Objectives & Curriculum
The LA&HA Master’s Program in Laser Dentistry is an educational curriculum designed by the Laser and Health Academy to provide participants with a comprehensive level of knowledge about basic and in-depth laser principles as well as the skills and competency needed for using Fotona dental laser systems in a range of dental specialties. Participants are required to have a DDS diploma and at least 3-years of experience in dentistry. During the Program, participants are expected to gain advanced knowledge, skills and the confidence to use a Fotona dental laser system safely and successfully in their dental practices.
The program consists of theoretical lessons, hands-on activities, individual study, as well as the observation and performance of live clinical operations. After each module, the participant’s learning improvement is assessed by examination. By the end of the program, participants are required to perform and present their own 20 laser-assisted clinical cases from among all dental specialties.
After successful participation in the Master’s program, participations will receive the following title issued by the Laser & Health Academy:

The award ceremony takes place every year during the LA&HA Symposium.
Participants can finish the LA&HA Master’s Program within one year, in five modules for 3-4 days at a time. There is also an option to extend attendance over a maximum of three years.
Between the modules, participants are required to learn by themselves, as well as assess their own knowledge on-line. This modular approach enables participants to implement their knowledge and skills in the dental office immediately after each module. The program involves 200 active hours of training.
Participants can choose the most appropriate location for the clinical modules from the list of LA&HA’s partnering dental education centers, whereas the location of the first module is at the premises of LA&HA’s offices in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The official language of the LA&HA Master’s Program is English, however, if there is a group of participants speaking another language, the lectures can be organized in that language.
Number of participants
Modules are conducted in a motivating atmosphere with attendance limited to between 6-10 participants.
