Dr. Samuel "Sam" Burrow

Board-Certified Orthodontist

I am a speaker, teacher, author, and award-winning, board-certified orthodontic specialist. Since co-founding Burrow, Welchel & Culp Orthodontics in 2013, I have personally transformed the smiles of thousands of patients in the Greater Charlotte area.

I have been invited to speak at a number of schools around the country to lecture to orthodontic residents in training including my alma mater, the Medical University of South Carolina, the University of North Carolina, and Harvard University on the mechanics of new-age orthodontics. I have worked with the latest technology and orthodontic systems offered and presented research to the American Association of Orthodontics on using scanning technologies to incorporate overall facial aesthetics into orthodontic practice.

I am co-author of the book, The Orthodontic Answer Book: A Patients Guide Through Orthodontic Treatment. I also author two monthly publications – a monthly newsletter that is delivered to over 3,000 patients of Burrow, Welchel & Culp Orthodontics and a “Case of the Month“ newsletter that’s delivered to over 300 dental professionals in the greater Charlotte and Rock Hill area.

As a board-certified orthodontist, I am committed to staying at the forefront of orthodontic technology and have been asked by numerous vendors to use, test, and provide feedback on various appliances and new technologies. Burrow, Welchel & Culp Orthodontics is the only practice in NC that has been certified to offer a new aligner treatment that is specialized to orthodontists.

I have received the “Best Dentist of Charlotte” award from my peers every year I have been in practice and strive to keep my expertise, quality of work, and excellent patient experience my top priority.
