Course Description

Give your practice a boost by harnessing laser technology with a positive result that manages effectively day to day periodontal to soft tissue patient conditions. We provide the practitioner on how to choose the right laser and apply simple techniques that result in precision, controlled bleeding, accelerated healing, reduced post-operative issues, shorter procedure time, and a more relaxed experience for the patient. Procedures include non- surgical periodontics, frenectomy, gingivectomy, restorative troughing, biopsy, fibroma removal, implant uncovering and TMD bio-stimulation are presented considering coding and patient acceptance.

You experience direct hands on activity with various lasers on a variety of models including the hog jaw. Instructors knowledgeable in all phases of laser dentistry are with you providing insight into each procedure in a step-by-step fashion to instill confidence when you return to the practice.
