Take your practice to a higher level by integrating laser technology. Dr. Anthony Cardoza, a certified laser dentist, provides in-depth instruction for both dentists and hygienists on laser applications, safety and physics. He covers general applications including cavity preparations, various soft tissue procedures (gingivectomy, frenectomy, troughing for margin exposure, implant uncovering), endodontic laser activated irrigation, and bony procedures such as crown lengthening and tori reduction. In addition, he discusses laser dental hygiene applications such as laser bacterial reduction (LBR), and de-epithelization.

During the hands-on segment you will practice with different laser systems using pig jaws and teeth for both soft tissue and hard tissue applications including cavity preparation, soft tissue ablation, bone ablation and all hygiene procedures.

1. Understand basic laser safety and physics
2. Learn several clinical applications of dental hard tissue and soft tissue lasers
3. Use the laser in a simulated dental hard and soft tissue environment

Note: The hands-on training will be conducted using lasers provided by BIOLASE, Convergent Dental (Solea) and Fotona.

Dr. Anthony Cardoza is a 1985 graduate of Northwestern University Dental School and maintains a general dental practice in Santee, CA. He is a Fellow in the World Clinical Laser Institute and a member of the Academy of Laser Dentistry. Dr. Cardoza lectures throughout the United States and Canada on the topics of forensic dentistry and lasers in dentistry.

MWDI Parking Information
For your convenience, we have free parking in two retail garages within the Beauvallon building (east-facing side). Both garages are accessed from Lincoln Street between 9th and 10th Avenues. Parking in these garages is available on a first-come, first-served basis. **If you are attending a large course/event at the MWDI, we recommend arriving early in case the garages fill and alternative parking must be secured. Be aware – the garages come up quickly after you cross 9th Avenue and both have left lane entrances. All numbered spaces within both retail parking garages (without “Reserved” signs) are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Do not park in any spaces with a red sign that says “Matrix” or “KCNC.” Do not park in the residential parking. Residential garages are at the back of the retail garages. The north and south garages are not connected. Both have open parking available. See link for more information.
