Instructors: Scott D. Benjamin, D.D.S., Anže Zorman, M.D., Kresimir Simunovic, D.M.D., MSc
W Costa Rica Resort, Reserva Concha, Costa Rica
November 20-23, 2019
This is a 4 day modular hans-on program on advanced procedures in laser dentistry on mastering the utilization an Er:YAG and Nd:YAG laser wavelengths. It is intended for clinicians that have completed comprehensive basic laser education and have wide-ranging experience utilizing these wavelengths. Topics will include concepts on the science and techniques for restorative, surgical, cosmetic, and photobiomodulation procedures. The course instructors are world renown expert clinicians in the laser healthcare from both North America and Europe.
Photobiomodulation (Low Level Laser Therapy/ "Cold Laser") Training
Instructor: James Carroll
This 8 CE credit hour hands-on course teaches "first principles" of Photobiomodulation (PBM) commonly referred to in the past as Low Level Laser (Light) Therapy (LLLT) which has also been referred to as Phototherapy or Photomedicine. Topics discussions, demonstrations, and participation activities include the science, research, and clinical applications of PBM in today dental and systemic healthcare. The primary focus is on how light absorption effects tissue and the cascading of intracellular and extra cellular effects leading to physiological changes and enhanced clinical outcomes. Discussions will focus on the science and clinical evidence on the role of PBM for the management of inflammation, edema, dental specific pain, joint pain, wound healing, and tissue regeneration. The goal is to obtain a knowledge matrix that is a simple model for understanding PBM’s mechanism of action, clinical effects and treatment methods. James Carroll, the course instructor is considered one of world’s foremost authorities and has given courses on PBM all around the globe. He has presented to both the United Nations (Click here to view UN presentation) and the US Congress (click here to view to presentation to congress) on the role and value the PBM has in enhancing dental and systemic healthcare. The course content is designed for all dental and medical fields.
Utilization of Diode Laser & Laser Safety Officer Training
Instructor: Scott D. Benjamin, D.D.S.
Dates and Times TBD
This full day hands-on laser continuing education program will enhance the attendee’s knowledge of the science, safety, functionality, and importance lasers bring to everyday patient care with the 970nm diode laser. It is designed to provide 8 hours of participation CE credits to meet the laser training and safety requirements of ANSI and many states. It will increase the attendees understanding of the benefits lasers provide in enhancing the quality of care and the benefits of the appropriate laser can provide in efficiency and improved outcomes. In this interactive course the attendees will be provided with hands on experience and the confidence they need to incorporate the laser safely and efficiently into everyday patient care. Topics covered and simulation experiences include surgical, periodontal, and hygiene procedures, including photobiomodulation (PBM) / low level laser therapy (LLLT).
