ILAGD Mastertrack Presents: Laser Dentistry from A to Z~ Dr. Robert Convissar.

October 13-14, 2017, the Illinois and Wisconsin AGD Mastertrack hosted a program titled “Laser Dentistry from A to Z – A Two Day Laser Certification Program”. The program speaker was Dr. Robert Convissar. The event was attended by 31 participants and was held at Henry Schein Dental in Elmhurst, IL.
With over 27 years of experience using many different kinds of dental lasers, Dr. Convissar is considered a pioneer in the field of laser dentistry. He is one of the first dentists to use lasers in general practice. Dr. Convissar has authored and edited numerous papers and textbooks pertaining to dental lasers. He currently practices in Manhattan, NY and teaches laser dentistry certification courses worldwide.
During the lecture, Dr. Convissar discussed the history of lasers in dentistry and how dental lasers work. He also discussed the different kinds of lasers currently utilized in the dental office. Finally, he discussed clinical applications and demonstrated the use of the various lasers.
Participants had the opportunity to simulate clinical applications using the different kinds of dental lasers on a pig mandible. Participants also had the opportunity to take a standard proficiency test and become members of the Academy of Laser Dentistry. The course was well received by the participants.
