Meet Our Dentist Jon Marc Van Slate, DDS, FAGD
Dr. Van Slate is truly ahead of the pack when it comes to the knowledge and training to perform excellent dentistry. Since beginning his dental practice in 1989, he has remained steadfast in his commitment to continuing education, which he believes is crucial to providing exceptional patient care. He has completed over 150 hours of continuing dental education coursework each year since 1999 and is passionate about discovering new avenues through which to improve his craft.
Dr. Van Slate has become affiliated with a number of prestigious dental organizations throughout his career. He spent time at the Pankey Institute and Spear, two premier professional groups for study in various fields of dentistry.
He also earned Fellowship with the world-renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), where he completed coursework in Advanced Anterior Esthetics, Comprehensive Esthetics, Occlusion, Neuromuscular Principles, and Full Mouth Reconstruction. Less than 5% of dentists in the country have achieved this level of training in neuromuscular and cosmetic dentistry. His combination of experience and education gives him the skill to perform a wide range of restorative, general, and cosmetic dentistry services.
When he's not working with patients or furthering his knowledge of dentistry, Dr. Van Slate loves spending time in the great outdoors and relaxing with his wife and two daughters at their lake house on Toledo Bend.

Why Houston Patients Trust Us For High-Quality Dentistry
Your mouth, jaw, neck, and facial muscles work in tandem to maintain the comfortable, effective function of your bite. Our dentist knows this, and he approaches each case with this principle in mind. When examining the state of your smile, Dr. Van Slate will take the full function of your head and neck into account. He can recommend methods to improve your bite and also perform treatment with orthodontics and custom oral appliances. In many cases, you'd have to visit an orthodontist for these specialized services, but our dentist can treat you right here at our Houston office.
In addition to earning Fellowship to the LVI, the organization has taken their recognition of Dr. Van Slate a step further by listing him as a Preferred Dentist. This means that a network of some of the most accomplished professionals in neuromuscular and cosmetic dentistry consider Dr. Van Slate to uphold the highest standards of care in these fields. Patients throughout the state travel to us to benefit from his skilled approach to issues like TMJ, sleep apnea, and aesthetic dental concerns.
Dr. Van Slate does more than just neuromuscular dentistry. Over three decades in practice, he has developed skills in various fields, including restorative dentistry, endodontics, periodontics, and cosmetic care. Whether you want to correct crooked teeth with Invisalign®, address a root canal infection with virtually painless treatment, or give your teeth an upgrade with custom porcelain veneers, Dr. Van Slate can handle it all. Our dentist treats patients of all ages, making our practice a convenient dental home for your entire family.
Calming Sedation Options
We understand that friendly faces and a gentle touch may not be quite enough to help you feel at ease in the dental chair, especially if you're undergoing more intensive oral health care. To help all our patients achieve peace of mind, we offer oral conscious and nitrous oxide sedation. Both of these options can bring about a deep sense of calm that allows you to relax for a pain-free, worry-free experience at our Houston office.
