Laser-supported dentistry has come to define modern dentistry, enabling dental practitioners to perform minimally invasive techniques with more precision, less bleeding and post-operative pain, also saving the practitioner and patient valuable time.  Lasers expand the clinical repertoire, therefore also reduces the need to refer certain cases elsewhere, and attracts referrals rather.

This intro or refresher workshop allows dental practitioners a theoretical and hands-on update on the most advanced technology, the different types, and the variety of every-day laser procedures with the various soft- and hard-tissue lasers that can help practitioners achieve more patient-friendly dentistry in less time.  

We invite you to come and enjoy an up-to-date overview of the latest in lasers in dentistry, hear about clinical cases, learn about new hand-pieces entering the market, and how exactly lasers expand your clinical repertoire and grow your practice by discussing return on investment.

This informative session is for general dentists, specialists, hygienists and assistants, and also recommended for receptionists and practice managers to learn about how lasers advance the practice and benefit patients. The 4-hour workshop will equip practitioners with understanding, confidence and enthusiasm on all the benefits of this exciting technology, laser-tissue-interaction and further educational opportunities. You will not only gain intellectual understanding of lasers, but also practical guidance, demonstration and hands-on experience of soft and hard tissue lasers.

•    The important aspects on deciding which laser to purchase - wavelength, versatility, training, support and marketing
