The Course

The University advanced programme in Laser Dentistry is a one-year course of study and examination in the use of lasers in Dentistry.

The course is composed of three modules of three-day meetings and a final four-day meeting, and by e-learning sections between the meetings. The course focuses on theoretical and applied clinical knowledge of laser use in all aspects of dental surgery and medicine. Additional aspects will focus on the practical use of lasers and the compilation of clinical case presentations.

Course participants will are expected to reach a level of competence that is consistent with an experienced laser user.
