Dr. Jeff Sletto
Dr. Jeff Sletto joined the office in January, 2019 when he purchased the practice from Dr. McQueary. He was born in Kansas, but spent the majority of his younger years growing up in the small town of Plattsburg, Missouri. He moved to Springfield to attend Missouri State University, and he received his bachelor’s degree in biology. He then attended the University of Missouri Kansas City's School of Dentistry and graduated in 2017. He and his wife Lonna, had their first child in 2017 and decided to move closer to family, who all live in the Springfield area. Dr. Sletto first worked for a dental office in Nixa, Missouri before he purchased this practice.
“I love working with patients and giving them a beautiful result. I also enjoy the mix of science and artistry that dentistry brings in order to help patients feel better and be more confident about their smiles. I have really enjoyed getting to know the patients that Dr. McQueary has treated over the years. They are wonderful patients and I feel fortunate to have found such a good group of people.”
Dr. Sletto currently lives in Rogersville, MO with his wife, Lonna, and their son Maddax. They enjoy camping and riding the trails in their off-road vehicles, and spending quality time with family.
Dr. Betsy McQueary
Dr Betsy McQueary started practicing Dentistry in 1986 in Springfield Missouri. Dr. Betsy grew up in Columbia Missouri and received her undergraduate degree from Southwest Missouri State University now MSU and earned her doctor of dental surgery degree from University of Iowa in 1985. She started in a dental practice in Wellesley, Massachusetts before moving back to Springfield. Continuing education has always been important to Dr McQueary. She has attended national programs at the Pankey Institute and the Continuum in Cosmetic Dentistry at the University of the Pacific with nationally recognized Cosmetic Dentist. She is also one of a few dentists in southwest Missouri who practices laser dentistry.
"I have loved practicing dentistry the last 33 years and look forward to staying in the profession, but just shortening my working time. I feel very fortunate to be able to turn the practice ownership over to Dr. Sletto and yet still be a part of the practice. The best feature of being a dentist has been the long lasting relationships I've built with our patients. It has been incredibly rewarding to have the privilege of taking care of my patients, the chance to now take care of multiple generations in a family. Professionally challenging and rewarding is the opportunity to create beautiful smile makeovers which is still my passion combining excellent dentistry with aesthetics.
Dr. McQueary has three grown children, and she is extremely proud of them. She lives on her horse farm in Rogersville and raises Thoroughbred horses, which she enters into races and works with after their racing days are over. She still enjoys riding.
