BIOLASE has announced a pilot program with Einstein Healthcare Network’s residency in General Dentistry to train General Dentist residents in the use of Waterlase dental laser technology. The goal of the program is to offer residents hands-on experience with dental lasers that are becoming the gold standard of care in dentistry, allowing residents to immediately implement this technology when they enter their future practice.
“BIOLASE has a deep commitment to training the next generation of dental professionals,” said John Beaver, BIOLASE’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “It is important for us to live out our mission of advancing dentistry by empowering the next generation of dentists from Einstein’s residency program. We are honored to be part of not only the residents’ future careers by arming them with innovative technologies, but also the future relationships they will build with their patients by offering a less invasive and more positive experience.”
Einstein Healthcare Network’s residency in General Dentistry is one of the first hospital-based general dentistry programs approved by the American Dental Association. The residency is a 12 to 24 month program that admits eight residents each year, preparing graduates to practice, teach and conduct independent research.
“We are committed to actively seeking out ways to help our residents feel fully equipped to enter into general dentistry practice after leaving our program,” said Dr. George Souliman, Program Director of Postdoctoral General Dentistry Department at Albert Einstein Center in Philadelphia. “Partnering with BIOLASE to integrate laser assisted general dentistry training early on in our residents’ careers allows us to tighten the learning curve, which can positively impact a practice’s bottom line and ultimately provide a better patient experience overall.”
Waterlase dental laser systems offer many benefits for general dentists, from faster procedures to new treatment options. Educating general dentists about the benefits of dental lasers is part of BIOLASE’s continued effort to help improve patient experiences and outcomes.
