How do I know if I can use the laser in my state?

Click on your state on our state requirements page to be directed to your state’s dental board website. There, you will find acceptable practices for the RDH in the bylaws.

How can the laser help my practice?

Laser technology offers a more positive dental experience for your patients by ensuring their comfort. It’s suitable for a number of dental conditions, and it can make dental treatments more efficient and cost-effective. In addition, many dental patients today choose a practice based on its technology. Offering laser dentistry is a sign of a practice that understands the importance of the latest tools and technology.

Can the laser increase my production?

How do I know what laser to buy?

There are many units to choose from in the laser world. Before purchasing a laser, consider how it will fit your practice. How will your office use the laser? Will your focus be on restorative or soft tissue procedures? Once you identify suitable clinical applications for your practice, move on to examining device characteristics and comparing options in your price point.

Can lasers in periodontal therapy harm patients?

Each laser has different wavelengths and power levels that can be used safely during different periodontal procedures. However, damage to periodontal tissues can result if a laser with an inappropriate wavelength and/or power level is used. Proper training and a thorough understanding of the appropriate use of the laser in dentistry is critical, even if your state doesn’t require it.
