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.
While Dedicated Dental Hygiene courses are temporarily postponed due to the novel coronavirus, our in-office training offers a safe alternative to large course events that put participants in close quarters. The familiar setting also tends to puts clinicians at ease, freeing them to focus on the laser. Learn more about our in-office training now.
Dental lasers are an increasingly important and commonplace therapy for non-surgical man-agement of periodontal disease. For the registered dental hygienist, certification is becoming a necessity in states across the country. It signifies the hygienist’s breadth of training on the laser and an ability to ensure the safety of the patient. If you’re a dental hygienist seeking soft tis-sue diode laser certification, a course at Dedicated Dental Hygiene will ensure you have the right training and knowledge.
The coronavirus has impacted every facet of modern life here in the US. Employees are working remotely, many businesses are indefinitely closed, students are participating in distance learning, and most of us are doing what we can to stay home. Shelter-in-place orders vary from state to state and gradual easings of restrictions have begun, but the world is a very different place than it was just a few months ago. For registered dental hygienists and dentists, factoring for COVID-19 is now part of business. Here’s how COVID-19 has impacted dental laser training in particular.
For dentists and registered dental hygienists, the difference between dental laser certification and dental laser training is become more and more pronounced. That’s true even in states that remain ambiguous about education requirements, like California. In Texas, statutes are more explicit, necessitating a dental laser educational course that will properly prepare an RDH — exactly like those offered here at Dedicated Dental Hygiene.
