BIOLASE notes the goal of the program is to offer residents hands-on experience with dental lasers that are already in use across the industry, allowing residents to immediately implement their training when joining a future practice.
“BIOLASE has a deep commitment to the endodontic specialty,” said John Beaver, President and CEO of BIOLASE. “It is important for us to live out our mission of advancing dentistry by empowering the next generation of endodontists from Einstein. 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 endodontics is one of the first hospital-based endodontic programs approved by the American Dental Association. The residency is a 24-month program that admits two 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 endodontic practice after leaving our program,” said Frederic Barnett, DMD, Chairman of the Department of Dental Medicine, and Chair and Program Director of Postdoctoral Endodontics at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. “Partnering with BIOLASE to integrate laser assisted endodontic 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.”
The Waterlase dental laser offers various benefits for endodontists, from faster procedures to new treatment options. Educating endodontists about the benefits of dental lasers is part of BIOLASE’s continued effort to help improve patient experiences and outcomes. This announcement comes on the heels of the recently developed Waterlase Endo Academy, open to all Waterlase endodontists.
