Dr. Sathish G Palayam DDS
Dr. Sathish G Palayam DDS, received his Doctor in Dental Surgery from The University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, combined his lifelong passions for medicine and computer technology, and emerged as a revolutionary force in contemporary dentistry. While implementing cutting edge technology in his own private practice, he also travels the world educating thousands of dentists around the globe on integrating two exciting, fast-growing technologies.
Dr. Sathish is one of only a handful of dentists in the state of Massachusetts trained on LANAP an advanced laser-assisted Periodontal osseous surgery and LAPIP, an Implant surgical protocol along with 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), as well as its application in surgical dentistry with predictable outcomes. These technologies together allow Dr. Palayam to produce a 3D model of the patient so he can simulate and perfect the dentistry on a virtual model first, and then transfer it to the patient for treatment. Both systems work great independently but a magical thing happens when they communicate with each other. The end result is absolute precision. We can deliver results within a fraction of a hair, or 100 microns of accuracy (100 microns is one tenth of a millimeter). We still use our hands, of course, but taking treatment and patient comfort to the next level. Dr. Palayam travels extensively in the U.S., to train clinicians on how to use the equipment. He is a member of the Massachusetts Dental society training New dentists on dental office compliance and standard of care for better and more predictable treatment outcomes.
Dr. Palayam is not only involved in educating surgeons in the field of 3D imaging, computer generated implant surgery but also in the art of providing virtually “Painless Dental Anesthesia” which is the most common fear to visiting a dentist worldwide in various dental applications. His road to becoming known for establishing Laser Periodontal and Implant surgical procedures many of the techniques and protocols for digital implantology began with his training from his mentor a world-renowned Periodontist, Dr. Raymond Yakna.
