A leading expert in laser dentistry, Peter K. Pang, DDS, is an international speaker with manuscripts in several peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Pang uses multiple wavelengths in his general practice in Sonoma, Calif. Co-host Mitchell A. Lomke, DDS, has been in private practice as a general dentist in Montgomery, Md., for more than 35 years and has special interest in dental laser procedures. And, co-host Angie Mott, RDH, has been a clinical hygienist for more than 25 years and is a member of the Academy of Laser Dentistry.

Be sure to bring your own magnification loupes (with laser filters, if available). Equipment and supplies, including a variety of dental lasers, will be provided courtesy of ALD's Corporate Member Laser Manufacturers. You may also bring your own portable lasers.

This course will include a clinical simulation exam and 75-question multiple-choice online test. Exam instructions will be provided during the course, and the online test must be completed by August 12, 2016. Successfully complete the simulation exam and online test, and you'll be recognized as having fulfilled the certification requirements for a dental laser Standard Proficiency course. Standard Proficiency certification is recognized nationally by the AGD and ADA, as well as internationally among respected professional and regulatory organizations. You will receive a letter from the Academy of Laser Dentistry indicating your C.E. credits for the exam. ALD members will also receive a Certificate of Successful Completion noting the specific course participation and clinical simulation wavelength.
