Meet our Staff


LoriBorn and raised in the San Francisco Bay area, my dad had a dental practice in South San Francisco. My maternal grandfather was also a dentist and a great uncle and cousin were orthodontists.  You could say the oral health care industry is in my DNA.

 I majored in commercial art in college but found my niche early on working part time as receptionist for my father in his dental practice. I love to travel and have been fortunate to  visit many countries.  At home I dabble in art, love the outdoors and enjoy time with my family, friends and little dogs. 

 I find the interaction with patients most rewarding, from the first phone call to meeting and getting to know them in person. Working with Dr. Butura is an exciting and educational experience. He challenges us to be the best and it’s so gratifying to witness our patient’s transformations to happy and beautiful smiles.

SharonI have been an oral surgery assistant for 20 years.  I began my career in general dentistry.  After moving from Wisconsin to Arizona, I obtained my certificates for Oral and Maxillofacial surgery assistant (ACLS).  Working in the dental field has been a rewarding and challenging career.  In my free time I enjoy reading, hiking and tole painting.


MarieI have been working in the dental industry for 15 years.  I love being able to greet patients and always make them feel welcomed.  On my free time I enjoy supporting and witnessing my husband and two teenagers train and compete in different forms of martial arts.  I love going to the movies with my family, read a good book, workout, listen to music and always looking to try new vegan food!
