Harold E. Butler, DDS, MHA

“I went into dentistry because I enjoy the combination of art and science, the variety and challenge, and making people happy,” says Dr. Butler, oral surgeon. “I am casual, straightforward, and open with patients. I try to give them enough information to make good decisions about their dental health. Most of all, I care about what is best for the patient. It keeps my head out of the clouds and my feet on the ground.”

In his spare time, Dr. Butler enjoys reading about history and religion, classical music, and supporting Christian endeavors in the community.
