I am proud to be a luminary doctor of LiteTouch, the next generation of Er: YAG laser system
Dr. Tzi-Kang Peng, DDS, MSc, PhD / Professor and Chairman, Dental Department, Cheng Hsin General Hospital
I graduated from the National Defense Medical Center in Taipei in 1968, later obtained my doctoral degree (Ph.D.) at the University of New York at Buffalo in 1981. I excelled in researching, teaching, and clinical performance, and was promoted to Professor in 1987. I’ve served as the Chairman and Professor of Dental Department at Cheng Hsin General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan since 2000. I started to explore and evaluating C02 laser products and instruments for soft tissue management seventeen year ago, and began to use Waterlase MD for my practice since 2006. Starting in 2007, I have incorporated the use of LiteTouch Laser for my practice, and I must say it is a wonderful innovation for dental practice.I’ve enjoyed using LiteTouch which allows me to fully utilize the handpiece in patients’ mouths with water spray together. Like other Er lasers used to treat all oral tissues, soft and hard tissue absorbs in water, but LiteTouch can also be used in various periodontal procedures including calculus removal, gingivectomy, pocket elimination, and flap operation without the loss of energy through the oral procedures. In addition to periodontal disease treatments, I also benefit from using LiteTouch to prepare oral surgical site for dental implant placement. With recent advances in this laser direct delivery system, it appears that dental practitioners can now use lasers on both hard and soft tissues with safety and expected outcomes. As a Professor and a Chairman of Dental Department in the hospital, I've always had the drive to learn updated technologies for the last 30 years. In Taiwan many doctors consider me as the pioneer in dentistry. Not only I've started my implant treatments earlier than most Taiwanese doctors, also I've been lecturing on the topics of Er: YAG lasers in major dental events in Taiwan. I am proud to be a luminary doctor of LiteTouch, the next generation of Er: YAG laser system which is not just a technology breakthrough, but also a new point view of dental treatments toward the patients and doctors. LiteTouch's "no fiber" design gives more stable transmitting, and less expense for replacement. Personally, I like its powerful cutting ability that allows me to proceed any hard tissue treatments more easily. Also it's small and well-fit in the office, allowing me more space to move around. I recommend all the laser users to take a look at the innovative LiteTouch, it's different, it's unique, and it's simply the best.
