John was raised in a dental family. His father Dr. K. A. Burnham practiced dentistry in the Bonnie Doon area for 48 years. Even though John's mother was a licensed nurse, she worked with her husband as a dental assistant as he started his new practice. When John was an in his teens he started working in the Denture Lab at his father’s dental clinic. It was during this experience that he felt that he wanted to pursue a career in the dental field. John attended the University of Alberta to pursue a Bachelor of Science Degree taking courses he would need to advance into the Dentistry Program. While a student in University he was introduced to the Denturist Profession by a friend. After a thorough investigation, John enrolled in the NAIT Denturist Program while he was finishing up his Bachelor of Science Degree. In 1981 he graduated from both the University of Alberta and NAIT. The graduations were 3 days apart. He graduated with honors in the Denturist Program. After graduation, John started his practice while working with his father. He continued to operate his practice out of his father’s clinic for 17 years. When his father retired John opened Burnham Denture Clinic across the street. Burnham Denture Clinic is at that same location today. John is the father of 5 children, two of which continue the family dental tradition (a Dentist/Prosthodontist and a Dental Hygienist. He is the proud grandpa to 10 grandchildren. When he isn't working, he and his wife are usually visiting them. John loves being a Denturist and very much enjoys working with the great staff he works with and his associations with his patients whom he considers to be family too. His plans are to continue working for many years to come. John loves the Denturist profession. He enjoys the people he works with working with and providing quality denture care to patients. Many of the patients he has cared for over the years are like family. And, 39 years later, he continues to be enthusiastic and optimistic about what he does!

Pam Zylik

Patient Coordinator/Receptionist
Pam completed a Bachelor of Science in 2015 and is a self-proclaimed science nerd who loves to learn. She grew up with horses and dogs and has a soft spot for all kinds of animals. She is also an enthusiastic genealogist and spends most of her free time researching her family tree. Pam enjoys traveling, especially road trips - thanks to her dad's "white line fever" on family vacations, which took them from Calgary all over western Canada, parts of the US, and Toronto. Pam has also traveled to Mexico, Japan, Hawaii, and Alaska. One year while she was in university enjoying long summer vacations, she spent six weeks on the road driving from Calgary to Toronto, on to Boston, and then all the way back west to Seattle and Vancouver. She loved every moment of it. Nearly every day of the trip was seeing new places and enjoying all the beauty along the way. Pam grew up in Calgary, lived in Vancouver for a few years, and has been in Edmonton since 2015. Pam joined the Burnham Denture Clinic family in 2016. She looks forward to coming to work every day and really enjoys working with patients. There's always something interesting going on and there are lots of great stories to hear from our staff and patients!
