GENP 309 - Introduction to Lasers in Dentistry



Cr Hrs: 1 (10-0-0)

GENP 309 is a lecture based course that presents essential concepts in laser dentistry, including, but not limited to laser safety, laser-tissue interaction, an introduction to several dental laser wavelengths, the healing nature of lasers and clinical examples in multiple specialties. The purpose of this course is to introduce the third year dental student to the basic principles of laser dentistry.  This includes basic laser science and laser safety so you don’t “shoot your eye out.”  This course will introduce you to various wavelengths, laser components and the most common procedures which can be completed predictably.  Understanding the fundamentals is essential to making a successful transition from traditional dentistry (high speeds and scalpels) to using lasers. This course may not be repeated unless failed.
