Skip the Drill and the Shot!
Dr. Nam is happy to offer the best of what’s new in dental technology with laser dentistry. Dr. Nam is currently the only dentist in Colorado we are aware of that can offer you this high-tech laser treatment. Laser dentistry is accomplishing what dentists (and scientists) have been working hard to accomplish for years — making a cavity procedure drill-free and shot-free. The laser allows Dr. Nam to treat patients without injections in 99% of cases. This makes for a much less traumatic experience for most children. Our young patients also receive their dental care in a fraction of the time they were accustomed to from traditional drill methods. Laser dentistry is so much more comfortable for our patients and there is no time lost waiting to feel your face again! The numb feeling following traditional cavity treatment can be very bothersome to many children. Now kids get excited about coming to the dentist. Kids think the laser is cool!

- Often no drill or needle for fillings
- Increased bond strength for fillings

Straighten Your Teeth with Your Style
Hardy Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics in Erie offers a variety of aesthetic treatment options for your orthodontic needs. Dr. T.C. Hardy commits 100% of his orthodontic skills and continuing education solely to orthodontic care and stays current on the most advanced treatments, methods and tools currently available to you. Advances in the field of dentistry and technology now offer you more than just the traditional braces route of care. Our child and adult patients love the aesthetic brackets option that our practice offers. Aesthetic brackets don’t just allow you the ability to control the way your brackets look; they also perform better while reducing your risk for bacteria build-up around the bracket. Aesthetic brackets are precision-engineered to offer you better strength, easier bonding and cleaner debonding. Kids love the ceramic, clear braces option because adding color bands really adds that fun, pop of color to their smiles. Invisalign and Incognito orthodontic treatments also offer yet another way you can straighten your teeth without having to sacrifice your smile during the process.
