University Master Module Courses

Certified Education in Lasers in Dentistry

In standard academic studies in dentistry, dentists do not get to learn about dental laser technology and treatment concepts. Building onto a university degree in dentistry, the necessary professional knowledge for laser applications in dental practice is taught at the highest academic level in theoretical lectures and practical teaching for two selected wavelength areas - dental Erbium lasers and dental diode lasers.

Relevant theories and application options (such as this Endo Module Course) pertaining to laser use in dentistry are taught for those wavelengths. Participants obtain sound theoretical knowledge in lectures and seminars led by renowned, competent and experienced international scientists and practitioners. Skills training sessions, exercises, practical applications, and live operations guide participants towards using lasers successfully and professionally.

Foundational Course applicable to anyone working in a laser office.


The LSO certification course is a prerequisite before your first Mastership Module Course, and is therefore available to participate in the day before the Advanced Endo Course/Module. 

The 1-Day Laser Safety Officer Certification (LSO) provides the foundational knowledge regarding biophysical interactions between several wavelengths and the main oral tissues, and entitles you to be responsible for all safety regulations regarding Class IV medical lasers in your practice. 

We give you an in-depth understanding of laser physics and laser tissue interaction, preparing you for the safest use of lasers in dentistry. We explain statutory regulations, demonstrate their implementation in practice and describe laser application fields. After passing the examination on the same day, you receive the “Laser Safety Officer” certificate.

This laser safety course meets the requirements of the trade associations for obtaining expertise as a Laser Safety Officer, recognised according to the guidelines of orientated to EN 60825-1 and/or ANSI Z136.1. This course is conceived upon the suggested curriculum of the German regulations OStrV and TROS “Laserstrahlung”.

Foundational certification course for those who have not yet completed the AALZ LSO Course. This is your chance to be taught by the wisdom-filled Physicist Rene, Priv.-Doz. Dr. rer. medic. Rene Franzen who is also Scientific Director of AALZ.

Your Pathway to your Mastership or Master Professional (MSc.) Degree from Sigmund Freud University [SFU] and the Aachen Dental Laser Center [AALZ].

Optional: Complete LSO + 3 Modules to achieve your Mastership

This Endo module course is a subset of the Sigmund Freud University (SFU) Master Professional program "Lasers in Dentistry" and successful participants qualify for an upgrade into the Mastership or Master Professional (MSc.) Degree program if the participant so decides, upon successful completion of the module/s.

By completing the Laser Safety Officer Certification Course (LSO) with any 3 Mastership Module Courses such as Lasers in Endodontics, Periodontics, Surgery, Implantology, Pediatric Dentistry, Orthodontics, Low-Level Laser Treatments and Facial Aesthetics, you will qualify for the final examination module at Vienna's Sigmund Freud University, where you will present 5 clinical cases and complete the written exam to graduate with a Mastership in Laser Dentistry.

This choice is yours and gives you the flexibility to complete only the modules you're interested in, or the opportunity to complete more modules, as well as the opportunity to complete the exam module for the Mastership qualification (or even further). 

Complete as many modules as you'd like, anywhere in the world, with no time-limit. 

The ECTS accreditation for the “Mastership Lasers in Dentistry” is therefore:
• 1 ECTS for Laser Safety Officer (LSO)
• 4 x 2 ECTS for each selected module course
• 6 ECTS for the final examination module
Total: 15 ECTS

As a Mastership Graduate you can choose to continue on to the 2.5-year module-based Master Professional (120 ECTS) at Sigmund Freud Vienna University, where you will participate in deep, cutting-edge laser knowledge, produce laser-research project(s) and present it as a Master Thesis, graduating with an MSc University degree.
