The LANAPTM Protocol is an FDA-cleared breakthrough in the treatment of periodontal disease.If you have been told that you need scalpel and suture gum surgery, there is now a proven laser treatment alternative to treat gum disease.

The LANAPTM Protocol is a patented laser procedure that greatly reduces the pain and recovery time associated with traditional gum surgery used for treating gum disease. In recent years gum disease has been linked to serious systemic diseases such as:

  • Heart Disease
  • Respiratory Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Increased Risk for Strokes
  • Pre-term & Low Birth-weight Babies

Since my very first trip to Dr. Kim, I have had nothing but great service and good care. No one likes coming to the dentist, but at Drs. Kim and Arrington you know you will receive professional, timely and friendly service.

I have been a patient here since 1978 and I feel like they have helped me keep my teeth. I had laser therapy done in 2011 and got along great with no problems. Dr. Kim is an excellent surgeon and Debbie is a wonderful hygienist! Great experience!!

I came to Dr. Kim and staff with extreme crowding in lower front area. I had advanced gum disease and he evaluated my situation and clearly explained my options. He gave clear instructions on his expectations of me to help bring about the most positive results.From the very start I was pleased with everything about this experience and 2 years later I am amazed at the changes in my mouth. Dr. Kim himself was amazed out the outcome. This is an awesome facility and staff and I have no complaint of any kind. Likely the most positive medical procedure I ever experienced in every way. Highly recommended.

The care and concern that the staff showed was extremely comforting during the time that was already stressful. Their genuineness helped ease the fears that came from the thoughts of potentially losing some of my front teeth caused by an infection. This is truly a practice that I would recommend to anyone.

Patient Review

I experienced Periodontal Laser Surgery a couple of years ago. My teeth and gums and gums are improving dramatically since my initial visit. There are many things I could say about my care at this office... First, I would say how much I truly appreciate the professional attitude, their kindness, and service of each person that I have encountered here. Dr. Kim is personal, professional, and on the cutting edge of all that is dental! Shannon Frye is my hygienist, she is a consummate professional, educating me, and the most caring I have ever met in this field! There are so many other members of this team that should be mentioned here, however, I hope it will suffice to say that they work beautifully together, to give every patient their very best.

Patient Review

Excellent explanation of collateral issues concerning laser surgery because when I had it they handed me some pamphlets that Dr Arrington( added ) went over and it rounded out the information. Had it not been for her explanation I may have been a little bit more negative with my own outlook and not the procedure itself.
