We launched Picasso and Picasso Lite with the vision to make laser dentistry affordable for every dental practice, ensuring a laser is placed in every operatory in every office around the world. With the new hard-tissue, we are continuing this mindset, by providing affordable total laser solutions to the general practitioner.
