Why Did You Become a Dentist?
Dr. Butler decided to become a dentist when he was still in junior high. He always had a knack for science while growing up and also genuinely enjoyed visiting his childhood dentist, which was definitely at odds with most kids his age. All these years later, he’s never once regretted the commitment to make this field his lifelong career.
Where Did You
Dr. Butler graduated in a high school class that included just 15 people, and he was the first person in his family to earn his college degree too! He attended Tarleton State University and then pursued his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center Dental School at San Antonio. Subsequently, he joined the United States Air Force, completing a one-year dental residency program at Travis AFB in California. After being stationed at Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas for two years, he entered private practice.
Today, Dr. Butler is a proud Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, as well as a current member of the American Dental Association and Texas Dental Association. He is also a current Mentor of the Kois Center.
What is the Kois Center & Why is it Important?
Simply put, members of the Kois Center are never satisfied with the status quo. This unique continuing education program for practicing dentists is the only one in the country that conducts and publishes independent research, and every course is updated yearly on the basis of new scientific evidence. Dentistry is constantly evolving, and Dr. Butler and other like-minded dentists are committed to staying right at the forefront of these developments.
