"Totally outstanding course. Dr. Convissar not only has an expert knowledge of the subject, but he is also a great speaker. I am so glad I signed up for this course. It was, hands down, one of the best ones I have ever taken. I am looking forward to the next class taught by you"

Course Description:

Since 1990, the U.S. Food and Drug administration has approved the use of seven different wavelengths for dental use. These different wavelengths create a world of difference in how the lasers operate, and their usefulness in the oral cavity.

The lectures on both days will detail laser use in the following subject matters:

  • Surgical and non-surgical periodontal therapy
  • Implantology
  • Fixed and removable prosthetics
  • Oral medicine / oral surgery / oral pathology
  • Pediatric and adolescent operative dentistry
  • Endodontics Practice management / marketing

HANDS-ON Portion: 

The workshops will give each participant a hands-on experience with the various wavelengths by performing surgical procedures on pig jaws. Real time videos of routine laser procedures will be part of the in-depth discussion of specific instrument settings and techniques for laser surgical procedures.

About the Certification

Candidates who successfully complete the course will receive a Continuing Education Certificate from both NJHPDI and Dr. Robert Convissar in Dental Lasers recognized by the American Board of Laser Surgery (ABLS), the world's only laser medical specialty board. This course is the first and only US-based training course that offers a Certificate of Dental Laser Proficiency under the ABLS banner.

Participants will then be prepared to take the written exam, conveniently from your home or office directly through the ABLS's website. This optional test is only for those that wish to complete the exam for certification.


At the conclusion of the course, the participant will be familiar with the various wavelengths used, their effects on oral tissues, and their uses for specific oral diseases and pathologies found in everyday practice. They will be able to incorporate this knowledge into their practices first thing Monday morning.
