For example, I have an 8-year old girl that embodies how the laser has changed my dental practice and patient experience. Our patient had multiple carious lesions that were difficult to properly treat in the office and recurrently was recommended for general anesthesia dental treatment. She became so frightened to visit the dentist because of the multiple failed attempts to treat her. Her mother brought her to our office for a second opinion and described her dental experience to be so distressing that she would have panic attacks at the thought of visiting the dentist. After a thorough discussion about the Waterlase dental laser, she became comfortable enough to allow Princess Poppy to treat her. We were able to treat and restore all four quadrants of her teeth in a comfortable fashion using the Waterlase. She was fond of the “pop pop pop” sound of the laser and now she actually enjoys coming to our dental practice. Equally important, her mom was relieved and grateful that she has a happy cavity-free little girl.
The Waterlase dental laser has changed my dental practice. It has reduced the amount of anesthesia, operating room visits and expenses, meanwhile providing a speedy comfortable experience to my patients. We can now perform minimally invasive dental treatments that result in a happy child, happy parent and happy practice. At Blooming Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we pride ourselves in providing a positive and tranquil patient experience. When they leave our office, we want them to want to come back with excitement.
I would encourage all pediatric dentists to consider the use of the Waterlase dental laser. The benefits have helped grow my practice, however, more importantly, has provided a positive patient experience.
