Landon King, DDSGeneral Dentistry
My desire to become a dentist was inspired by previous experiences that I had with my dentist growing up. I always appreciated the care and compassion that was shown towards me and that is what I always strive to give my patients. I always want my patients to feel welcome and know that they are in good hands. I love working with my patients to help them improve their smile, quality of life, and self-esteem.
I feel that through compassion, understanding, and creativity I can always give my patients the quality of care they deserve. Before dental school, I graduated from Washington State University with Honors. After college, I went on to graduate from the University of Washington School of Dentistry.
In my free time, I am trying to stay fit by lifting weights, running around Lacamas Lake, golfing, or playing my all-time favorite sport of hockey.
Burke Jardine, DMDProsthodontics
The decision to become a prosthodontist after becoming a mechanical engineer (BYU–‘03) and a dentist (UNLV–‘07) may not seem like a typical combination. But for Burke, he has been able to take his passion of figuring things out, designing, and building better things and merge that with dentistry to become a prosthodontic specialist. As a prosthodontist, he can see the big picture of how the mouth works, the small intricate parts of the gums and teeth, and the artistry to create a smile for his patients’ needs that they will love.
Dr. Jardine brings his unique training, skills, and talents to Smiles Dental Camas. After his four years of dental school training at UNLV, he practiced family dentistry for three years. He went on to complete a three-year dental residency to specialize as a prosthodontist at LSU. A prosthodontist is a dental specialist who has significantly more training in every aspect of dentistry, particularly implants, implant restorations, cosmetic makeovers, dentures, and other complex dental prostheses. Often dentists and other dental specialists will refer their patients to Dr. Jardine for specialized care.
Burke has been married for 14 years to Amber, and they have four children – two boys and two girls. They love to have family pizza, movie, and ice cream night, go on bike rides and spend time exploring the area. They are excited to be living in the beautiful Northwest. Burke is an avid sports fan, especially college sports, and plays almost all sports. He also enjoys serving others in his community and church.
