CHESTERFIELD, VA May 8, 2015 – Dr. Thomas Conner, DDS of Thomas Conner and Associates recently joined the Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD).

This demonstrates his dedication to improved patient care, his commitment to continuing education and to the advancement of the safe and effective uses of laser technology for his patients.

Lasers have been used in dentistry since the 1990’s.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration determined that lasers provide safe and effective treatment of a wide range of applications.

Lasers may be utilized in daily patient care for various types of periodontal therapy, removal of tooth decay and cavity preparation, and soft tissue applications like tissue re-contouring, crown and bridge procedures, some endodontic procedures, uncovering partially erupted teeth, release of tissue that causes the tongue tied condition, treating aphthous ulcers, canker sores and lesions associated with the herpes virus, and also to perform biopsy techniques.

Lasers usually allow for bloodless surgical procedures and may destroy bacteria during tissue removal.

For many patients lasers may reduce postoperative pain, swelling and the need for numerous postoperative appointments.

For more information about how lasers can be used in your dental treatment, or to make an appointment, contact Dr. Conner by phone at 804.768.7600 or visit www.drtomconner.com. Thomas Conner and Associates is located at 9510 Iron Bridge Road, Suite 100, in Chesterfield, Va.

Another happy smile...

"I am very appreciative of the dental work Dr. Conner and his staff did for me. My 50th birthday present to myself was to make over my smile and now I feel good about myself everyday when I look in the mirror. Every time someone asks me about the changes in my smile I tell them to go see Dr.Conner over on Rt 10. I always recommend Dr. Conner to my family and friends."
