Dr. Slager's Care Philosophy
Every patient, regardless of age, race, gender, or financial status will be treated with the utmost respect and access to the highest quality dentistry available today. I will never perform unnecessary dentistry, but I believe in handling dental problems while they are small instead of waiting for them to get bigger and have to play catchup. Every one of my patients is different and I often tailor my practice philosophy to match the individual thoughts and preferences of the patient.
