DID YOU KNOW?

The Waterlase all-tissue dental laser provides a safe alternative to the dental drill and generates 90% less aerosols (check it out). Waterlase treatments are faster, gentler, and have faster recovery times than the drill.
The Epic diode laser is a wonderful tool that destroys virus, bacteria and fungus. “The EPIC 940nm Diode is anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-bacterial, haemostatic, and promotes good quality healing. It offers many clinical applications other than just surgery. Every dentist should have one!” Dr Mark Cronshaw, UK. 

ACHIEVE MORE IN LESS TIME
Laser-supported dentistry enables minimally invasive techniques with more precision, less bleeding and post-operative pain, also saving the practitioner and patient valuable time. 
Lasers expand your clinical repertoire, reducing the need to refer certain cases elsewhere, and attracts referrals rather.

Any SciVision / BIOLASE Laser Workshop qualifies you to an online video course followed by an optional BIOLASE Diode Certification Exam and optional in-practice Epic Demo on a patient, with the guidance of a SciVision trainer (within a 0-150km radius of our various offices).

BIOLASE Laser training is on-going and a LASER101 / 102 is a great introductory / refresher workshop. With the very many clinical indications available and the flexibility of the Epic Diode, it's various handpieces and the gentle wavelength, it's up to you to use all the benefits, and keep advancing your laser skills and knowledge. The number of Waterlase indications are even more, but once you've seen and felt one of these lasers, there is no going back to traditional.


BIOLASE is fortunate to have a large community of hundreds of BIOLASE users in Southern Africa (and internationally) who guide and support each other. 
Laser education from short courses, post-graduate Diploma to Master of Science Degree level is available and developing new laser leaders year on year.
