AMD Lasers launches academy

AMD Lasers has created an academy for instruction in the use of dental lasers called the International Center for Laser Education (ICLE).

The ICLE will offer courses on both hard and soft tissue lasers, led by Glenn van As, D.M.D. ICLE is the first laser company to offer affordable laser education through video, hands on, and in an interactive laser forum, according to an AMD press release.

"Until now, most laser courses have been expensive and not specific enough in content to really assist dentists in understanding the safety, efficacy, and proper use of dental laser technology," said Dr. van As. "The opportunity was there to create training, laser certification, and education that gives doctors the knowledge and skills they need to successfully integrate all types of lasers into today's modern practice at an affordable price. I believe that education should be cost-effective and available to everyone interested in achieving excellence in dental care."

ICLE's courses are appropriate for both experienced clinicians and new laser dentists, the company said. The laser forum allows dentists to ask questions, post technique videos, and share laser experiences. ICLE courses earn dentists accreditation and education is available for the most popular lasers in dentistry.
