Dr. Linden’s Qualifications
Dr. Eric Linden is one of the first LANAP practitioners on the east coast. With over 30 years experience in periodontal specialty practice, he now performs LANAP laser procedures every day. He has treated thousands of patients, performing tooth extractions, implants, and other periodontal procedures with LANAP and LAPIP.
Unfortunately, most periodontists still treat advanced gum disease with traditional surgery which is better treated with LANAP. Although Dr. Linden still utilizes traditional surgery in some cases, a majority of his patients qualify for the LANAP protocol.
Many of Dr. Linden’s patients are direct referrals from other dentists, periodontists, medical professionals, and educated patients seeking the most advanced, innovative, and least invasive techniques available to treat gum disease. Dr. Linden is currently preparing clinical cases for publication. More about Dr. Linden
