"I've been using the Waterlase dental laser since 2005. Patients young and old were generous with their gratitude when we could do many of their fillings without anesthetic, with minimal discomfort, and limited use of the drill. I had grown accustomed to the reliabilty and affordability of the more basic Waterlase. When my unit was damaged by a power surge, I looked into replacing it with a refurbished unit, but after weighing the options I elected to buy a new C100.

I was immediately impressed with the clean design, the simplicity of operation, and the subtle improvements to the older Waterlase that I was familiar with. Clinically, I found the variable pulse frequency was a valuable feature of the C100. When I increased the pulse rate, I was impressed with faster cutting speeds than I was used to, and the slower pulse rate could be used for more soft tissue applications.

Overall I'm very pleased with the Waterlase C100, and would recommend it to those wanting to improve their practice with laser dentistry."
