Waterlase All Tissue Laser

About Waterlase all-tissue laser from Sci Vision


  • Lasers have an ability to seal blood vessels thereby achieving haemostasis
  • Lasers seal lymphatic vessels, so decrease post surgical swelling
  • They seal nerve fibres thereby reducing operative and post operative pain
  • Reduces mechanical trauma to tissue
  • Less scarring and greater precision because of the mono chromic coherence qualities
  • Reduces bacterical counts thereby promoting predictable healing with minimal post operative inflammation


The Waterlase all-tissue laser combines laser energy with a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures – without the heat, vibration and pressure associated with the conventional dental drill. With many procedures, it's possible to use less anaesthetic, and often no anaesthetic at all. Waterlase dentistry is used for Cavities, Oral Surgery and Mouth Sores, Repair Treatment for Gum Disease and Peri-Implantitis, Endodontic cleaning and disinfection, and being so gentle and precise, it is ideal for Pediatric Dentistry for kids of all ages.  Learn more about Waterlase dentistry.

The EPIC X laser (soft tissue) specialises in providing a more effective and gentle experience in Oral Surgery, Periodontal Treatment and disinfection, Endodontic disinfection as well as excellent Laser Pain Therapy and Laser Teeth Whitening (faster and with less chance of any sensitivity).

Specialist Recommendations

Dr Eric Beaumont

Maxillo-Facial and Oral Surgeon (DENT)

It's hard to believe that it's over twenty years we have worked together, and it has always been a pleasure. It has been a joy to treat the oral surgical patients that you have referred to us. They present as patients highly devoted to your practice and always receive excellent dental care. Your practice is an example to the dental profession of the highest level of skill and care. May our professional relationship continue!

Dr Rhonin R Naidoo


 I have worked with Dr Coetzee and his patients who required specialist periodontal and oral medical care for almost 20 years.  Dr Coetzee practices high quality dentistry to the highest ethical standards.  He works as a team player and is always up to date with the latest cutting-edge knowledge - his patients interests are always foremost.

Dr John Dancaster


Both Francois and myself worked under our principal dentist Miki Baranyay over 25 years ago. Francois has been an excellent mentor to me particularly in my Christian walk. I am very proud to be both his friend and colleague. As a friend he has been true, honest and gentle. I know he is the same as a dentist where I could add the word excellence to his work. All the best Francois as you and your patients enjoy the prime years of your life in Kloof Park and Durban.


Dr Renton Tindall


 I recently  had some fairly extensive work carried out by Dr Coetzee and I would like to highly recommend him for his very gentle approach and his attention to detail. I generally recommend Dr Coetzee to my patients who after their orthodontic treatment are in need of special aesthetic dental care.

Dr Craig Kenmuir


Dr Coetzee, whom I have known for the past 25 years, has always shown a very thorough and professional approach to the treating of his patients, is familiar with the latest in dental technology and materials and is passionate about creating a pleasant and relaxed environment for his patients. Those patients that have been referred to our orthodontic practice are always well informed, exhibit an excellent standard of dentistry and have good oral hygiene , all of which makes our job that much easier and rewarding. A combination of good technical skills as well as a pleasing bed side manner are attributes which his patients enjoy.

No more trying not to smile in photos. No more cringing during video calls. No more avoiding public speaking opportunities… 

I thank my good fortune every day for that time I threw myself at the mercy of Google and starting looking for a dentist who could help me. The condition and appearance of my teeth were having an increasingly negative impact on my physical and emotional health, and I knew that it would take a special category of dentist to assist me.

That was when I came across Dr. Francois Coetzee’s website, and what I saw there matched with what I thought I needed. Even so, I made my first appointment filled with trepidation, due to the outcome of previous, negative experiences I’ve had in trying to get my teeth sorted out.

It is now a few years later, and it has been an interesting road! Not always easy, mainly due to my own fears, but I can attest to having been in the best possible hands, and that Dr. Coetzee and his team have given me the best possible care and outdone my expectations of what could be done for my teeth.

During many visits, I’ve been astonished by advances made in dental technology, and Dr. Coetzee seems to be an early adopter of many of these. I also appreciated his insight in that, apart from attending to the immediate problems I was having, he looked into the future: what we could expect in terms of changes to one’s jaw in terms of aging, the best strategies to use now to ensure the work he was doing would last, and even, for example, the impact that my genes would have in gum regrowth, when some surgery had to be done.

For the best in dental care, I recommend Dr. Coetzee without reservation, and with gratitude for how he has helped me, and the ongoing care.
