Laser Dental Imitators

There are a lot of new practices springing up that claim to be "Laser Dental Centers," but there are a few important things to take into consideration about them.

First, even though these dentists claim to practice "Laser Dentistry," they may generally use their lasers on a very limited basis and may have little or no training on how to properly use them.

Then there is the matter of the dental materials that the laser dental imitators use, which are usually the same, conventional, non-biocompatible and potentially toxic compounds used in normal dentistry.

Even so-called "biological" dentists that use lasers in some of their procedures have limited knowledge, experience and skill to use their tools to their full advantage.

Dr. Richard T. Hansen, owner and director of Comprehensive Dental Center Associates and Laser Dental Center - Fullerton was the originator of the Laser Dental Center concept, and helped to develop many of the Dental Lasers and their associated techniques that are used today. In the 1990's, he was one of only five dentists in the country selected by the FDA to test and try out dental lasers for FDA approval. He is considered one of the world's foremost authorities on dental lasers.
This link will take you to our "Video Archives" page, where there are several video clips from the 1990's featuring Dr. Hansen, one of the originators of laser dentistry, as he introduced the new technology to the world.

Dr. Hansen has taken years to study with Medical Doctors and Naturopathic Doctors about the various effects of dental compounds, as well as the oral immune system and its preservation, and how the body interacts with the oral systems. His understanding of the "Mind/Body/Mouth connection" and the Pathways of Disease comes from years of research and study with some of the best medical and holistic experts in the country.

In addition, he is a past faculty member of UCLA's School of Dentistry where he taught restorative dental techniques, and has lectured all over the world about lasers and their applications in dentistry, as well as the connection between the mouth and whole-body health.

Dr. Hansen has been practicing his art since 1976, and has been actively using dental lasers in his practice for fifteen years. He has been featured on several local and network television news and lifestyle programs, and has several high-profile patients who swear by him and his techniques.

Dr. Hansen's associate, Dr. Andrew Yoon, has worked with Dr. Hansen under his direct supervision for years, and has been thoroughly trained and educated in all of Dr. Hansen's philosophies and techniques. Dr. Yoon is truly an asset to Comprehensive Dental Center/Laser Dental Center - Fullerton, and is qualified to train others in this expanding field.

Dr. Hansen is the ONLY dentist with a "Laser Dental Center" who can offer these kinds of credentials, and this needs to be taken into consideration when considering a "Laser Dental" practice.

Don't be fooled by Laser Dental imitators or "wannabe's."
