Her strongest belief

lena-cresta-iatreio-02aHer hospital experience with phobic patients, sparked her interest on dental prevention, having realized, early on, that dental disease can be prevented with correct patient education. She has since devoted the greatest part of her career on managing individual patient needs, with emphasis on oral disease prevention in children and young patients and medically compromised patients.

The introduction of laser-assisted treatments, particularly in young patients, has often helped in the management of fearful or apprehensive behavior.
