Dr. Mona Butani
Dr. Mona Butani has a beautifully diverse background, and that is just one thing that makes her so compassionate and relatable. She was born in India, grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Canada), and then moved to Hawaii to join her husband, where he was stationed in the military.
Dr. Butani studied and graduated from the University of Saskatchewan College of Dentistry in 1998.
After Dr. Butani’s husband finished his military service, the pair fell in love with the Seattle area and decided to call it home. “It’s got a great mix of urban and suburban lifestyles, ethnic diversity, outdoor activities, and excellent opportunities for my children,” says Dr. Butani. “Seattle’s professional opportunities are also very attractive. Here, I am in the company of colleagues with similar professional values who practice the most up-to-date, cutting-edge dentistry available.”
When Dr. Butani is not helping her patients get their oral health in check, she devotes her time to keeping her children in check. “I try to put 100 percent of my attention to keeping my two little boys out of trouble.” Family is very important to Dr. Butani. She treasures the days she can spend with them playing in the park, riding bikes, or getting away for a dinner date with her husband.
Professionally and personally, she’s guided by the motto,
“You can’t have improvement without change.”
The quote inspires her to keep up with the latest changes in dentistry and cope with the bittersweet feeling that her little boys are growing up.
