Our use of the laser is not limited to procedures inside the mouth: our doctors are also skilled in the esthetic use of the laser for the treatment of sun damage and wrinkles, facial hair removal, removal of moles, and laser skin resurfacing. We have licensed estheticians on staff who perform facials, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and acne treatment as well. Complementing these non-invasive skin procedures, our doctors are also trained to perform Botox®, Collagen injections, and the latest in age-defying technology, Restylane® and Radiesse®.
