Dr. Slaugh purchased the practice from Dr. Pedersen in August of 2011. He received a bachelors in Business Management from BYU-Idaho, and his Doctorate of Optometry from Indiana University.

He most recently was working in Phoenix, AZ, and was excited about the opportunity to move to California-since his wife is from Laquinta.
