Dr. Michael Slavin


Solving Your Healthcare Needs

“I tell my patients exactly the way things are. I do not “sugar coat” procedures, so my patients are fully informed.”

Dr. Slavin was born and raised in Chicago. Growing up as the last of six children he wanted to have a big family of his own. Now he has six children (four boys and two girls) and a labradoodle dog named Webster, and a cat named, Mister.

Our doctor chose dentistry (specifically periodontics) because it allowed him to use his creative and artistic abilities, as well as, scientific knowledge to solve patients healthcare needs. For him, the best part of his job is to be able to participate in the process of solving significant or complex oral health and medical issues.

Dr. Slavin’s main interests in dentistry are periodontics, dental implants, bone and soft tissue grafting. He is a board-certified periodontist and has been awarded the title of Top Periodontist in Chicago Magazine for the years of 2016, 2017, and 2018 through the votes of his peers.

Outside of the office, he enjoys to swim, bike, run and play tennis, also, to spend time with his children.

Putting Patients First

Helping patients is our passion, no matter what their smile needs may be. Take a look at what some of our current and previous patients think of Carol Stream & Elgin Dental Associates.

“The real star of the show was Jen, my dental hygienist. She noted my anxieties and was so understanding and gentle with the whole process. She never made me feel bad about neglecting my oral care and just said she was happy I was there now. If you have any fear about going to the dentist, I HIGHLY recommend Carol Stream Dental.”

“I absolutely love everyone at the office! Everyone is so welcoming and caring. They all seem to love what they do. They are very professional and explain everything in detail. I no longer live in Elgin but I will continue to come here because of how amazing they are.”

“This practice is phenomenal with children. I have been taking my daughter here for 6 years and today she had a baby tooth pulled. Dr. Johnny and the hygienist were amazing! It was a positive and painless experience for my daughter. I definitely recommend their office for pediatric care.”
