Hello my name is Amanda Jackson. I graduated from Mesa Community College in 2010 with a degree in Dental Hygiene. I knew at an early age that I would have a career in the dental field. I was one of those children who actually enjoyed going to the dentist! The best part of my career is that I am constantly meeting interesting and inspiring people. I am very fortunate to have found Butler Family Dentistry. Dr. Butler and I truly believe in delivering the highest quality of care to our patients. It is very rewarding to see our patients get back to health and become motivated about their homecare. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
I’m a fourth generation Arizona native. I was born and raised in Gilbert where I continue to live while raising my two sons. I am an animal lover. I also love to travel and experience different cultures. Biological Dentistry is my passion! I believe that obtaining optimal oral health is the pathway to overall health and living a healthy life.
Felicia Ramirez-Dental Assistant
Hello my name is Felicia Ramirez and I have been a Dental Assistant for 9 years. I graduated with an Associate of Applied Sciences from The Bryman School and I am X ray and coronal polish certified by the state of Arizona. I chose Dental Assisting because it combines two of my passions in life, learning and caring for others. I not only get to know our patients but I also get learn from them. Whether it is through their teeth or our small talk, I gain a new perspective from each and every patient. I enjoy being a part of our patient’s dental family and providing them with a warm safe environment while they receive exceptional dental care.
My name is Estrella Calvillo and I am a mother of five. I am originally from California but moved to lovely Arizona in October of 2004. I have been a dental assistant for 15 years and I love my job. I enjoy educating the patient through active communication about what’s going on throughout their visit. This helps them feel more comfortable and relaxed during their visit.
Mike Butler-Treatment Plan Coordinator
I was born and raised in central Phoenix and attended Saint Simon and Jude grade school and Saint Mary's HS. I joined the US Coast Guard at age 19 and spent 2-1/2 years on the icebreaker Polar Sea. I have sailed the seven seas and have visited 6 continents. Several years ago I started a business as a general contractor here in the valley and very recently gave it up to come work at Butler Family Dentistry. I am very pleased with my decision. My wife and I recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and are currently trying to figure out how to raise our teenager.
Andrea Ripley-Communications Coordinator
My name is Andrea Ripley - but you'll know me as Andi! I was born and raised in Southern California. I attended Barstow College for my Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Development. About four years ago, I moved here, to Phoenix, to attend Arizona Christian University for my Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies; it was there that I met my wonderful husband, Russell. (That's definitely been the highlight of the four years here, so far!) Although working at Butler Family Dentistry is not in either of the fields that I studied in college, working in this environment has proven to be exciting, fun, friendly, and uplifting - a work environment that I am not eager or willing to give up any time soon!
Alex Butler-Office Manager
I was born and raised in Phoenix, received my Bachelor of Science at NAU, and my MBA from the University of Phoenix. My passions in life are God, Dr. B, my children, surfing, and consuming plant based nourishing food. I love my wife's practice because just like Phoenix medicine has also changed. What was once the norm is no longer, at least to us. We have a great affinity for whole body health and nutrition in our home as well as at the office. To me Biological truly is better!!!
