Asam Slatniske attended Washington College where he graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelors in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. His community service continued in college where he participated in a program called Neighbor Ride where he drove elderly people who could no longer drive to their appointments and helped them run errands. Adam V. Slatniske also volunteered at Copper Ridge Nursing Home for dementia and Alzheimer patients. Adam participated in many activities for domestic violence awareness and during the blizzard in 2010, he shoveled out the Chestertown Hospital to ensure that EMS could operate safely.

After college, Adam Slatniske went to Nova Southeastern Dental School in South Florida where

even his intense course load did not stop his dedication to community service. He helped run

blood drives, gave blood and platelets as much as allowed and even went on the bone marrow

donor list for people with blood diseases and leukemia. Adam used his newfound skills to give pro bono dental work to the HIV/AIDS and low-income communities. As a dentist, Adam moved

back to Maryland and in his practice, he was one of the only dentists in the area to put the time

and care into providing treatment to the mentally and physically disabled. After joining the

At Parkville Dental practice, Adam’s grandfather suffered a stroke that paralyzed his right side.

Adam traveled twice a week from Parkville to New Windsor to help his grandfather during the

week with his home physical therapy.

Adam Slatniske is surrounded by close friends and family near his home in Maryland. As his past and present demonstrate, he is a passionate and dedicated public servant and dentist.

15. What is your favorite quote?

  1. “Faith can move mountains” which is extracted from the New Testament of The Bible (Mark 11:23) “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, “Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.
  2. Seuss: “Be who you are, and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” I like this quote because it dives into learning how to express your feelings which contributes to positive coping mechanisms.

Tips from Adam Slatniske: Be in the now. It is very easy to be thinking about the future of your business, but focusing on making sure that everything is going well in the present will help set up and give you ideas for the future.

  • Do not be afraid to fail. Everyone has failed at one point in their life. I think that failures are the greatest opportunity to learn and come back better.

Working with other non profits or businesses is a great way to promote yourself while helping others. Oftentimes there is only the appearance of competition when really there is an opportunity for growth.
