POSTPONED: Dental Laser Proficiency Course and Clinical Simulation
Participation/Certification Course for Dentists and Dental Hygienists
August 21, 2020 - August 22, 2020
Has the hoopla surrounding the introduction of lasers to dentistry been more smoke than substance? Since 1990, the USFDA has approved the use of 7 different wavelengths creating a world of difference in how the lasers operate, and their usefulness in the oral cavity.
The first day will detail laser use in the following: Non-Surgical, Surgical & Regenerative Periodontal Therapy, Surgical & Restorative Implantology, Esthetic/Cosmetic Dentistry, Fixed & Removable Prosthetics, Practice Management/Marketing, Oral Med/Oral Surgery/Oral Path, Pedo/Ortho, Pedo & Adolescent Operative Dentistry, & Endo.
The second day will provide each participant hands-on experience with the various wavelengths, performing surgical procedures on in-vitro models. Real time videos of routine laser procedures will be part of the discussion of specific instrument settings and techniques for laser surgical procedures.
At the conclusion of the course, the participant will be familiar with the various wavelengths, their effects on oral tissues, and their uses for specific oral diseases and pathologies found in everyday practice.
Check-in: 7:30 AM Program time: Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Saturday, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
