Hands-On Laser Surgery Wet Labs

Soft-tissue laser surgery hands-on wet labs will be available during the Symposium at no additional cost to attendees. This is a great opportunity for clinicians to try out soft-tissue surgical lasers firsthand and simulate the variety of soft tissue procedures on tissue samples (pig jaws). This is intended for both new and advanced laser surgeons.

Earn Continuing Education Credits

Dentistry CE credits will be provided through a partnership with ADA CERP CDE providers.

About the ALSC

The American Laser Study Club promotes science-based laser surgery, dentistry, and safety education. The ALSC fills the void in current laser surgery and laser dentistry education (i.e., the physics of laser-tissue interaction, such as absorption, scattering, ablation, coagulation and hemostasis, soft and hard tissue ablation, laser safety, etc.) and helps physicians, dentists, veterinarians and practice staff members to excel at the efficient and safe application of laser energy in everyday practice.
