2025 American Laser Study Club Symposium

Join Us January 31 – February 2, 2025, in Clearwater Beach, FL


Join us in Clearwater Beach, FL, from January 31 to February 2 for the 2025 Breathe and Thrive Symposium. The 2025 Symposium is an excellent opportunity to further your knowledge in Tethered Oral Tissues (TOTS), laser surgery, frenectomy/frenuloplasty techniques and tips, multidisciplinary team building, studies, technologies, innovations, and laser science and safety education. With many multidisciplinary lectures and hands-on laser sessions, you will have the chance to learn from leading experts in the field and network with fellow clinicians focused on airway and tongue-tie.

Hands-On Laser Labs

This will be an excellent opportunity for clinicians to try out soft tissue surgical lasers firsthand and simulate the variety of soft tissue procedures on tissue samples—at no additional cost for Symposium attendees. Non-doctors can attend a wet lab, but only as observers.

  • Frenectomy simulations on pig-jaw cadavers
  • Incisional, excisional, ablative, and coagulative application simulations
  • Incision and coagulation depth control simulations
  • Non-ablative oral tissue laser remodeling simulations
  • Presets and considerations for different tissue types

Symposium Attendees will be provided with the opportunity to obtain Laser Safety Basic Knowledge Certificates from the LIA (at a discounted rate for ALSC members) and Laser Dental Surgery Basic Knowledge Certificates from the ALSC (complimentary upon completing an online quiz).

Testimonials from Past Symposia

I thought the program exceeded my expectations. I loved the varied speakers + learned so much info that I can incorporate into my pediatric dental practice. Hearing not only from other pediatric dentists, but form sleep disorder specialists, airway specialists, oral surgeons, breastfeeding experts, myofunctional therapists – gave me a much better understanding of how to evaluate my patients. I also learned a lot about perfecting my frenectomy procedure.

Mary Ellen Nesnay, DMD

I have said a million times over that the ALSC Symposium is the most enriching event I attend annually. The colleagues that attend this meeting are top-notch. Everyone who attends is looking to help better the knowledge base and improve the standard of care to arrive at a level of best practices. This Symposium meets and exceeds my expectations every year. Just when I thought it could not get any better, the ALSC Symposium continues to deliver.

Matthew J. Rowe, DDS, MSD

I came into this inaugural conference not knowing what to expect. I was overwhelmed by the amount of information I learned. The intermixing of different specialties was a wonderful experience. I am looking forward to participating in the future. Having non-doctor clinicians was helpful to bring together the “big picture.”

Scott A. Siegel, MD, DDS, FACS, FICS, FAAP

Great program overall! It was well organized and ran on time. Presenters were all knowledgeable, humble, and wanting to continue to learn things themselves. Love the low egos in this Study Club! Food and beverages were great. It was nice having everything in one, nice, convenient area of the hotel.
