Dr. Scott Quandt – Your Laser Dentist
Dr. Quandt has used laser dentistry in Green Bay for over fifteen years to provide his patients with the least invasive, exceptional dental care available in modern dentistry. As a laser dentist, Dr. Quandt uses the Waterlase and EPIC dental lasers to reduce the pain and trauma experienced with traditional dental drills. With laser dentistry, Dr. Quandt can even perform many procedures without the need for anesthetic. These same lasers can also be used to treat gum disease more comfortably and efficiently without the need for traditional gum surgery.
What Exactly is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry uses a focused beam of light for various dental applications, ranging from removing tooth decay to treating gum disease. Different types of lasers can be used depending on the procedure being done. As a laser dentist, Dr. Quandt is able to provide you with the least invasive treatment possible.
Which Procedures Can Be Done With Laser Dentistry?
Dr. Quandt can use a soft tissue laser for the treatment of gum tissue and a hard tissue laser for the treatment of the teeth and bone. The Biolase WaterLase® and Epic™ are versatile lasers that can work for many procedures. Because water and laser energy are used instead of a dental drill that causes heat and friction, many procedures can be done without numbing the entire area.
Common procedures dental lasers are used for include:
- Removing tooth decay
- Preparing for an implant
- Removing suspicious oral growths
- Treating gum disease
- Treating cold sores
- Teeth whitening

Patients experience a much quicker healing time with the minimally invasive laser techniques as well as less bleeding, less pain, and less inflammation.
