Dr. Slaman has been my dentist for longer than I can remember. He and his staff are so kind and considerate. I had a bicycle accident in September that resulted a broken front tooth. The accident was on a Sunday and they got me in on Monday! I was so grateful. Dr. Slaman’s work is impeccable! All of my family members in town see him and we all love him and his staff. I highly recommend them.

When you choose Dr. Slaman and his team of compassionate professionals for your dental care, you can expect to receive world-class service that exceeds your expectations. To ensure our patients experience the top-quality service they deserve when visiting our Albuquerque dentistry practice, Dr. Slaman provides:

Luxurious Amenities

The welcoming reception area features a comfortable couch and chairs, hot tea and coffee, and refreshing filtered water. Our treatment rooms feature warm, comfy blankets, as well as noise-canceling headphones to help you relax.

Effective Anesthesia & Sedation

Some people are afraid of dentists because of the large anesthetic needle. That's why Dr. Slaman uses The Wand® anesthetic system at our dentistry practice. The Wand delivers a computer-regulated flow of anesthesia only to your damaged tooth and not to an entire area of your mouth. Our patients love it and say it's nearly pain-free. Dr. Slaman also offers oral conscious sedation if you're nervous about a procedure.

Open Dialogue

Patient education is extremely important to Dr. Slaman and his dental team. They want you to be as informed as possible so you're fully aware of your current dental health and available treatment options. This will help you make better decisions about maintaining your oral health for years to come.

Featured Procedures

Dental Implants

Losing teeth not only affects the function and form of your smile but your overall health as well. Without teeth, the lack of natural tooth roots causes your jawbone to shrink, making your face look sunken and aged. Dental implants, which are strong titanium posts surgically anchored into your jaw, are the only dental care treatment that can not only stop jaw bone atrophy but reverse it.

Implants help keep your jawbone healthy and strong. They're the most secure method of supporting dental restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures. Dr. Slaman performs all implant surgeries himself in his Albuquerque practice instead of sending our guests to another dentist. Our patients find having surgeries performed by the same extensively educated dentist is both convenient and comforting.

Smile Makeover

Dr. Slaman creates personalized treatments at his Albuquerque cosmetic dentistry office designed to rejuvenate your smile. If extensive restoration is needed, you'll probably need more than one visit to achieve the smile of your dreams. Dr. Slaman may recommend dental procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, dental bonding, and laser gum contouring, keeping in mind your schedule and budget.

Dr. Slaman is a forward-thinking dentist who is constantly researching the latest technological advances in dentistry. He now uses state-of-the-art cosmetic dental imaging to provide you with a preview of how your new smile will look like. This way you can make educated decisions on how to eventually have one of the most beautiful smiles in Albuquerque.

Dental Crowns

Broken, cracked, decayed, or weakened teeth can make eating, drinking, or speaking painful and difficult. A dental crown can restore the function and form of your compromised teeth and prevent the need for extraction in the future. You may be able to receive your crown during one visit thanks to our in-office CEREC® system, which creates natural-looking dental crowns while you relax in our comfortable Albuquerque, NM, dental office.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

If you wake up gasping for air when you sleep, you could have sleep apnea. Interrupted sleep causes concentration, mood, and overall health to suffer. Your bed partner's health could be disturbed as well. Sleep apnea can lead to serious health problems like depression, hypertension, and heart disease if left untreated.

Can a dentist really help you sleep better? Absolutely. Dr. Slaman can provide you with a custom-made, non-surgical appliance that fits comfortably over your teeth during sleep. It opens your airways to keep oxygen flowing as you breathe.

Advanced Technologies Used by Dr. Slaman

Dr. Slaman is a perfection-seeking dentist who isn't satisfied with providing "average" care. Thanks to continuing dental health education, he is always setting the bar higher for himself and his team. Dr. Slaman makes excellent use of the latest dental technologies available including dental lasers, air abrasion instruments, and the CEREC same-day dental crown system. He is truly one of the most advanced dentists in the Albuquerque, NM, area.


Digital X-Rays

Our dentistry practice uses digital x-rays due to the advantages offered over conventional imaging techniques. Digital x-ray processing takes less time and allows images to be enhanced instantly. This exposes patients to less radiation. The detailed clarity allows Dr. Slaman to quickly review your x-rays and make a diagnosis. This means you spend less time in the dentist's chair and more time getting on with your life.

Orthophos SL

Orthophos SL

The Orthophos SL imaging device produces 3-D images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a single scan. This incredible machine allows Dr. Slaman to evaluate any number of potential dental diseases or other issues such as jawbone recession. The images produced by this device can also greatly help him determine if you're a good candidate for dental implants.



A highly trained dentist like Dr. Slaman knows the key to effective dental treatments is early detection. DIAGNOdent uses laser fluorescence to detect a small cavity inside a tooth before it becomes a large cavity. This advanced dental technology is much more precise than visual inspections or x-rays. DIAGNOdent can save you time and money, as early-stage cavities are much easier and more affordable to treat than larger ones.

Sirona Primescan

Sirona Primescan

The cutting-edge Sirona Primescan intra-oral scanning system provides dentists the ability to offer patients a number of treatment options including same-day restorations and sleep apnea therapy. Traditional dental restorations are often uncomfortable, involve messy impressions, and can take weeks and multiple office visits to complete. Sirona Primescan makes it possible to finish your dental appointment with permanent lifelike restorations created and placed while you relax in comfort.
