We’ve invested in Diagnodent, a revolutionary laser that allows us to diagnose and subsequently treat dental decay in its earliest stage. Even very small cavities are detected at the beginning stage, enabling us to protect and preserve the tooth substance.
It is the best of both worlds; stopping the spread of tooth decay at a very early stage, which translates into smaller fillings, therefore preserving more of the natural tooth.
Using Diagnodent technology allows us to detect and treat more areas of decay sooner and with more precision. Furthermore, it requires no x-rays and is a very comfortable procedure, most often done without any anaesthetic.
This system allows us to use micro-dentistry, also known as Drill-less Dentistry which is a minimally invasive filling procedure.
A study conducted by Dr. Lussi of general dentists in Berne University, Switzerland correctly diagnosed cavities in only 57% of all cases. The same group achieved an impressive success rate of 90% with the Diagnodent. In fact, Diagnodent was far more accurate than any other method in the study including X-rays.
Proportion of “correct diagnoses” using various diagnostic methods (in the case of seemingly intact occlusal surfaces).
For these reasons, we’ve invested in DIAGNODENT: a revolutionary new, thorough means of detecting cavities, so your exam can be fast, easy, and nearly imperceptible.

I have been going to Dr. Wolch for over 30 years and I highly recommend him. I have to drive across the city to get to him but it is worth the...- Lois
