Laser Training: Pre-Licensing Course

August 4, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

$660 – $1000

Dental practitioners can use lasers to augment or replace traditional instruments in a range of clinical procedures. While low power lasers used in diagnostic aids are not regulated under radiation safety legislation, higher power lasers (Class 4) used in restorative dentistry, bleaching and minor oral surgery are regulated in Qld and some other jurisdictions. In the coming years, uniform national regulatory legislation is expected to be introduced. The need for formal training in laser safety is a key element so that these devices are used both effectively and safely.

This course is approved by Radiation Health Queensland (course code ED029). Its content follows the recommendations of AS/NZS4173:2004 in terms of training requirements for dental clinicians.

The course assumes no prior knowledge of laser physics and is designed specifically for the new laser user and for those wanting to understand how the technology is used in practice and how different laser types interact with tissues in unique ways.

The course includes a lecture and benchtop hands-on components, as well as a written examination. Please see below for a breakdown of the course topics:

The generation of laser light and its unique properties
Laser delivery systems, including their optics and performance
Modes of operation of lasers, and how these are selected for different clinical applications
Interactions of laser radiation with soft and hard tissues
Soft tissue surgery
Caries removal, laser etching and laser-induced analgesia
Methods of laser enhanced bleaching
Low level laser therapy and laser disinfection
Hazards of surgical lasers used in dentistry
Laser safety considerations including hazard area assessment, selection of eyewear, in office protocols and checklists, and administrative controls
