Dr. Sol Silverman – San Francisco, CA

Dr Sol Silverman"Having used lasers for over 30 years, I can say that the DENTA CO2 laser is a superb piece of technology that I exclusively use in the surgical control of precancerous oral lesions primarily leukoplakias with and without microscopic dysplasia. The successful results are due to its ease of use, control of energy and its precision. Thank you, GPT Dental, for your wonderful machine!"
