Customer Testimonials

testimonial author
As a pediatric dentist with 15 years of laser experience, including diode and erbium classes of lasers, I now exclusively use the LightScalpel CO2 laser for every infant soft tissue surgery. The adjustments for various tissue types and the exact precision of ablation are unparalleled. No other laser allows for this fine surgical control. I would never treat a patient with any other laser.

The LightScalpel is the finest instrument I have used for performing tongue and lip-tie surgeries as well as many other procedures. I use it at least four times a day. Before, we were using a diode laser and it doesn’t even compare. Before, a frenectomy would take around a minute or more. Now with the LightScalpel, it’s about 20 seconds. The moms report less pain for their babies (they eat better and are less fussy). In addition, the service from the company is first class. I had an issue with the laser after the first month, which they told me is rare, but they overnight shipped another unit and repaired mine at no cost. They are easy to contact and ask questions, and Gail, the sales rep, flew to our office for a no obligation test drive which was a great help. She showed us how to set it up and made sure we were comfortable with the settings. She helped us get comfortable using it on nine patients while she was there coaching us and showing us the features. When I have any questions, Peter, the owner, is very accessible and responds promptly. An all-around classy company that stands by their great product.
