WHY THE LASER?

CO2 and Diode Laser Education Courses

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.

Why The Laser?
"I had a really great learning experience. The instructors were knowledgeable and interested in teaching."
"Great course I feel confident!"
"I liked that it was hygiene based!"
"Great Class!"
"Very interesting subject and passionate instructor!"
"Great job keeping us entertained, using analogies, and giving breaks!"
"I recently attended a laser course put on by Angie and Kristin. It was such a great experience! They were both so informative and really knew their information! We got to learn about the differences for the diode and the CO2 and it was so helpful for myself and the rest of the hygienists to have that hands on experience! Thank you both for such an informative course- we all feel so much more comfortable when working with lasers!"
