Dr Chris Lauf
Dr Chris Lauf has adopted the newest dental technology including laser dentistry which he has been using and perfecting for nearly 20 years. Laser dentistry is the modern, gentle and precise alternative to the stereotypical image of dentistry. This has helped calm the fears of his patients in Brisbane and around the country. With the use of lasers in dentistry, many times there is no need for an injection to numb the area or use of traditional drill, meaning restorative treatments such as fillings can be performed accurately and gently. The beauty of dental lasers is that they target decay in enamel very precisely, leaving as much healthy tooth and tissue intact resulting in far less discomfort.

Dr Lauf has advanced qualifications with Progressive Orthodontic Seminars and the Implant Certificate Program at the Brener Implant Institute. For over a decade, he has been performing orthodontics as a highly skilled dentist as well as implant surgeries achieving consistent, safe and remarkable results for his patients. Operating as a fully independent general dentist he has complete control on quality of service and technology, always selecting the most effective, gentle and modern materials with the highest level of evidence to support their quality.
Visualise your dental results with digital imaging and precision planning
Dr Lauf likes to ensure all of his patients are well informed. He regards good communication and effective use of modern technology as critical to ensuring optimal outcomes for each and every patient.
“Technology has improved our ability to show what we propose through digital imaging and 3D scans. This gives us more predictable results particularly when a patient comes to us with very specific requests.”
