dental Brands. Today, when I’m not on stage or hosting a podcast, I’m a venture partner at Flagstaff Ventures, father to three boys, sailor and married to the most-amazing business partner and dog mom, Ashley.

Dustin S. Burleson, DDS, MBA

I'm a champion of patient-centered treatment and I have a long track record of helping doctors transform their lives and leave a strong legacy for their families, co-workers, communities and profession. My orthodontic marketing campaigns have generated over $500 million in revenue for my clients and privately held practices. I'm the author of 7 best-selling books and provide more free orthodontic treatment to children in need through Smiles Change Lives than any other doctor in North America.

The 9,000+ members of my email list span multiple industries. They’re doctors, dentists, lawyers, bestselling authors, musicians, executives, professors, students and residents. But above all, they’re leaders and truth seekers. They have a passion for challenging the status quo about how the world works. They know the best way to get ahead is to be different, not better. They know it’s almost always wrong to simply follow what others are doing.
