BIOLASE Laser training is on-going and this is the first workshop we invite you to attend on the exciting road to becoming a Laser Dentist. 

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. 

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.

This intro or refresher workshop offers dental practitioners an overview on the most advanced technology in dentistry, the different types of lasers, and the great variety of every-day laser procedures using soft- and hard-tissue lasers.
Hear about the new normal in clinical cases performed with laser. Learn about new handpieces, new laser tips, and how exactly lasers expand your clinical offering, save you and your patients time, differentiate your practice and grow your revenue and enjoyment by discussing return on investment.

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. 
Whether you have a laser or not, start learning and sharing in the magic of lasers!
