Redefining the Patient Experience with the Solea® Dental Laser

It is no secret not only children, but even adults fear going to the dentist; in fact, the American Dental Association (ADA) once addressed this issue by providing a compilation of statistics that spoke to the adult patient’s frequency of visits. The findings revealed that in 2014, 52.3% of adults saw their dentist every six months in the last few years, 15.4% reported once per year, and 11.0% said they went every two to three years. However, most astounding was the fact that an overwhelming 21.3% confessed that it had been quite some time since they have sat in an operatory chair. We could speculate as to why one-in-five adult patients chose to avoid their two annual visits; perhaps they did not have the availability, or maybe it had to do with something else: the fear of encountering the dreaded drill.
