DR. CAREY LASLEY DDS
I was born and raised in Southern California where I graduated from Nordhoff High School in Ojai, California in 1977. My undergraduate work was completed at Brigham Young University. After my freshman year I took four years off from school and worked in Alaska on workboats as a member of the merchant marines. I was accepted to the University of Washington School of Dentistry in 1984. I am the proud father of six incredible children ranging in age from 14 - 30 years old. I have one grandson who is 5 years old and a granddaughter who is now 3. Being a father and papa are my greatest honors. Upon graduation from the University Of Washington School Of Dentistry in 1988, I started my first practice in downtown Seattle Columbia Center in 1993. I then moved to Olympia and practice on West Bay Drive on Olympia's beautiful waterfront. With my spare time I have been very active with local schools and continuing dental education, keeping up with my rapidly changing profession. I enjoy gardening, design, and snow skiing, Harley-Davidson motorcycles and vacationing with my children and grandchildren. I love the dental profession and all the great relationships I have gained with all of my patients and staff! I am looking forward to my oldest son joining my practice in 18 months after graduation from the UW dental school and completion of a dental residency.
