They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. This phrase is befitting to describe the journey Dr K K Butta set out on 60 years ago to bring alive his vision of a streamlined and standardized dental practice by providing the best in class dental care, through competent and efficient means pleasingly and transparently.
A practising dentist in Multan (Pakistan), Dr K K Butta’s father came to India in 1947 and opened a small dental clinic in Chitpur. Taking after his father, Dr K K Butta studied hard to become a dentist and set up a bigger establishment in Burrabazar (Kolkata). Dr K K Butta’s dental clinic was inaugurated by none other than the Father of Modern Dentistry in India Dr R Ahmed. This encouragement and support fueled his drive even further and there was no looking back. Dr Butta traveled extensively and observed the lack of modern diagnostic and treatment facilities in India, especially Kolkata. He wanted to shift away from the traditional, back-dated dentistry practiced all around and move towards a more classy, sophisticated and technologically sound dental practice. To overcome the glaring technological gap Dr K K Butta was determined to bring international quality dentistry to the city while ensuring it is affordable and within the reach of the masses. Hence Dental World was born, bringing in a new dawn in the field of dental care and education.
