BIOLASE ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT OF STRATEGIC PLAN TO PARTNER WITH POSTGRADUATE DENTAL SPECIALTY PROGRAMS ACROSS THE U.S.
Waterlase Dental Laser Adoption Expected to Grow Among Dental Residency Programs
LAKE FOREST, Calif., Aug. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOL), the global leader in dental lasers, today announced a strategic plan to partner with postgraduate dental specialty programs throughout North America, to expose new dentists to the benefits of Waterlase technology.
In the U.S., there are approximately 700 postgraduate residency programs. The programs range from one to four years and are general dentistry and specialty programs.
"If you are familiar with the technology adoption life cycle, we are in the early adopter's phase," stated John Casciano, Sales Director of Special Markets for BIOLASE. "We believe investing in postgraduate programs will accelerate the adoption curve and be mutually beneficial. The residents will learn the benefits of all tissue laser technology in dentistry while providing the latest in patient care."
"During the second quarter of 2022, we integrated our Waterlase lasers into several postgraduate programs and plan to continue this growth and integration over the next few years. There is a large appetite among dental residents to utilize state-of-the-art technology in treating patients. This is the first generation of dentists raised with new technologies as a normal part of their everyday lives," said Casciano.
Dr. Sam Low, Professor Emeritus from the University of Florida, agrees. He added, "The introduction and reinforcement of technology during postgraduate training is key to adoption of laser dentistry with the new generation of dentists. Technology was a valued part of dentistry when I began practicing, but technology is mandatory for today's modern dental practitioner."
The Waterlase dental laser offers an array of benefits for dentists and their patients—from faster procedures to less invasive treatment options. Educating postgraduate residents about the benefits of dental lasers is part of BIOLASE's continued effort to help improve patient experiences and outcomes, and raise significant awareness as to the advantages of laser dentistry.
