Going to the dentist can be scary, especially for kids. But it doesn’t have to be. At Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Denton, Texas, Patrick Ruehle, DDS, and our team keep all of our patients comfortable during their appointments. From our warm, calm, and relaxing setting to our advanced laser dentistry treatments, we address numerous dental issues without pain, discomfort, or scary sensations.

How laser dentistry works

These technological advancements mean you can take care of tooth or gum problems without fear or anxiety. And, you can get right back to your normal routine after your appointment without pain, numbness, or altered speech.

The advantages of laser dentistry 

Our Waterlase iPlus system ensures that kids of all ages — including kids at heart — won't associate a trip to the dentist with pain and fear. Even if your newborn baby or toddler needs dental care, you can rest easy. Their visit at Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry will be comfortable and pain-free, and it won't include scary techniques, such as drilling or shots.
