Dr Nico Verloop - SA's latest MSc in Laser Dentistry Graduate!

BIOLASE WaterLase Trainer for South Africa

Dentist, Dr Nico Verloop recently achieved his MSc in Laser Dentistry, one of only a handful in South Africa. In addition to his latest post-graduate professional qualification under the supervision of Genoa University, Dr Verloop is an experienced and trained, now highly qualified specialist in laser techniques that are internationally recognised as "state of the art".

Dr Verloop is also the certified BIOLASE WaterLase trainer for South Africa.  Nico believes there are many important benefits associated with WaterLase Dental laser technology; “Standard dental treatment using mechanical means is often accompanied by fear and pain for the patient. Although pain may be reduced by local anaesthesia, fear of the needle, noise, and vibration of the tools cause discomfort for many patients. With WaterLase, for the first time many common dental procedures can be performed without local anaesthesia. WaterLase allows the clinician to unobtrusively do dental work while reducing bacteria and cross-contamination.  WaterLase can also be successfully and safely used on children, the elderly, special needs individuals, chemo patients and pregnant women, unlike some prescribed medication,” says Dr Verloop.

South African distributor of the the Californian-based Biolase WaterLase iPlus, SciVision Medical, lead by Peter Doubell says "Dr Nico Verloop continues to raise the bar for South African dentistry, inspiring up and coming dental practitioners and giving his patients a "wow experience."  We thank him for his commitment to his profession, his fellow BIOLASE dentists and his patients."
