Dental Care - Before
Dental Care - After
"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." Dr. Slaman
