Seminar Title:Surgical/Non-Surgical Laser Course

Speakers:

Dr. Scott Parker, DDS

& Gwen Smukowski, RDH, BS, MBA 


Description:

Lasers and light based instruments have been used in dentistry for decades now and have gained significant traction as our understanding of laser physics and tissue interaction improves. However, not all laser wavelengths are appropriate for all conditions. A good surgical soft tissue laser must be able to cut efficiently thru tissue yet not generate excess heat beyond the surgical margin. Soft tissue lasers should also effectively seal blood vessels, nerve endings, and lymphatics for an improved patient experience. Additionally, non-surgical low level lasers have shown to reduce post-operative discomfort and accelerate healing.

In this course participants will learn how to identify, diagnose, and treat a variety of oral conditions using light based therapy for improved outcomes.Lasers and light based instruments have been used in dentistry for decades now and have gained significant traction as our understanding of laser physics and tissue interaction improves.

In this course participants will learn how to identify, diagnose, and treat a variety of oral conditions using light based therapy for improved outcomes. 

By combining laser technologies with enhanced oral cancer detection you will not only increase

business revenue, you will vastly improve the patient experience and efficiency of clinical procedures. But, not all lasers are appropriate for all procedures.

Participants will learn how to determine which laser is right for their office and will be empowered to move forward with confidence in making the choice that best meets their needs. Attendees will also learn why using an oral cancer screening tool like Velscope is rapidly becoming the standard of care in dentistry.
