Beth Ryerse, RDH, RDH Connection Educator, CDHA Board Director, Certified in Class IV ICLE Soft Tissue Diode Laser

Assisted by Dafna Czudner, RDH, Owner, Healing Roots Dental Hygiene Studio, Certified in Class IV ICLE Soft Tissue Diode Laser


As the profession of dental hygiene evolves, so does the technology that we employ. Discover how the assistance of a specific laser can provide the ultimate in client care and comfort, treatment outcome and become the “instrument of choice” to complement scaling and root planing. An overview of ‘physics 101’ will be covered to assist in determining the most efficacious laser selection for various treatments.

The integration of the laser into non-surgical periodontal therapy and specifically laser bacterial reduction will be supported by compelling evidence. An introduction to the latest, innovative and affordable soft tissue diode lasers for immediate integration into dental hygiene practice will be highlighted. Learn the science, experience the laser and witness the opportunity that waits to transform your practice today.
