PROGRAM

 

8:30 | Registration 

 

9:00 | Intro & Career Journeys

How laser changes day to day dentistry and what we do now, that we never did before. A quick value and practice-change assessment.

 

09:15 | Lasers in Endo using Diode lasers and Er,Cr:YSGG lasers 

Attendants will learn and see how to clean, shape, disinfect and obturate root canals in a single visit, using the “Dual Wavelength Technique”.  



 

10:15 | Break

 

10:30 | Empowered Perio with different wavelengths

Preserving teeth and ailing implants is a life changing experience for the compromised patient. Clinical cases will prove not only what can be achieved, but also why Laser assisted treatment is the choice of treatment by world leaders in periodontology.


 

11:30 | Photobiomodulation

During this presentation, clinical cases will show the amazing effect a laser beam has on the healing process of damaged cells, combating the inflammatory process after injury or surgery, acceleration of tissue regeneration and the management of acute and chronic pain.


 

12:30 | Lunch

 

13:00 | Lasers in Surgery & Restorative Cases

Learn how different kinds of surgical procedures can be done with laser only. For example, gingivectomy, frenectomy, biopsy, laser bandage, pigmentation removal, closed flap crown length, apisectomy and tori removal. With laser, restorative procedures are beneficial and adjunctive. Laser cavity preparation restorations with better bond preperation, smear layer removal, bactericidal, and growth factors are stimulated in the bone and tooth to advance healing and restoration. Participants will learn that a good number of soft-tissue and hard-tissue procedures can be done either with a diode laser or with an Er,Cr:YSGG laser. Benefits for the patients and for the doctor will be explained, as well as the positive outcomes for this kind of laser-supported surgery.


 

14:00 | Laser Physics & Safety [Exam Prep]

Attendees will be taught the basics of laser physics, tissue interaction, characteristics of individual wavelengths, safety and regulatory issues, as well as an overview of clinical uses.



14:30 | Q&A

 

14:50 | Break

 

15:00 | WCLI Associate Fellowship Exam [Optional]

 

16:00 | Certification & End

These meetings are excellent opportunities to learn the latest approaches to integrating technology to improve every aspect of your dental practice.
 


ABOUT ASSOCIATE FELLOWSHIP

Associate Fellowship Certification provides candidates with a basic understanding of laser physics, tissue interaction, characteristics of individual wavelengths, safety and regulatory issues, as well as an overview of clinical uses.


TOPICS COVERED 

- Fundamentals of laser physics, including wavelength characteristics of ALL dental laser wavelengths

- Concepts involving laser-tissue interaction

- History of lasers in dentistry

- Laser safety and regulatory issues

- Knowledge of the laser environment

- Management of patient expectations and treatment options

- Techniques for cutting hard and soft tissue

- Clinical capabilities of dental lasers


HOW TO EARN ASSOCIATE FELLOWSHIP CERTIFICATION

Pass a written examination for Associate Fellow Certification. The exam contains approximately 50 test questions.

Attend a minimum of a one-day WCLI or WCLI-endorsed course.


Candidates are not required to present clinical cases or pay any additional fees. Also, candidates for Associate Fellowship Certification are not required to have daily access to an Er,Cr:YSGG or diode laser. Associate Fellowship Certification can be earned at any WCLI-sponsored one-day educational seminar or full-length WCLI symposia held at various locations around the world each year.
