Pediatric Dentistry

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recognizes the judicious use of lasers as a beneficial instrument in providing dental restorative and soft tissue procedures for infants, children, and adolescents, including those with special health care needs.

Fast, Safe & Effective 

Fotona lasers are the ideal tool for performing hard and soft tissue procedures on pediatric patients. Unlike traditional techniques in pediatric dentistry, lasers enable quick and effective treatments to be performed, often without the use of a scalpel or sutures, resulting in a positive experience for both children and parents alike.

Key laser pediatric treatments include frenectomies (tongue tie and lip ties), precise decay elimination for fillings, crowns, gingivectomies, direct pulp capping, pulpotomy and more!

Clean and Precise

While traditional use of drills can cause a smear layer, using the LightWalker is effective and precise, offering debridement without creating a smear layer, maximizing the preservation of healthy tooth matter and gum, and minimizing the chance of recurrence or leftover decay.


Planning a visit to the dentist can be a traumatic experience for most children. However, for dentists that offer the LightWalker’s market-leading dual-wavelength technology, patients and parents can enjoy a more pleasant, comfortable and effective treatment, oftentimes requiring little to no anesthesia.

I strongly rely on the precision, efficacy, and the high success rate, not to mention the gentleness for the patient that the LightWalker brings to my practice.
