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

Patient Review by Mary S

I used to have high dental anxiety coming to the dentist and, since I've been coming here, there is very little. I love the way my teeth feel when I leave after a cleaning. I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery with Dr. Kim and he was able to save my teeth.

Patient Review by Gayla L

Shannon is wonderful! She has the "touch" I like not too heavy, not too soft--just right! Dr. Kim did Laser surgery and my mouth has been great. Dr. Kim has been very great/nice to accommodate my mouth needs and just very helpful when i need him. I am quite pleased with my gums and the overall procedure I have had. The staff have been very kind with filing my insurance and helpful with my appointments. Dr. Kim's wife, Dr. Heather was helpful in explaining what was best for my gums/mouth. Really enjoy coming here.

Patient Review by Gordon P

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.

Patient Review by Tammy R

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 by Merry G

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.
