Meet the Doctors

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. Silsby and wife Heidi decided that Western New York would always be home so after residency they moved back and took over the practice in Albion, NY. Dr. Silsby 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 black labs Calla & 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.
