Meet Dr. Butay

Dr. Nelson Butay

Before Dr. Nelson Butay became a dentist, he received two art awards in sculpting and drawing. Shortly after, he stumbled onto a dental book located in the art section of the University of Hawaii library that united his creativity as an artist with his thirst for scientific knowledge. With a new direction set, he attended Northwestern University Dental School, founded by G.V. Black, the “Father of Modern Dentistry.”

Dr. Nelson Butay applies his skills as an artist to help people realize the power of a personalized smile.  His cosmetic skills are further enhanced by his training in orthodontics. Orthodontic braces sometimes aid his treatment recommendations towards the goal of an optimal outcome.  Straight teeth are generally more attractive, healthier, and easier to maintain. 

Dr. Butay has been practicing dentistry for over 11 years, has completed two years of specialized orthodontic training, and is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry. In 2013, he received The Sun Newspaper’s Favorite Dentists Award and 909 Magazine’s Best Dentist Award. In 2014, 2015, & 2017, Dr. Butay was voted the best dentist by Inland Valley Daily Bulletin readers.

Dr. Nelson Butay has helped many people with broken, crowded, and missing teeth to regain their smile and confidence again. With the conservative use of general and cosmetic dentistry combined with orthodontic braces, Dr. Butay can help you to “Live Your Life Smiling.”
