Brighton Pediatrics

Dana E. Sless, D.O., F.A.A.P., is the general pediatrician and owner of Brighton Pediatrics. She is a Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Dr. Sless is current with her ABP Maintenance of Certification (MOC).

About the Practice

Our practice consists of two offices: one located in Atlantic City, NJ, and the second in Egg Harbor Township, NJ. In 2003, Dr. Sless completely renovated Brighton Pediatrics in Atlantic City. She restored a 100 year old building in Atlantic City that was dilapidated and falling apart. She constructed a beautiful state-of-the-art facility that was desperately needed to serve the children of that community.

With her big heart and lots of hard work, she created an office space that has become a local landmark. In case you haven’t seen it, it’s at Brighton and Atlantic Avenues, across the street from the Tropicana. It’s pink with purple shutters and big yellow flowers on the building. The inside is just as impressive with space aliens, jungle animals, princess and cupcake-themed exam rooms.

Dr. Sless also started her suburban practice in Egg Harbor Township later that same year. In 2008, her Egg Harbor Township office moved to a brand new location at the Providence Professional Park on English Creek Avenue. The flowers, jungle animals and cupcakes are there, too!

At Brighton Pediatrics, Dr. Sless and her staff practice evidence-based medicine and comprehensive patient management with an emphasis on family education. The practitioners at Brighton Pediatrics have medical privileges at Shore Medical Center and AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.
