Laser Therapy

While lasers might seem like something from the future, dentists have actually been using them to treat a variety of dental issues since 1994.

Laser therapy can be used on a number of dental problems, all with consistent success. Lasers are used to remove tooth decay while simultaneously clearing and shaping the space to be filled. They are also used to combat gum disease, reshaping them while removing bacteria buildup. These lasers are also great for performing biopsies, frenectomies, removing troublesome lesions, or alleviate some of the pain from a canker sore. They can also be used to alleviate sensitivity in your teeth.

These lasers are extremely useful for a number of different activities, whether it is slicing off harmful tissue or vaporizing bacteria deposits. They are typically less painful than traditional methods, reducing the need for anesthesia. The lasers also help alleviate the anxiety some patients feel when going to the dentist’s office because they replace the need for drills. On top of that, lasers cause less swelling and inflammation, and they leave more of the healthy tooth intact when removing cavities.

Dear Patients,

We are pleased to WELCOME YOU BACK! We are practicing SAFE DENTISTRY!

Rest assured that we have taken steps above what was required. After all, your health is our highest priority. We are finally OPEN and look forward to seeing you again soon!


  • When we speak with you regarding your appointment, we will be asking you additional screening questions. Patients who exhibit any symptoms will need to postpone their treatment.
  • When you arrive to your appointment, please wait in your car until your appointment time and bring as little as possible into the office with you.
  • If you have a mask or face covering, we encourage you to wear one to your appointment.
  • We will ask that you sanitize/wash your hands with soap and water upon entering the office and before leaving.
  • There will be a consent form for patients to sign upon arrival and we want you to know that the guidelines in place currently have staff member signing off on a daily consent that ensures they are ready and prepared to provide treatment in the safest possible way.

We want to assure everyone that our office takes the safety and health of our patients, their families, team members and doctors very seriously. Although our operations will be slightly different today than they were previously, we are excited to finally welcome you all back in a slow and safe manner.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of transition to the new normal.

Your Dental Team
