They didn’t have laser technology when Dr. John Rynearson’s grandfather practiced dentistry, or when his father practiced it. Diagnodent laser cavity detection wasn't even around a quarter century ago, when Dr. Rynearson himself became the third in his family to become a dentist. But since he began practicing, Dr. Rynearson has kept pace with modern dental advancements, and today, in addition to using laser diodes to detect cavities and annoy cats, he arms his practice with such advanced tools as ViziLite Plus lesion detection, 3i dental implants, and Kör permanent whitening. Even Dr. Rynearson's waiting room has been updated with technology. Patients sit in turn-of-the-century chairs and surf the free WiFi or sip complimentary coffee. Younger patients romp in the play area, taking advantage of the Playstation and vast array of movies, games, and invisible snacks for imaginary friends.
