The Academy of Laser Dentistry is returning to an in-person format for the first time in 2 years for its annual conference, ALD 2023: Lasers for Practice Success.

The Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD), is hosting its first in-person annual conference and exhibition in over two years.

ALD 2023 will take place April 21-22 at the Hilton Dallas/Plano/Granite Park.

ALD 2023 is 2 days, Friday, and Saturday, with a pre-conference certification program taking place on Thursday April 20th. On Friday and Saturday morning, the main stage presentations will be a mix of Ted Talk-style sessions and panel discussions. Afternoon workshops will provide a deeper exploration of the morning topics.

“Speakers and industry partners are excited to return to our annual meeting and share how dentists and hygienists use lasers and adjunctive products for success in patient care and profitability,” said Gail Siminovsky, ALD executive director.

ALD 2023’a new format addresses new travel decisions, and new ways dental professionals learn.

The ALD 2023 exhibit hall will feature the latest product lines from leading laser manufactures as well as relevant peripheral products for every laser practice: including safety equipment, digital imaging products, diagnostic aids, oral therapeutics, and oral sleep devices.

“We’ll also continue the ALD annual conference tradition of offering many hands-on workshops for dentists and hygienists,” said James Carriero, DMD, ALD conference chair. “Workshops enable us to connect our industry partners with attendees in the most effective way. You can’t get this experience from a webinar.”

Featured topics include:

  • ALD Certification – Set yourself apart from your competition
  • PBM Therapy – Pain relief and healing for your patients
  • Laser Hygiene – Lighting the front line of oral care
  • Sleep Medicine – Because many of your patients are tired of being tired
  • Laser ROI – High time to boost your bottom line
  • Soft Tissue Techniques – The bread and butter of your laser practice
  • Workflow Integration – Lasers play well with other technologies
  • Industry News – Late breaking and recent updates regarding FDA clearances, clinical protocols, research findings, product innovations and adjunctive technologies will be reported during the conference.

“Our members share a passion and camaraderie across countries and cultures that is truly remarkable,” said Siminovsky. “We’re excited to embrace our international laser community in Dallas in April.”
