What Makes Us Different

Our Approach to Pediatric Dentistry

At Butler Pediatric Dentistry, we’re changing the way kids and parents view pediatric dental appointments. Children are excited to come back for a visit to our office, and many wish that they could stay longer! Our office was designed with your child’s comfort and amusement in mind, so the space is equipped with games, Netflix, fish tanks, and a play area. We also have a sensory room for patients with anxiety or other special needs.  

Dr. Butler and the rest of our team are trained to put children at ease. We have a knack for teaching kids that going to the dentist can be fun. As pediatric dental specialists, we know to pay special attention to your child’s emotional and developmental needs. We tailor our approach to each child so they have a happy, comfortable experience with us and look forward to their next visit.

Vibrant Dental Care

Meet Dr. Leslie Butler

After growing up right here in Orange County, Dr. Butler attended Azusa Pacific University for her Bachelors of Science degree. During her time in college, she actively participated in many community programs for children, and these experiences piqued her interest in pediatric dentistry.

Dr. Butler went on to earn her dental degree from Loma Linda University, then completed her pediatric dentistry training and MSD degree at Loma Linda University Medical Center. Her two years of pediatric specialty training prepared her to work with children with special needs and focus on dental disease prevention. 

Dr. Butler offers highly personalized care for every little patient because she genuinely wants everyone who enters our office to get the attention they deserve. As a mother herself, Dr. Butler works alongside parents to offer informative, educational dental care and make it easier to encourage healthy oral hygiene at home.

When she’s not at the office, Dr. Butler enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She loves reading a great book, Angels’ baseball, Ducks’ hockey, hiking, snow skiing, and photography. Traveling continues to be one of her greatest passions and she looks forward to leading more dental mission trips in the future. If you’re looking for a friendly pediatric dentist in Fullerton, call us today to schedule an appointment for your little one!
