November 26, 2019

The “Lasers 101” track is a day pass program entitled, “So You Got a Laser. Now What?” scheduled for Saturday, April 4 from 8 a.m.-3 p.m.

The Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD) announced its first “Lasers 101” educational track during the 27th annual conference and exhibition next year.

 

The “Lasers 101” track is a day pass program entitled, “So You Got a Laser. Now What?” scheduled for Saturday, April 4 from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. 

“This learning track is designed to excite clinicians interested in exploring laser dentistry or those who may be on the fence about it. By taking this course, clinicians put themselves in the driver’s seat with confidence when it comes to evaluating lasers clinically and using them. It’s another example of ALD’s innovative approach to laser education,” said ALD executive director, Gail Siminovsky, CAE. 

The program will include expert speakers Michael Cataldo, CEO of Convergent Lasers, who will present “Return on Your Laser Investment”; Dr. Juliana Barros, “Let the Light Shine: A Brighter Day at the Office”; and Dr. Shalizah Patel, who will present “Laser Protocols: Let the Evidence Guide You.”

This series will present unbiased, scientifically relevant practical information, ALD said, plus will award six Continuing Education credits, and a panel discussion. Breakfast and lunch are included. The cost is $695 per attendee, however, the program is free with registration for the entire ALD 2020 Meeting. Seating is limited. 

The theme for the 2020 ALD Meeting is “The Future is NOW: Integrating Technology into Your Practice.” This experience is designed to transform careers by providing unbiased lectures, hands-on workshops, and all types of lasers, ALD said. Digital imaging, CAD/CAM, and 3D cone beam radiography are all included in the curriculum, too.

The 2020 Academy of Laser Dentistry is April 2-4 at the Paradise Point Resort in San Diego. For more information or to register, visit laserdentistry.org.
