Dr. Craig Slack

Let me welcome you to our practice!

My name is Dr. Craig A. Slack. I earned my Doctorate in Dental Surgery from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 1987.  I have enjoyed working in the area since 1988.  I absolutely love what I do and feel fortunate to consider it both a profession and a passion.  I enjoy offering the best in our business and regularly pursue continuing education opportunities to stay up with all the latest changes and technological advances. I love giving people back their smiles!

I grew up in Granville, Ohio but have enjoyed calling this home for the past thirty years.  As an undergraduate at Miami University, I met and married a wonderful and talented woman, Tina, who has joined me in making my practice friendly, efficient and effective.  We have three children – Jessica, Andrew and Josh – who are a constant source of both pride and laughter.  

When not working, I enjoy spending time with family and now have 2 grandchildren who bring even more excitement to my life. I love trying out new restaurants, supporting Crew soccer, volunteering with Northern Kiwanis, a community service organization, and, of course, cheering on the Buckeyes.


Tina Slack – Executive Director

My name is Tina and I am Dr. Slack’s wife and the Executive Director.  I graduated from Miami University in 1984 with a B.S. in Chemistry.  While Dr. Slack claims to have “stolen me” from Chemical Abstracts in 1991 to help him establish and manage his practice, I wanted to help him build his practice and take care of patients administratively in the way that he did dentally.  I love helping Craig care for his patients and enjoy building long term relationships.  

It’s a joy to see multiple generations of patients who brought their children in who are now bringing THEIR children in.

In my free time, I enjoy volunteering in education and spending time with my grandchildren.


Dr. Jesus Hernandez – Associate Dentist

From a small town in central Florida. He completed his undergraduate at the University of Florida and received a Bachelors’s in Biology. He then went on to receive his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. Dr. Hernandez is a member of the American Dental Association and the American College of Prosthodontists. Dr. Hernandez moved with his fiance to Ohio last summer and now lives in the Grandview district of Columbus. He enjoys fishing, cooking, playing chess, watching soccer, and spending time with loved ones.

His passion is to provide excellent care to all of his patients and have them leaving with a smile. Although he is a Gators fan, he is excited to be part of the Buckeyes hometown.
