Has the hoopla surrounding the introduction of lasers to dentistry been more smoke than substance? Since 1990, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of SEVEN different wavelengths for dental use. These different wavelengths create a world of difference in how the lasers operate, and their usefulness in the oral cavity. The use of lasers for specific procedures found in everyday general practice will be highlighted. The first day will detail laser use in the following subject matters:

1) Non-Surgical, Surgical and Regenerative Periodontal Therapy
2) Surgical and Restorative Implantology
3) Fixed and Removable Prosthetics
4) Oral Medicine/Oral Surgery/Oral Pathology
5) Pediatric and Adolescent Operative Dentistry
7) Endodontics
8) Pedodontics/Orthodontics
9) Esthetic/Cosmetic Dentistry
10) Practice Management/Marketing

The second day workshop will give 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 in-depth 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 used in dentistry today, their effects on oral

tissues, and their uses for specific oral diseases and pathologies found in everyday practice. They will be able to incorporate this knowledge into a basis for determining which laser wavelength is most appropriate for their practice, and be able to incorporate hard and soft tissue laser dentistry into their practices first thing tomorrow morning.

*Standard Proficiency Certification will be awarded upon successfully completing an online examination administered by the Academy of Laser Dentistry. The candidate must own a laser or have access to a laser, and have taken a previous introductory laser course. The candidate must become a member of the Academy of Laser Dentistry. A free introductory course on lasers is available on the Academy of Laser Dentistry Website at:
