Professional Vision Statement
“The Lord has blessed me with a career in general dentistry. It is my duty and obligation as a health care professional to constantly advance in my skills and knowledge as the field of dentistry continues to evolve. Our practice has the reputation for compassion and excellence throughout Brazos Valley. I am able to have a balance in my life creating sufficient time for faith, family, and service. I imprint my Christian values into my practice philosophy. I enjoy working with other dental professionals and look forward to working with them to improve dental health throughout our country and underserved nations.”


Dr. Gregory Melton

Dr. Melton was born and raised in Tyler, TX. Upon graduating from The University of Texas at Tyler, he continued his education at Baylor College of Dentistry, graduating in 2006. During that time, he met his wife, Alissa, while working at Pine Cove camps. After practicing in Tyler and Dallas, Dr Melton and his family of five call the Brazos Valley home. He joined Dr. Burchfield and his practice in April, 2011, and can think of no better area to be able to serve the community's dental care needs.

Professional Vision Statement
"I find it a great privilege to practice dentistry and be able to interact with people in the dental office setting. I do my best to put patients at ease with a fun, laid back environment, while at the same time providing the best quality care possible. My main focus with patients is honesty, giving them their viable options and guiding them through the process of maintaining or achieving dental health. Professionally and personally, I strive to serve God in all I do. My family is my focus, but I hold my family of patients in high esteem as well."
