Dental Hygienist Laser Certification Course in Chicago Area—Book Now!

Laser on gums

Dedicated Dental Hygiene is partnering with Angie Wallace, RDH, for an upcoming dental laser certification course in the Chicago area. There is no guidance currently listed in the Illinois Practice Act regarding certification courses, but the right training is essential regardless. Here’s what to expect from this November 12th course in Arlington Heights with Angie Wallace.

DDH in Illinois

Our Illinois course is designed to meet the educational requirements for laser use in most states, including Illinois. Hygienists can expect to learn the value and benefit of laser-assisted hygiene, including the role of laser debridement in the treatment of biofilm infection and the host inflammatory side of periodontal infection through energy absorption.

The eight-hour course will also review:

• How best to explain laser procedures to patients
• Choosing appropriate settings
• Treatment planning, coding, and fee assessment
• An introduction to photo-biomodulation and wound healing
• A clinical, hands-on simulation

Attendees of DDH courses also have the option of pursuing their Academy of Laser Dentistry standard level certification after attending the course for an additional fee. We’re proud to be one of just 22 providers offering this certification, which is the only recognized laser certification in the country.

Meet Angie Wallace

Angie is an in-office laser hygiene consultant. She’s a member and recommended course provider of the Academy of Laser Dentistry, providing standard proficiency to dental hygienists interested in soft-tissue laser training. We’re thrilled to have her as a co-instructor on our Arlington Heights course—her expertise and experience truly speak for themselves.

Benefits of Dental Laser Certification

While individual state boards dictate rules and regulations regarding laser use, there’s so such thing as too much education. The dental laser is a powerful tool, and the benefits of certification are lengthy. Not only does it improve the scope of your individual practice, it means you’re qualified to use the laser on patients who are actively seeking this kind of care.

As the dental laser grows in popularity, it’s a good idea to seek certification now. Chances are good some level of training will soon be required across the country.
