The hands-on advantage

23 04 2009

One of the biggest draws to the ALD’s annual meeting is the chance for some hands-on learning alongside some of the industry’s leading laser dentists.

On Thursday afternoon, some attendees ended their day going after a chicken breast with a SIROLaser 980 from Sirona.

Dr. Marianne Day of New Mexico tries out the SIROLaser as other dentists try to get a closer look.

The participation course, “Laser Biopsy Techniques,” began with a lecture from Dr. Robert Convissar. He gave the small group an overview of the oral cancer problem and why general dentists should be doing biopsies instead of referring them on to oral surgeons.

Dr. Convissar discussed technique, times when a GP should refer and what should be biopsied. The small group had the opportunity to ask him questions throughout the lecture and during the hands-on participation at the end of class.
