Advanced Surgical Training with Laser Technology

2016 CO2 Laser Course Highlights

June Laser Course Reminder 2cropped

Keeping up with current dental technology often means being able to offer optimized patient care. Recognizing this, the Dental Implant Learning Center recently hosted a CO2 Laser Training Course during the 2016 Basic Surgical Implant Mini-Residency Program. This course was designed to help clinicians integrate laser technology into their own practice for use in periodontal and implant procedures. Utilizing laser technology for surgical procedures can mean enhanced precision and reduced surgical time for the doctor, as well as less discomfort and postoperative healing time for patients, resulting in an elevated level of patient care. Read on to view some of the highlights from the 2016 Laser Training Course!




Hands On Participation

Attendees were able to participate in a Hands On exercise, as well as view Live Surgical Demonstrations of discussed laser techniques.

Returning Alumni

We welcomed some of our past residents back for the Laser Technology Course. Here’s Dr. Simon Kappel and Dr. Angelina Asaza with their thoughts on the course and the Mini Residency program.



The 2016 Laser Technology Training Course is just one of the many programs the Dental Implant Learning Center offers to clinicians looking to further their implant education and expand their surgical expertise. We’re happy to announce we now offer an Advanced Implant Surgery Mini Residency, a 3 month course designed for those with some implant placement experience who wish to hone their surgical skills and have the confidence to take on the more advanced implant cases. The Mini Residency includes the popular Cadaver Program, a 3 day Live Surgery module, and just added, a Staff Training module. We’ve also recently added fall dates for the Cancun Live Implant Surgery Course, with registration for the October 12-16, 2016 dates opening soon.
