This Standard Proficiency Laser course is designed to provide training to Dental Hygienists in the state of Wisconsin and is recognized by the Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD).

This 12-hour, in-depth course, is scheduled as follows:

* Friday, October 25th class: 8-hour detailed lecture that will cover the physics of lasers, tissue interactions, specific settings for procedures, and the variety of lasers that are available. You will also gain information on managing insurance benefits, communication skills, and how to implement lasers into your hygiene program. This lecture is limited to a maximum of 60 participants.

* Saturday, October 26th class: a 4-hour, hands-on clinical practice with lasers in our Dental Clinic. Clinical proficiency and practice will be demonstrated using pig mandibles as well as access to a Mock Exam to prepare you for the online Academy of Laser Dentistry exam (for an additional charge). Clinic size is limited to a maximum of 30 participants. If more than 30 participants enroll in this class, clinic sections will be split into 2 separate groups to accommodate clinic space limitations and instructor access.

This course will prepare dental hygienists to register for the Standard Proficiency Online Exam to certify through the Academy of Laser Dentistry (an additional fee and timeframe does apply to this exam and is not included in the cost of this course).

What to Bring:
* For Friday, October 25 - all course materials are provided for participants
