Comprehensive Services with Cutting-edge Technology

Dr. Slaman is not satisfied unless he is providing the highest-quality care. For this reason, our office is outfitted with advanced dental technology. Digital x-rays, cone beam imaging, and DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection can help Dr. Slaman to make early diagnoses. Then he can create appropriate treatment plans before you experience discomfort or severe dental damage. During your treatment, you will continue to benefit from our advanced tools. With our air abrasion instruments and our Waterlase® laser, Dr. Slaman can provide minimal-discomfort care. We are particularly proud of our CEREC® system. This technology allows Dr. Slaman to often provide same-day treatment with dental crowns and other restorations.


Life-changing Treatments

Dr. Slaman knows that quality dental care will not only affect your smile. It could also benefit your overall quality of life. Our sleep apnea treatment can be particularly valuable. After you receive your custom-made oral appliance, you could enjoy an improved mood, better concentration, and enhanced long-term health. In addition, Dr. Slaman offers diagnosis and therapy for temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Appropriate treatment can alleviate your chronic pain and increase your joint mobility. In fact, like some of our patients, you may be able to eat foods that you have not enjoyed in years!

A Commitment to the Community
