Dr. Lawrence Lesperance gives his patients plenty of reasons to smile.

Dr. Lawrence Lesperance and his team of dental professionals are dedicated to helping patients achieve and maintain a beautiful, healthy smile that will last a lifetime.

With more than 27 years of experience in dentistry, Dr. Lesperance utilizes the latest technologies available. He provides comprehensive dental care, including cosmetic and restorative treatments, to children and adults in his modern Coral Gables dental office.

Lesperance’s patients often see dramatic results with treatments such as bonding, veneers, bridges, implants, Zoom Advanced Power Tooth Whitening and Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces. Lesperance has achieved Preferred Provider Status as an Invisalign dentist.

Lesperance is one of the few dentists in Miami-Dade that offers CEREC One- Visit Crowns. With CEREC’s technology, an all-ceramic crown or filling is milled by a computer to fit a tooth precisely in one visit.

“This advanced technology eliminates impressions, temporary crowns and multiple visits,” said Lesperance. “Patients who have had crowns placed the traditional way are pleasantly surprised by the technology, convenience and results.”

General dental services offered include check-ups, dental cleanings, gum treatments, fluoride treatments, composite resin fillings and root canals. Highly-skilled hygienists take time to educate patients about personal care of teeth at home. A periodontist, or gum specialist, is on staff to aid in treating the supporting structures of the teeth, including the gums, roots and bone. The periodontist also places dental implants.

To help diagnose any problems, Lesperance uses state-of-the-art digital X-rays that emit 95 percent less radiation than conventional X-rays. For patients nervous about dental treatments, he uses nitrous oxide, a safe and reliable method to help make a dental visit a comfortable experience.

Lesperance was born and raised in Coral Gables and graduated from Columbus High School. After obtaining degrees from Brown and Emory universities, he returned home to Miami to complete his residency at Miami Beach’s Mt. Sinai Medical Center and an advanced dentistry program at the prestigious Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne.

“This is my home, I grew up here, my family and friends are here and I’ve raised my three daughters here,” he said. And, his patients are here. Lesperance has cared for generations of Miami families. His office, at 4950 Le Jeune Road, is home to a skilled team that has more than 100 years of combined dental experience. Two hygienists overlap to serve the needs of busy families.

“Family members can come in together and have their appointments at the same time,” he said. “We ensure that children have a good dental experience to lay the foundation for healthy habits for life. Bubble gum fluoride, a trip to the treasure box and special care make a child’s dental visit positive.”

Patients receive emails and texts to remind them of their dental appointments. They also enjoy Lesperance’s referral program, which rewards patients who refer family and friends to the practice. Both the current and new patient receives a $25 credit on billing.

“We take care of people, and they become like family,” said Lesperance. For more information, call 305-665- 1263 or go online at <www.LawrenceLesperanceDDS.com>.
