diode laser used for hygiene visits.

Does anyone have experience using a diode laser in their practice. Are you using with SRP? Are patients accepting treatment? How are you billing for it? Any thoughts on a particular brand?

I currently use a diode laser for certain patients. I use it at every srp appt and again at their perio maintenance if indicated (bop, no pd resolution, etc) We only have one laser in the office so it’s hard to use it for every single pt that presents w/ bleeding so I generally reserve it for my srp appts. I am hoping that we end up purchasing another laser so that I can make it standard practice for any pt w/ active inflammation/bleeding.
We do not charge for use if it is part of a prophy or perio appt. We do charge to treat lesions such as aphthous ulcers and cold sores.
