Meet Dr. Slack

N. Curtis Slack, DDS

As a dentist, I am driven to help people improve their lives as it relates to their oral health.  I want to ensure that my patients do not suffer unnecessary pain and tooth loss or decay, so I emphasize preventive care and good oral health practices for them to do at home. When patients come in for dental work, it is my first priority to save their original teeth whenever possible and not perform any unnecessary procedures. I care about my patients because they are so much more than that; they are my neighbors and friends. The blessing I recieve is helping my patients maintain, restore, enhance, and keep a beautiful smile for a lifetime.

Education and Continuing Education

I completed my dental training at Case Western Reserve University, earning my Doctorate of Dental Surgery before going into private practice here in Colorado. In order to give my patients the best care possible, I need to stay current on new technology, techniques, and developments in the dental field. To that end, I continue my education, completing over 100 hours of coursework each year.

Professional Affiliations

In addition to continuing my education, I stay involved with the greater dental community, learning from my peers and sharing my own knowledge with them. I am a member of several local and national organizations, including:

In the Office

My team is made up of three exceptional people who are highly dedicated and trained to serve our patients and provide the best care possible. My team and our practice philosophy consistently address the needs of the patient, both in dental care and general health. I have discovered through my 26 years of dental patient care that patients manage their own dental health best when they are well informed and well educated by me, the provider, as to their individual dental needs and options for care.

Family Life

My wife and I blended our families to now have eight kids under our umbrella. My biological children are Chase, Chelsea, Henry, and Isaac. My wife, Michele, has three children: twin boys Jake and Caleb, who are now my adopted sons, and her daughter Halle, who has little Shannon, our granddaughter. All of our children live here in Colorado with us, so our times together are lively and fun. Our home is completed by a couple of dogs and several fish as our pets.

Mostly, I spend my free time with my family, since Michele and I are still happily raising four wild little boys. It’s pretty crazy and fun, so we do lots of sports and mountain activities like skiing, snow boarding, hiking, hockey, soccer, boating, biking, and just about anything outdoors. We also get some traveling in; mostly road trips to visit family and warmer locations.

In the Community

As a family, we are involved in our church here in Breckenridge and help out with community activities. I have been involved in Rotary for many years, and appreciate the outreaches we do as Rotarians in our community. A particular passion of mine is taking mission trips to South America with a few colleagues, where we provide free dental care to those in need.
