CAPP, Aachen Dental Laser Center (AALZ) and RWTH International Academy - RWTH Aachen University have launched Lasers in Dentistry Mastership programme in Dubai, UAE. In the UAE, five groups have already completed successfully the Mastership programme and a few dozen groups in over 10 international countries. Group 6 will be starting on 21 November 2018 in Dubai, UAE.
The post-graduate Lasers in Dentistry Mastership 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.
Participants obtain sound theoretical knowledge in lectures and seminars led by renowned, competent and experienced international scientists and practitioners. Skill training sessions, exercises, practical applications, and hands-on practical every module day guide participants towards using lasers successfully and professionally in their own treatments.
The programme targets dentists who would like to specialise in certain wavelengths. Over the course of one year, participants are taught fundamental physical and technical knowledge, and how to recognise primary, secondary, and tertiary indications on 12 attendance days split into 3 modules held over 3 educational blocks. This programme concludes with an ofﬁcial certiﬁcate of RWTH Aachen University, and is offered in collaboration with the RWTH Aachen International Academy, the post-graduate education wing of the University.

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 decides after successful completion.
