As clinicians, we all want to offer our patients the best treatment and technology available, and there are a variety of tools on the market to make that possible. The laser is one of them. It’s been used in dentistry since the early 90s, but today’s lasers have evolved into one of the most useful tools for the dentist and hygienist alike.
As the use of laser as an adjunct to non-surgical periodontal therapy gains popularity for dental hygienists, professionals must keep an eye on the ever-evolving criteria and licensing rules. South Carolina established a new regulation for dental hygienists in 2021 regarding the use of lasers.
As Dedicated Dental Hygiene grows, we strive to bring experienced instructors on board to continue to offer quality laser training and certification. In our pursuit for new faculty, we are super excited to announce that we landed a gem of an instructor. Meet Maira Velasco. Maria graduated from dental hygiene in 2009 from Truckee Meadows Community College and furthered her education at Southern Nevada College.
As we get back to in-person learning events, there is buzz and excitement in the air about coming back together. It is time we join each other once again in community for connection and networking. Dedicated Dental Hygiene is a frontrunner in providing, not only exceptional laser courses, but high-quality CE events.
