IRVINE, Calif., July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ : BIOL ), the global leader in dental lasers, is hosting a series of BIOLASE User Community events to provide dental offices with an informal platform to discuss the technical and practical aspects of laser dentistry. The goal of the program is to demonstrate how lasers can be used to help grow dental practices; to show dentists the many procedures that can be performed with dental lasers; and to create a forum for open discussions with dentists. The program is free and open to all dentists and their staff members.
"We are thrilled to open our doors to area dentists," said John Beaver, Interim CEO, Senior Vice President, and CFO of BIOLASE. "The BIOLASE User Community initiative is an important part of our previously announced Southern California campaign to increase awareness and education about laser dentistry and the region's oral health and dental care. By hosting these monthly discussions, we aim to arm dentists with the tools they need to enhance their practices and educate their patients about the benefits of lasers and the role they play in reducing the pain and discomfort associated with dentistry."
The BIOLASE User Community sessions are held monthly and provide attendees with the opportunity to meet and ask company representatives and BIOLASE laser users questions about dental lasers. Setup, care, and maintenance are common topics, along with how to talk to patients about the use and benefits of minimally-invasive all-tissue dental lasers, including the Waterlase Express™.
This initiative comes on the heels of the launch of the Waterlase Express in 2017. With the Waterlase Express, BIOLASE introduced a smaller and more affordable laser. Prior to the launch of the device, lasers were out of reach for many dentists. The Waterlase Express enables almost every dentist the option of adopting laser dentistry into their practice. The BIOLASE User Community program is designed to further support that mission: no dentist – and no patient – should be denied the opportunity of top quality oral healthcare.
The next BIOLASE User Community event will be held on Friday, July 20 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at BIOLASE World Headquarters at 4 Cromwell in Irvine, California. To learn more about the BIOLASE User Community series, and to sign up for the July event, please visit events.wcli.org.
