The biggest surprise of my laser journey has been the parents who have also been very receptive to the Waterlase. They often ask where they can find a Waterlase Dentist for their own dental needs or if our office would serve them too! Relieving parent fears is a large part of my calling, and one of the most rewarding benefits of using minimally invasive technology they can trust. I believe communication plays a huge role when it comes to educating parents about our cutting-edge technology and makes them more comfortable with the level of dental care we provide. My biggest takeaway is seeing a happy child and a relieved parent leaving my office.
One of the things that are most important to me as a pediatric laser dentist, is to continue to learn and master new techniques with the laser. One of my favorite procedures is laser-assisted frenectomies. Since using Waterlase, there is a notable difference from the traditional scalpel – everything from better visual access, more precise and deliberate removal of just the tissue I want to target, less bleeding, minimal to no discomfort, and faster healing – I could go on… but the results are beautiful!
