Dr. Dylan K. Hall

We are pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Dylan K. Hall to Marion Family Dental. Dr Hall will be joining our team, Monday, September 14, 2020. He is excited to meet our amazing patients.

Dr. Hall comes to us from Lumberton, TX. He received a bachelor’s degree in biology with a minor in chemistry before attending the University of Louisville School of Dentistry where he earned his DMD.

While an undergraduate, Dr. Hall set three collegiate football records, which he still holds, during his four years of play. He enjoys working with his hands, which is one of the reasons he chose dentistry. He likes to help his patients transform their smiles from start to finish.

Dr Hall enjoys going to work every day and seeing his patients. He loves being able to help his patients have the very best oral health possible.

Patient interaction is one of the best parts of Dr. Hall’s day-to-day. Patients love that Dr. Hall connects with them on a personal level and is genuine in his conversations. He truly cares about your smile, and you’ll feel that as you meet with him!

In his free time, Dr. Hall enjoys traveling and spending time with his wife, Mackenzie and two children.

Dr. Slavik, DDS

Dr. Slavik

Dr. Slavik is from Chattanooga, TN but has been living in Memphis obtaining her DDS degree from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Dr. Slavik is drawn to dentistry due to the impact she is able to have on her patients. Giving back someone their smile is the most rewarding part of her job. She enjoys getting to know people and helping them achieve their smile goals.

In her free time, Dr. Slavik loves to spend time outdoors hiking and camping which is why western NC first caught her attention. She also enjoys yoga, baking, putting together cheese boards for her friends, and exploring new restaurants.

Dr. Garrett Gunnel, DDS

Dr. Garrett Gunnell

The thing that excites me most about dentistry is that I never know what amazing challenge awaits when I see a patient for the first time. No two patients are the same and it’s like a puzzle I get to solve to help each patient to their satisfaction. My patients come from every walk of life, and it always amazes me how happy they all are. No matter where they are or what is going on, they have good attitudes. This always humbles me and makes me appreciate all of my blessings.

I take being a dental professional very seriously. My patients come to me needing my help with dental issues and place their trust in my abilities. I try to treat everyone as I would treat my own family—by giving them my professional opinion and allowing them to make the choices that are right for their unique situation.


I was born in Mesa, Arizona where I also finished my undergraduate studies. I then pursued my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Indiana University School of Dentistry

Dentistry is always evolving and I like to be on the cutting edge. This requires me to participate in many continuing education courses and be active in professional organizations like the American Dental Association and the North Carolina Dental Association.


My wife Lexy and I have three sons, Grant, William, and Benson. They mean everything to me and are the reason I work so hard to be a better person every day.

We live in Arden, North Carolina, and love it here! We enjoy hiking and taking in the beautiful mountain scenery. My hobbies include fishing, camping, and sports—anything that gets me outside!
