Laser Crown Lengthening - BIOLASE

Lasers are changing the dental industry radically for dental practitioners and patients. At this workshop, you will learn the areas in daily practice where lasers can elevate your dentistry and allow for more minimally invasive treatments. This informative session will prepare dentists / specialists with insight into all the benefits of this exciting technology and laser-tissue-interaction. You will not only gain intellectual understanding of lasers, but also practical guidance, demonstration, and hands-on experience of lasers.

The participants will enjoy a hands-on opportunity using Er,Cr;YSGG lasers (Biolase Waterlase iPlus / Express) as well as the Diode Lasers (940nm Biolase Epic X / Epic Pro) on extracted teeth and a sheep or pig jaw bone for soft and hard tissue experience.

If interested, the workshop qualifies you to further diode training through the World Clinical Laser Institute and BIOLASE followed by the opportunity to do a certified exam.
