Laser Dentistry

Your Dental Laser Dentist in Fargo ND

Lasers offer many advantages in dentistry. For example, in some cases they can eliminate the need to drill or administer anesthesia, allowing you to enjoy a more relaxed cosmetic dental experience. Laser dentistry procedures also tend to be more precise, and can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies. A dental laser can even be used to reduce the amount of bacteria in diseased gum tissue and control bleeding during surgery.

Dental Laser Technology Is Safe & Effective

Lasers have actually been used in dentistry since the early 1990s. When used with proper training, they are a completely safe and effective tool for a wide range of dental procedures. Through continuing education courses and technological advances, our laser dentist Dr. Dennis Hetland is able to offer you the latest in dental care at our practice in Fargo, near Moorhead.

Making smiles bright extends beyond the doors of Designer Smiles, especially each March through June when we proudly participate in the Smiles For Life campaign. During this time, 100 percent of the proceeds from teeth whitening procedures go to children’s charities, including right here in the F-M area. This year, we have selected Haley's Hope Dyslexia Learning Center as the local charity of choice.

We make helping children and bright smiles easy—simply contact us to schedule your teeth whitening appointment. You get a brighter, whiter smile, and children get a reason to smile, as well. If you are already happy with your bright smile, simply ask about the other ways you can participate in helping children.Dr. Hetland is a Smiles For Life participating dentist in Fargo, North Dakota to benefit children's charities.
