Mastership


One year clinical specialization course “Laser Therapy in Dentistry” for selected wavelengths

RWTH International Academy Logo

This offer is geared towards dentists who would like to specialize in certain wavelengths. Over the course of one year, participants are taught fundamental physical and technical knowledge and how to recognize primary, secondary, and tertiary indications on ten attendance days split into 4 modules held over 2 educational blocks (see below).

This program concludes with an official certificate of RWTH Aachen University and is offered in collaboration with the RWTH Aachen International Academy, the post-graduate education wing of the university.

This post-graduate Mastership programme is aimed at dentists who want to keep pace with their patients ́ wishes for innovative and gentle treatment methods.

Dental laser technology and treatment concerns are typically not taught in standard academic studies in dentistry. Therefore, this program teaches the necessary professional knowledge for laser applications in dental practice taught at the highest academic level in theoretical lectures and practical hands-on teaching for two selected wavelength areas – dental diode lasers (different wavelengths and types) and dental erbium lasers (Er:YAG, Er,Cr:YSGG).

Relevant theories and application options pertaining to laser use in dentistry are taught for those wavelengths.
Participants obtain sound theoretical knowledge in lectures and seminars led by renowned, competent and experienced international scientists and practitioners. Skill-training sessions, exercises, practical applications, and hands-on practical along modules guide participants towards using lasers successfully and professionally in their own treatments.
