New Scientific Directors

It is our pleasure to announce our new scientific directors of the AALZ Aachen Dental Laser Center, Priv.-Doz. Dr. Rene Franzen and Dr. Dimitris Strakas (DDS, PhD, MSc), who will take over the academic leadership at AALZ of our beloved Prof. Dr. Norbert Gutknecht, who recently passed away.

Both, Rene and Dimitris, bring with them about 20 years of academic, scientific, and clinical experience in the field of lasers in dentistry, as well as approved leadership in their respective professions and positions in scientific institutions.

We at AALZ, Aachen Dental Laser Center, are sure that we found the best possible solution for continuing the legacy of our late scientific director Norbert Gutknecht. We will strive to continue our successful way as world-wide leading dental laser center, offering outstanding academic and clinical education on an evidence-based basis.
