BIOLASE, Inc., the global leader in dental lasers, has announced a clinical advisory partnership with Dr L. Stephen Buchanan that will help expand laser adoption and increase hands-on training programmes with one of the global leaders in endodontics.
Dr Buchanan has lectured and taught hands-on endodontic continuing education courses for over 30 years, both at DELabs, his state-of-the-art training facility in Santa Barbara, California, US, as well as in dental schools and symposiums around the world. He is a part-time faculty member in the endodontic departments at University of the Pacific’s Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry and at UCLA School of Dentistry. He maintains a private practice limited to Endodontics in Santa Barbara, California, and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontists and a Fellow of the International and American Colleges of Dentists.
“BIOLASE is elevating the standard of care in endodontics with their Er,Cr:YSGG Waterlase device,” said Dr Buchanan. “This technology supports single-visit RCT and minimally-invasive endodontic procedures as it very effectively cavitates sodium hypochlorite in our smallest preparations.”
“We are proud to be partnering with Dr Buchanan because of his reputation as an expert in the research and development of new technology, instruments, and techniques in Endodontics,” said John Beaver, president and chief executive officer of BIOLASE. “This partnership provides the most advanced laser technology in Endodontics for Dr Buchanan’s practice and training programmes.”
