Kids are a valued part of our family practice. We look forward to meeting yours. Bring them in to see us, and we’ll make sure they love coming back. Children’s dentistry starts with trust, and we’ll work hard to earn your child’s as well as your own.
Your child’s primary teeth are essential in building the foundation for their adult smile. Contact us to make an appointment for your child.
Children’s dentistry is a welcome part of Dr. Butler’s everyday practice, so feel free to book an appointment at our Kerrville dental office. We are a family practice offering the best complete care possible to each of your family members, large and small!

Seeing the dentist from a young age will help your child become comfortable with our office as well as Dr. Butler and our team. We can take it slow and earn your child’s trust. Visiting the dentist regularly will help your child establish the good habit of regular dental check-ups.
