Perspective from a Pediatric Dentist

ANDREA GAMBLE, DDS | Pediatric Dentist

Andrea Gamble DDS is a private dentist and owner of Local Smile Co. Redondo Beach, California. She received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Washington and a pediatric dentistry specialty degree from the University of Southern California and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles Advanced Pediatric Dentistry Program. She is a Diplomate of American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.


Dr. Gamble, a pediatric dentist recognizes the importance for children to have positive experiences with their teeth. They help build the foundation for a lifetime in good oral hygiene. That’s why she incorporated the Solea dental laserDr. Gamble welcomes you to her practice. Dr. Gamble says laser dentistry with Solea achieves her goal of providing the best care for her patients and provides an amazing experience. “Solea is absolutely amazing technology and it’s a complete game changer for dentistry. As a pediatric dentist, Solea has countless benefits for all involved.”

She feels that laser dentistry is going to be the standard of care, especially for pediatric dentistry, since it’s especially important to decrease the need for sedation in young children. “Our patients now get to experience anesthesia-free, restorative dentistry with Solea. If needed, they’re also able to get multiple procedures completed in one visit, and the chair time is actually shorter, which means less time missed from school. In addition, there are no worries about post-anesthesia soft tissue injuries, or children just generally being uncomfortable and upset from being numb,” said Dr. Gamble. Solea also helps calm the child’s anxiety by making parents feel more relaxed. Dr. Gamble feels that Solea enables her to build strong relationships with her patients and their parents by taking away the major fears of going to the dentist—noise, needle, and numbness.

Solea also allows Dr. Gamble, a dentist, to treat nearby teeth and other areas with much greater care, which is crucial in dentistry. Because it is so precise, the dentist can remove only the affected part of the tooth and preserve the healthy structure. Also, with Solea, soft tissue procedures heal much faster and there’s less post-op discomfort and less need for anesthesia.

“When asked how their experience was with Solea, the most common answers from my patients are ‘It was fun,’ ‘It felt good,’ or ‘Umm … I didn’t feel anything …’ It’s nothing short of wonderful to witness the great experienceThey received. If you want the very best for your patients, laser dentistry is the key that unlocks the door to unprecedented success,” said Dr. Gamble.


Dr. Gamble purchased Solea nine-months after opening her private practice. She considers it the best career decision. “Never did I imagine it would transform my practice. In my opinion, it doesn’t compare to other lasers on the market, and that’s why I chose Solea. It is the only dental laser that meets all our clinical needs—the science behind the laser says it all, and Solea delivers what it promises.”

Dr. Gamble has the ability to not only be more efficient and productive with what she already does, but also performs soft-tissue procedures that were previously referred. “It provides a phenomenal dental experience to both me and my patients and has generated practice growth far beyond anything I imagined.” In the first year with Solea, Dr. Gamble more than doubled her office production and new patient appointments.

Dr. Gamble and his team Local Smile Co. are very proud to offer the best dental care and services to their patients with laser dentistry and can’t imagine practicing pediatric dentistry without Solea.
