This program focuses on the practical aspects of soft tissue laser surgery and on the fundamental processes involved in the interaction between laser and tissue;
Attendees will learn how deep the laser beam cuts and how deep the coagulation and hemostasis extend into the surgical margins,
A very hands-on lab session, designed to train attendees on what surgical lasers can do, and how to do it safely and efficiently,
The hands-on laser wetlab on tissue samples will include laser safety instructions, frenectomy simulations and other surgical laser procedure demonstrations,
Laser science instruction will be further supported by Dr. Peter Vitruk, renowned laser physicist, founder of the American Laser Study Club and LightScalpel Inc.,
The ALSC’s curriculum overcomes the known limitations of many laser dentistry courses and includes the detailed physics of soft tissue ablation and coagulation with laser and hot tip (non-laser) devices.
