Our Dental Implants Practice Story

We owed a huge thanks to our Plantation and Broward County community in particular to the city of Plantation for allowing us in helping them with our sedation, All-On-4 ® dental implant procedures, and gum laser treatment. We started up in private practice in 2005 and we have been on an epic ride ever since. We hope the residents of Plantation would continue to be a part of our story for many more years to come.

Experiencing life from having dental issues is emotionally exhausting for many patients. Our great satisfaction in serving our wonderful patients with their journey of having healthy teeth for a new smile, especially when patients’ tears of happiness are present, is difficult to put into words. Every patient has a story to tell…

When we met our patients in real life, we try to unearth their dental and life stories and tell our own as implant and sedation dentists. The end goal is to find out if we can help them.

In this process of knowing each other tap into the underlying reason patients develop dental issues and why they have decided to come to see us – to get to be the very best version of themselves; a version they have always had within them that got lost along the way.

Our Mission

We are interested in helping one patient at a time on their journey of achieving healthy teeth and gums for life

Dr. Karla Jaquez, a top-rated LANAP® doctor servicing Plantation and Fort Lauderdale, has received advanced training in the use of the PerioLase® MVP-7™. This extremely precise laser targets and eliminates bacteria between the gum and teeth. In LANAP® laser therapy, Dr. Jaquez uses gentle pulses of laser light to destroy bacteria and diseased tissue. She also breaks up tartar deposits in the gumline and uses techniques to encourage reattachment of gum tissue and bone regeneration. There is no cutting or sutures involved.

LANAP® is the preferred and highly effective gum disease treatment alternative to conventional and invasive osseous surgery. Unlike osseous surgery, LANAP® utilizes a leading dental laser to remove diseased tissue and bacteria so that healthy gum tissue is not cut or harmed during the treatment process.
