CREDITS & ATTENDANCE
Because credit is earned on an hour-per-hour basis, your credit will reflect the hours that you attend the program. However, if you are taking this module in order to complete the “Certificate Program in Contemporary Restorative and Esthetic Dentistry” you will need to complete all of the hours listed. If you miss part of a module, you will need to make up the credits. Please keep in mind, especially when making your travel arrangements, that this module is offered on an alternating year basis.
WHAT TO WEAR
We suggest that you bring a jacket or sweater to help you adjust to the seemingly inevitable changes in meeting room temperature.
LASER CERTIFICATION EXAMINATION DETAILS
A laser clinical proficiency practical examination is included in the course. You will receive an email prior to the course asking you to indicate the wavelength of the device you wish to be tested on. The written examination for Standard Proficiency is administered online. A separate fee of $95 is payable to the Academy of Laser Dentistry should you choose to take the written examination. The online written examination should be taken within three months of the course. More details regarding the online examination will be provided during the course.
A full refund will be made if you cancel at least one month (30 total days) prior to the program. If you cancel less than 30 days prior to the program $595 will be deducted from your refund. For registrations charged to your credit card, the refund will be credited to your account. No cash refunds will be issued on charged registrations.
