Dr. Lennie Slipacoff
Dentist

Dr. Slipacoff graduated from University of Western Ontario, School of Dentistry in 1981 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree. Dr. Leonard Slipacoff, Doctor of Dental Surgery Dentist was born in Petrolia, Ontario and raised in Sarnia, Ontario for most of his life.

Dr. Leonard Slipacoff, Doctor of Dental Surgery Dentist was born in Petrolia, Ontario and raised in Sarnia, Ontario for most of his life. Married to Cindy Slipacoff, they have three sons together, Tyler, Craig and Ryan. Tyler and Ryan are also Dentists and work with Dr. Slipacoff in his practice as well, while Craig works in the Computer Science and Information Technology field. Tyler is married to Ekaterina, who is also a dentist practicing at Slipacoff Dental Centre.

Dr. Slipacoff graduated from Northern Collegiate Institute & Vocational School in 1972 and then continued his post secondary education at the University of Western Ontario where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 1975. In 1981, Dr. Lennie graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. He was the recipient of the Prosthodontics of Ontario Award and upon graduation, he immediately started practicing dentistry at his current location, 929 Michigan Avenue. Realizing that dentistry is a very dynamic profession that is constantly changing, Dr. Slipacoff has done extensive training and continuing education throughout the United States and Canada. It was very important for him to be able to offer his patients the most up to date and current treatments available. This has allowed his practice to offer a full range of dental services eliminating the need for referrals to other dentists and specialists.

Dr. Slipacoff is very passionate about dentistry today as he was 38 years ago when he first graduated. With all the advancements in dental care and technology, he has found it exciting and rewarding to show patients how much easier and gentle dentistry is today. Equally exciting for him, is to have his two sons and daughter-in-law working with him in his practice, as they have also done extensive continuing education and training throughout the world. Dr. Slipacoff said, “I am very proud to watch them grow and learn professionally. It is rewarding for me to share my knowledge and expertise that I have accumulated over my career. It is so important to me that my patients receive the same care and treatment that they have received from me over many years. I cannot thank my patients enough for all the years of loyalty and support extended to me and Cindy and the continued support for Tyler, Ryan and Ekaterina. I am truly blessed.”
