Your first visit is key
Your first appointment is key – it will help us assess your condition as well as provide a forum for discussing your needs. What should you expect? A thoughtful, humanizing experience that leads to an intelligent course of treatment and a beautiful smile.
Show us your smile
During this visit, we will perform an oral examination and a series of diagnostics such as digital radiographs and photographs of your jaws and teeth. These records will help us diagnose any periodontal issues and lead us into a discussion about treatment options.
An open dialog
Questions? Ask us anything and everything you can think of. That way, we will be able to create an appropriate treatment plan commensurate with – and likely to exceed – your expectations.

In just one decade, we have moved from utilizing lasers to treat periodontal diseases to utilizing a specific laser protocol to hone our approach in the treatment of peri-implantitis, MRONJ and now cosmetic de-pigmentation of gingiva.
By adapting the wound healing modification of the Periolase laser and the LANAP protocol, Dr. Lehrman discussed how the specific ND:YAG wavelength allows the clinician to modify the body’s own wound healing apparatus. Diseased or unwanted tissues are targeted for specific removal, while healthy connective tissue remains and allows the body to capitalize on this healing moment. Dr. Neal Lehrman, through a discussion of both laser physics and case review, demonstrated the ability of this remarkable protocol and its corollary procedures to the Department of Periodontics – Post-Graduate Division, NYU College of Dentistry.

We are pleased to announce the publication of the new online journal The Wavelength at www.thewavelength.org. This publication, founded by Dr Lehrman and his Colleague Dr. Larry Gelb is helping to usher in a new era of collaborative dentistry by bringing together both clinicians and patients alike into a marketplace place of ideas dedicated to the discussion of and advancement of LANAP and its entail related procedures.

Dr. Lehrman Spoke to a group of 60 doctors and dentists on this history of LANAP- its scientific background, its applications and potential for evolution in the care of an ever increasing population of patients who present with periodontal and epri-implant disease. A scientific rationale as well as case review component was included. This approach, now widely accepted as more than an alternative to care, is revolutionizing the way we can offer to treat patients who present with periodontal breakdown, particularly those who are medically compromised or present with specific esthetic concerns.
