    MODE: Electronically mediated. Live webinar.

    AUDIENCE: Dentists, Dental Hygienists, and Dental Assistants

    ​LEARNING OBJECTIVES: 1. Understand how PBM works  2. Know the benefits of Photobiomodulation 3. Understand how PBMT can replace pharmaceuticals in the treatment of facial pain/TMD  4. Understand the difference between LED devices and Lasers

    DESCRIPTION:  In the field of dentistry, research has been directed toward the potential of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT/Cold Laser/Photobiomodulation) to reduce the healing time of oral surgery, improve anesthesia and analgesia, treat TMD conditions, improve implant osseointegration and more.

    WHY SHOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT PHOTOBIOMODULATION? Now more than ever, dental practices rely on the latest advancements in technology to improve their patient outcomes. These same technologies should be a win-win for the dental practice and the patient. During these trying times Photobiomodulation is the ticket to improve ROI through overall patient satisfaction. It is a practice builder.  Photobiomodulation (also known as Low Level Laser Therapy) is a technology that has existed for 50 years supported by science and research. You will wonder how you have practiced without implementing Photobiomodulation in your dental practice to date.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

  3. Of over 400 dental clinicians we surveyed, nearly 87% had zero to little knowledge of low level laser therapy/photobiomodulation  (PBMT) or technology, despite numerous studies and citations providing clinical  evidence that PBMT can reduce inflammation, quicken healing times, reduce the need for local anesthetic, analgesics, and opioids, provide relief and hasten the healing of herpetic lesions, improve TMD symptoms and neuralgias, improve osseointegration in implant cases, move teeth faster with less discomfort, reduce the incidence of dry socket, and many more evidence based applications. 

  4. WHO IS GMA LASER EDUCATION? This 1 hour presentation is an ongoing panel discussion with  Photobiomodulation Experts and Educators, Dr. Gerry Ross, Dr. Mel Burchman, and Dr. Arun Darbar, Co-Founders, GMA Laser Education.
