The Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry (IALD) held the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony announcing its new clinical training centre. The IALD Clinical Training Center will be the location of hands-on, live-patient training for the LANAP® and LAPIP™ protocols with the PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser. The PerioLase MVP-7 is manufactured by Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc.
The IALD, a not-for-profit corporation focusing on dental laser training and research, was recognised by the County of Los Angeles, the District and the City of Cerritos (United States) for its ongoing service to the community at the ribbon cutting ceremony and the critical role the clinical training centre has in the successful treatment of gum disease. The IALD donates over US$750,000 of treatment every year to local patients suffering from gum disease. As part of the training experience, patients receive comprehensive exams, X-rays, LANAP surgery and a year of follow-up care at no cost to the patient.
“We are honoured by the recognition from our community for our service,” remarked Robert H. Gregg, DDS, founder and programme director of the IALD. “With the dedicated clinical training centre, we can efficiently offer complimentary treatment to over a hundred local residents each year.”
“I have had gum disease for over 20 years and just kept putting off treatment because it was so painful and expensive,” stated Tanya, a patient treated through the IALD’s LANAP training programme. “LANAP treatment was so different. There wasn’t any pain and my gums feel so much healthier. I’m so happy and thankful for this programme and recommend it even for scared patients like me!”
“Our guiding words at the IALD are ‘It’s All About The Patient™’,” mentioned Dawn M. Gregg, DDS, chief executive officer and training director of the IALD. “Not only are we treating patients in our community, but also patients worldwide benefit as more doctors receive training on safe and effective techniques using the PerioLase® MVP-7™ for the LANAP and LAPIP protocols.”
