COURSE SUMMARY: Incorporating photobiomodulation therapy can be a positive game changer in your clinical dental practice. Its many benefits can improve post operative healing, decrease post operative pain, edema and complications. Photobiomodulation Therapy can be safely and cost effectively implemented in your dental practice immediately, and improves the "Patient Happiness" Factor thereby improving internal referrals. Overall - a win-win for your practice and patients. Although Photobiomodulation Therapy is readily used by medical providers, physical therapists, professional athletes, chiropractors, and veterinarians, our surveys of prior course participants demonstrate a dramatic lack of knowledge about this technology by dental clinicians. Based on our recent course surveys, dental professionals described "ice packs" as the only alternative non-pharmaclogic therapy available in their toolkit, and 87% had little to zero knowledge of photobiomodulation therapy.
Join GMA Laser Education as they discuss Photobiomodulation Therapy, and how you can implement this technology in your dental practice immediately using cost effective, LED dedicated and FDA approved devices to help you improve patient outcomes while reducing or eliminating the need to prescribe opioids in your dental practice.
Upon completion of this course the learner should be able to:
Investigate why your dental hygiene department should promote photobiomodulation therapy to improve patient outcomes and contribute to the Patient Happiness Factor.
Describe medical-dental coding and billing to improve benefits available to your dental patients
Apply social media to promote photobiomodulation therapy and your dental practice
Illustrate how to encourage patient driven marketing
Demonstrate the management of post-operative complications using Photobiomodulation: How to turn a potential negative into a win-win scenario
