Silsby Family Dental was founded in June of 2016. Previously, the practice was owned and operated by Dr. Karl Heuer for over 40 years. Dr. Heuer grew a wonderful patient base in the Greater Albion area and worked hard to provide his patients with great care.
He brought together a strong team of dedicated staff who shared in his love of community and great oral health through building relationships first and then restoring beautiful smiles. Upon his retirement, Dr. Heuer and Dr. Silsby found each other through a dental transition company that pairs dentists through their shared personality traits and practice philosophy.
Dr. Silsby is very excited to be able to continue the practice so Dr. Heuer could spend more time with his growing family. Dr. Silsby brings new and advanced services into the office in order to offer comprehensive dental treatment to patients.
The Silsby Family Dental team is excited and honored to work in the Albion community and is committed to providing the best care by working first to form relationships followed by quality dentistry through the latest advancements in the field.
Meet the Doctor
Dr. Evan Silsby, DDS
Dr. Evan Silsby acquired the practice in June 2016. He is a Native of Gasport N.Y. Dr. Evan received his Bachelor’s of Science from SUNY Geneseo and went to earn his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the University at Buffalo. Following graduation Dr. Silsby and his wife, Heidi, moved to North Carolina for a General Dental Residency at the VA Medical Center in Fayetteville N.C.
Dr. Evan and wife Heidi decided that Western New York would always be home so after residency they moved back and took over the practice of Dr. Karl Heuer. Dr. Evan loves working with people to achieve the smile they have always wanted. In his spare time he loves spending time with his two children, Caleb & Grace, his dog Lilly, and spending time in the great outdoors.
Continuing his education to provide the greatest care possible for his patients is of the utmost importance to Dr. Silsby. He has taken many courses offered by some of the greatest minds in dentistry and is always looking forward to implementing what he learns into the practice.
Dentistry has made some major strides integrating the latest technology into patient care. Our office enjoys adding tech to help improve the experience and accuracy of treatment.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
This technology is integral to our ability to place dental implants accurately as well as diagnose and plan many other procedures.
Digital X-rays reduce radiation exposure, can be viewed right away (no development process) and help make treatment faster and more predictable.
Advanced Diode Laser
Lasers have become a great tool- making some traditional techniques obsolete and others faster and more comfortable.
