Our office, as well as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommends that your child visit the dentist by his/her 1st birthday. You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. Your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and their staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less to-do concerning the visit, the better.
We strive to make each and every visit to our office a fun one!
Provider & Staff
It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself to the Vancouver/Camas Southwest Washington area.
I am happy that you have chosen my clinic for your child’s needs and I look forward to serving you, your family, and the community in the years to come.
I am originally from the East coast, born in Baltimore, Maryland. I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland. In 1991, I received my Doctor of Medical Dentistry from Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts. I continued my studies in Michigan after matching to a residency program in which I specialized in pediatric dentistry. The Children’s Hospital of Michigan is one of the country’s leading hospitals with many pediatric specialties that contribute to the development and rehabilitation of cleft palate infants. During my senior year as Chief Resident, I completed my pediatric dentistry program by winning first place in the National Graduate Research Competition, with a presentation of my work with cleft palate infants.
Additional Certifications and Training
1994, I was recruited to the Portland area by a large managed care group for whom I have worked for the past eight years.
In 1999, I was fortunate enough to adopt an eleven-month old darling little girl whom I named ‘Breck Lauren Butler.’ We live in Gresham, along with our two dogs, Graham and Hansel. During my leisure time, I enjoy playing tennis, gardening, quilting, and traveling. I most recently discovered horseback riding with my daughter, an avid horse lover, and together, we plan many equestrian adventures.
I am Board Certified in pediatric dentistry and am licensed for pediatric dentistry in both Washington and Oregon. I am also a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the Washington Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, as well as an active on-staff member at Legacy Emanuel Children’s Hospital in Portland.
