Course Description:

Candidates who successfully complete this course will receive a Certificate in Laser Dentistry recognized by the American Board of Laser Surgery, the only Medical Certifying Board in the world dedicated to Lasers and Light Energy in Medicine and Dentistry.

Has the excitement 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 TWELVE 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 (animal mandibles).  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.

Attendees are expected to perform the following procedures on the models:




Crown Lengthening

Initial Periodontal Pocket therapy

Aphthous Ulcer Treatment

Flap Procedure


And more…..


Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of the course, the participant:

  • Will be familiar with the various wavelengths used in dentistry today
  • Will understand their effects on oral tissues
  • Will understand their uses for specific oral diseases and pathologies found in everyday practice.
  • Will be able to incorporate this knowledge into a basis for determining which laser wavelength is most appropriate for their practice
  • Be able to incorporate hard and soft tissue laser dentistry into their practices first thing tomorrow morning.
