An introduction to lasers

One of the first dental laser training courses you have to take in Canada is a laser certification course.

Ensure the course you take is accepted. Otherwise, you risk having to retake it from an accredited and approved provider. In Canada, Laser certification in the provinces that allow it within dental hygiene practice, require a course that is a combination of theory and hands-on learning.

During this course, you receive practical, hands-on training on operating a laser in a dental office environment.

This part of the course provides an opportunity to apply what you learned in the introduction to laser courses in a real-world environment using actual laser equipment. The course content also cover basic scientific principles and clinical applications of laser procedures.

This supplies students with knowledge and experience needed to pass the standard certification exam.

The laser certification course involves clinical training, and a certification exam. Ultimately, by the end of the course, you should gain a foundational understanding of:

  • How lasers work and impact human tissue
  • How to calibrate laser properties to achieve desired results
  • Safety procedures when using dental laser equipment
  • The principles of light and laser technology
  • How lasers interact with human tissue
  • How to safely operate lasers in clinical environments
