    I chose Dr Slaughter to care for my daughters when they needed their wisdom teeth removed. I'm a general dentist and certainly had many choices of oral surgeons. I chose Joe Slaughter because of his great reputation in the dental community, his experience and advanced training, and his amazing team. His office was certainly not the closest, but I felt he was the best to take care of my daughters. They had a 100% comfortable experience and I do recommend this office to everyone!

    I had my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Slaughter and developed an infection which was misdiagnosed. I was told it was a muscle spasm. A month later, I was admitted to the hospital with 6 abscesses and had to have numerous surgeries and 2 pieces of my jaw bone removed. I was suffering from septic shock because the infection had gone into my blood stream. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
