Dr. James Slaman is an Albuquerque native. After receiving his doctorate in dental surgery from the University of Missouri, he returned to Albuquerque and began private practice in 1992.

Currently Dr. Slaman is sharing his knowledge as a mentor at Spear Education in Scottsdale. In Albuquerque, Dr. Slaman is recognized by his peers as the best dentist in Albuquerque.

Dr. Slaman shares his skills through community outreach. He also participates in the Donated Dental Dental Program, New Mexico Mission of Mercy, and dental missions in Guatemala.

Knowing my patients' needs and concerns is just as important as having the knowledge to care for them. I look at myself as your dental coach. My responsibility is to understand your needs and identify and explain any problems you have after I have given you the information about your conditions so you will be able to make choices that meet your dental goals.

Outside the office, family is Dr Slaman's top priority. He and his wife enjoy spending time with family and friends. During the summer they enjoy boating and camping. In the near future they look forward to teaching their daughter to snow ski.
