Is Laser Dentistry Safe?
Laser dentistry is considered to be very safe. It is just as safe as performing procedures with more traditional tools. Just like traditional tools, however, there are a few risks associated with the laser. One of these risks is potential damage to your eyes.

We are highly trained and experienced in using the laser, and can take all necessary precautions to ensure the utmost safety and optimal results.
