|Robert H. Gregg, DDS is a former faculty member at UCLA School of Dentistry’s Hospital Dentistry Division. An international lecturer, his works on FR Nd :YAG lasers for root canal and soft-tissue therapy and on practice performance boosting have been published in leading professional journals. He is a co-developer of the Laser Curriculum Guidelines. Dr. Gregg has attained his Mastership status and is a Certified Dental Laser Educator with the Academy of Laser Dentistry.
Together with Dr. Delwin K. McCarthy (see below), Dr. Gregg co-founded Millennium Dental Techologies. These pioneering laser clinicians were fascinated by the possibilities of lasers and dentistry soon after their first introduction. Over many years of laser dentistry and the performance of thousands of procedures, they gained an extraordinary understanding of laser/tissue interaction.
Early in their experience, they visualized the potential of the Free Running Pulsed Nd:YAG laser for use in periodontal therapy and developed a “recipe” that would replace the scalpel/suture flap surgery that patients dread. This vision, and more than a decade of research, clinical trials and dedication, resulted in the founding of Millennium Dental Technologies, and the development of the PerioLase® MVP-7™ , the most significant achievement in soft tissue dental lasers since their inception, and Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure® (LANAP®), the first patented periodontal procedure. To help train dentists across the country in their technologies, Drs. Gregg and McCarthy also developed a 3-day Laser Boot Camp™, which recently received special recognition from the American Dental Association.
