Peter Rechmann, DMD, PhD, Professor of Preventative and Restorative Dental Science, University of California, San Francisco “You’ve got a cavity.” Dreaded words from the dentist because that means that means needles, drills, and, for many of us, anxiety. But Dr. Peter Rechmann would like to end the days of “drill and fill” at the dentist’s office. What does he propose, instead? Lasers. And not just to fix cavities, but also to prevent them in the first place.
