The Laser in Dentistry Mastership programme starts on 23 March 2022 in Dubai, UAE. It is awarded by the RWTH International Academy - RWTH Aachen University and Aachen Dental Laser Center (AALZ) and organised by CAPP with faculty lead Prof Dimitris Strakas and it is accredited for 84 CME. This is a one-year clinical specialisation course.
The Lasers in Dentistry Mastership postgraduate programme targets dentists who would like to specialise in certain wavelengths. The course consists of skill training sessions, exercises, practical applications, and hands-on training in every module to guide participants towards using lasers successfully and professionally in their own treatments. Over the period of one year, participants are taught fundamental physical and technical knowledge, and how to recognise primary, secondary, and tertiary indications during 12 attendance days split into 3 modules (4 days each). This programme concludes with Module 3 which takes place in Aachen, Germany with an examination and an ofﬁcial certiﬁcate of RWTH Aachen University and RWTH Aachen International Academy, the postgraduate education wing of the University.
The 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 programme 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 and dental Erbium lasers. Relevant theories and application options pertaining to laser use in dentistry are taught for those wavelengths.
The course is divided into 3 modules requiring 12 days of attendance over a one year period and upon completion it offers the participants a chance to obtain a Mastership Certificate (Certification course), recognising them as a specialist in laser therapy in dentistry from the RWTH International Academy - RWTH Aachen University, the post-graduate education wing of the University. Module 1 includes a Laser Safety Ofﬁcer course that will allow the participants to obtain a Laser Safety Officer (LSO) certification: Laser construction, function, and handling.
The modules of the Mastership programme are a subset of the RWTH Aachen University 2 years Master of Science programme „Lasers in Dentistry“ and qualify for an upgrade into that programme if the participants so decide after successful completion.
