P.E.R.E. Philosophy for Elegant Smile

Prevention – Education – Restoration – Enhancement

Family Dentists being out the best in your smile

P.E.R.E philosophy is behind everything we do at Northstar Dental

Prevention, Education, Restoration, and Enhancement.


All dental diseases can be prevented. By having regular exams and cleanings, we can help patients to maintain a healthy and attractive smile. All dental diseases are closely connected to overall wellness. We care about the overall wellness of our patients. By helping our patients to prevent dental problems, we help them to live an optimal Healthy Lifestyle.


We believe in educating our patients and not simply telling them what needs to be done or hearing traditional nagging by dental professionals. We do not nag or lecture but educate instead. By providing education to our patients, we empower them to make right choices for overall better dental health and becoming copartners in managing dental problems ultimately leading to healthier Lifestyle for our patients.


Our goal is to restore your mouth to give you strong, healthy teeth that allow you to smile, talk and laugh with confidence…and eat what you want on both sides! Restorative dentistry includes everything from white fillings to making your teeth stronger, straighter and offering every option for replacing missing ones. The goal of restorative dentistry is to have a healthy mouth leading to the overall wellness of our patients.


An elegant smile can make a difference in people’s lives. The highlight of our day is when a patient comments to us about how much better they feel about how they look after their visit with us. This can be as simple as removing visible staining after your regular scale and clean, to whitening of your teeth, or as complex as a smile makeover.

Rest assured: Everything we do at Northstar is in our patients’ best interest. As a result, we work hard to preserve both the safety and comfort of our patients’ oral health. It is also our strong belief that everyone deserves access to good oral health and the smile of their dreams. For that reason, Dr. Michael Burbach, Dr. Kathryn Alderman, and Dr. Kimberly Barth have become staples of the family dentists in Lincoln.
