At Innovative Dental Ideas, Dr. Butler is a leading authority on modern, non-invasive, and cost-effective mini implant systems. He’s spent two decades in private practice developing an unmatched expertise in multiple implant systems, which has made him one of Ohio’s most in-demand dentists for dental implants and extreme dental makeovers.
In 2006, Dr. Butler founded Innovative Dental Implants Laboratory, LLC with the goal of furthering his efforts in research, consulting, teaching, and charity work. He’s certified to train other dentists in best uses of mini implants, and espouses the following treatment philosophy:
“Only dental implants can strengthen the damaged mouth. Each implant candidate has a right to become informed of all dental and general health issues affecting their oral health. All patients are offered the simplest possible treatment that meets their needs. Each candidate shall have informed consent of all available implant treatment appropriate for their concerns. All care rendered will be warrantied within the limits of our control, and we strive to achieve long term health and wellness for each individual.”
"Dr. Butler. & his staff have turned my situation around. Even though I no longer live in Ohio, I travel from South Carolina, about 700 miles, because I only trust him."
"I hadn't been to the dentist in years & had to have a tooth removed & replaced with an implant which was kind of scary at first. Everybody there comforted me."
"I've been a patient of Dr. Butler for over a decade. He has helped me maintain orthodontic corrections made when I was a child with simple preventive devices."
