Here’s why our patients are smiling about Dr. Elyse Burkert

  • Marissa was super welcoming answering the phone, and Alexis calmed my nerves. I was seriously thinking that I would have a TON of things needed since I just got insurance and the last time I went to the dentist was when i was on my moms. Dr. Berkurt told me everything looked great and would see me in six months. Thank goodness they are not just trying to run a sales game on you! See yall in six months!

  • I put off going to the dentist for a long time. I noticed this location when it opened around the corner from my home. A friend of mine had great things to say about Ideal Dental so I walked in to schedule an appointment and was surprised they could see me the next day. I probably would have chickened out if they couldn’t have seen me within that same week. I was nervous when I checked in for my appointment but Marissa was so kind and made me feel comfortable right away by letting me know what to expect for my visit. The assistant Alexis was also very friendly and by the time I met the Doctor most of my nervousness was gone. Dr. Burkert explained what I needed for a healthy smile and I was surprised I didn’t need much at all. They did my fillings and cleaning right then! Needless to say, I left with a huge smile on my face, and a sense of relief. I cannot thank them enough for how they made me feel! I will definitely be coming back and I’m actually looking forward to it.

  • We love Ideal Dental. Dr. Burkert, the assistant, and front staff have been so nice. They make sure you know what is happening and what your options are. I had a very bad toothache and need immediate assistance. I called the next morning and they made time for me to come in that day, i feel so much better now

  • Great staff, great looking office, ANNNND pain free dental. I could not ask for more. Marissa is who answered when I called with a toothache and she got me in that day. Not only was I seen, Dr. Burkert also started the treatment THAT DAY! This worked so much for my work schedule not having to come back multiple times before anything was even started. Thank you Ideal Dental of Rockwall for helping me out!

  • My sister is a patient of Dr. Burkert and loves her – so I decided to take a try on this new dentist! LOVE LOVE LOVE the convenience of being right down the street! Super modern office – everything is digital and paperless! I had a tooth bothering me and Dr. Burkert was able to do my fillings right there on the spot. Thank goodness – because I’m too busy to have to come back multiple times.

  • I woke up in extreme pain in the middle of the night and was literally counting the minutes until 8:00 for ANY dental office to open. I called Ideal Dental of Rockwall to see if BY CHANCE they may have any openings since they are very close to my home, and they DID! I came in not knowing what to expect. Marissa calmed me down and assured me, whatever it was, she could take care of me today and had financial options. Alexis took great care in getting my x-rays due to my pain and Dr. Burkert was amazing! The pain was gone, my tooth was fixed, all with a payment plan that fit my budget. Thank you Ideal Dental!

  • I have been waiting for an Ideal Dental to open in Rockwall. My sister is a patient at their Uptown location, so I heard about the free laser whitening and great dental care. Sure enough – Dr.Burkert and everyone here in Rockwall took great care of me. The best part: no cavities!
