Beautiful Smiles Through Innovation

Lanap laser dentistry in Salinas at Monterey CoastOur Salinas periodontal team's top priority is to help you maintain the health of your smile for a lifetime. Along with offering a variety of surgical options, Dr. Wetzel is committed to offering conservative and minimally invasive procedures. We are proud to offer LANAP (laser-assisted new attachment procedure) as a treatment option for specific oral health problems.

LANAP promotes faster healing and is an excellent treatment for gum disease. Without using a scalpel or sutures, our team will use a laser to remove the infection from your gums without damaging the tissue in the surrounding areas. LANAP can also promote and encourage natural tissue and bone regrowth.

For specific cases, we can also perform a dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT} scan. This scan allows us to produce a 3D image of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone. With a great view of your dental issues, we are able to perform surgeries like dental implants with more precision and accuracy.

By focusing on innovation and compassion, our Salinas dentists have the solutions you need to restore and repair your smile.

Dr. Wetzel is an absolutely incredible gem of a dental surgeon. In every manner of incredible he and his lovely assistant deserves major props.

I am or was a big chicken of the procedure, but based on a small Asian jaw, awful bite and one horizontally impacted wisdom tooth that was causing bone loss, and another slanted and also impacted I had to do something. Due to difficulty taking time off work I got 7 teeth taken out for braces, bite and health. I was terrified to be honest but the office is beautiful, a great place to drool all over yourself ( more on that later) and the pain is minimal considering 2 impacted wisdom teeth are difficult to manage.

I only remember talking to him and joking with him when all of a sudden my memory lapsed and I woke up feeling no pain and they were almost done. I was in disbelief but I remembered hearing about that. There is super slight soreness now 12 hours post op but it actually is better than the soreness from braces! Isn't that crazy? Lastly as someone who only had dentists aged 55 and older I can tell you don't worry. His youthful appearance belies his ability and incredible expertise. :)

Oh and a Warning! You will drool everywhere and I wish I bought a towel for that. Lol. In any case definitely come see him. The drive is worth his ability and he and his assistant is honest, intelligent, kind and super duper skilled!
Tracy is also super kind and the entire staff is great!

I will trust him not only for my first surgery but every one thereafter!

Great periodontist. Very professional and competent. Prices are reasonable compared to similar services elsewhere. Reception staff and nurses are very kind and takes time to explain everything and address all concerns. I highly recommend this office.

Dr. Wetzel is a real professional as well as a likeable person. You don't always get that in an oral surgeon. LOL. His staff is super friendly and you really feel that the whole office cares about your well being. Also, Dr. Wetzel instills me with confidence. I trust him with any procedure. So far I have had a bone graft, an extraction, and a large gum graft. I am looking toward to two dental implants and another gum graft and bone graft. You can tell he is really focused on the task at hand when he is doing a procedure and he takes surgery to the level of an art. Clearly, he has the experience and skills to improvise when he runs into snafus. I had a question about my pain after my last surgery and called his after-hours emergency number, and he called me back within 2 minutes. You can't ask for more than that. Also, if you have Delta Dental, then Tracy will lay out your whole plan for all of your work and tell you how much is covered by Delta and how much you will have left to pay. No surprises. Plus, Dr. Wetzel's new office is super cool. The design is tres chic;) I wish he did regular dentistry too.
