The University of Genoa is pleased to dedicate this two days Laser Dentistry Meeting to Paediatric Dentistry. This meeting will be an invaluable opportunity for all students, paediatric dentists and general dentists currently using or wishing to integrate laser-assisted dentistry in their practice, in the attempt to offer innovative and minimally invasive therapies that improve the quality of children’s dental care.

on Friday, a one-day Introductory Laser Course will address the fundamental concepts of Laser physics including differences in laser wavelengths, setting laser parameters, and safety. Also an in-depth discussion of all available wavelengths and their specific applications will be covered.
