About Briana Burris, DDS

Dr. Briana June Burris is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who recently completed a two-year fellowship in endoscopic maxillofacial surgery and minimally invasive temporomandibular joint (TMJ) surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital after completing her residency training at Harbor-UCLA, a busy Level I Trauma Center serving Los Angeles, CA. During her fellowship, Dr. Burris held junior faculty appointments at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, and worked closely with resident surgeons training in the MGH-Harvard residency program. 

Dr. Burris is an educator-clinician with a research focus in the diagnosis and management of immune-based synovial membrane disease. She plans to work closely with the medical device industry towards development of more sensitive, minimally invasive diagnostic modalities and design modifications to improve the ergonomics of surgical instrumentation.

She has given didactic lectures for many renowned institutions, including Harvard, Harbor-UCLA, UPENN, Columbia, USC, Emory, Case Western, Tuft's, Rutgers, Cook County Hospital, and VCU. Additionally, Dr. Burris has instructed live demonstrations on injection of neuromodulators, and has instructed U.S-trained and International surgeons on the basics of TMJ arthroscopy and open surgery, using cadavers for demonstration, at weekend-long hands-on surgical training courses hosted by Nexus CMF and the TMJ mini residency.

In her time outside the hospital, Dr. Burris enjoys painting, golfing, and hiking.
