Martin Kaplan, DMD is a dental assistant trainer through South Eastern Regional Tech Dental and Blue Hills Regional Dental Assisting. He is also an instructor for laser treatment of the post graduate orthodontic department at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.

There is a tremendous amount of controversy around this subject that is not necessary. Dentistry does have the expertise to assist our youngest dental patients by proper care of their oral structure. In this course, attendees will be better able to understand how to diagnose and treat patients when it is necessary and also learn what limitations are to your success. Attendees will learn which tools are best and why. The reasons will be fact and not fiction. In the current environment where many parents were told that formula feeding is best and yet the current lack of formula supply problems exists. We are better able to have answers to help our patients if they never wanted formula or were told they could not breastfeed.

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Discuss biological background for evaluation for treatment
  • Identify reasons for multidisciplinary approach to care
  • Compare growth and development and their effect on oral physiology
  • Examine the myths of laser physics as taught by many
  • Review laser safety and protocols
  • Determine when to treat or not treat
  • Explain how to handle post-op complications
  • Determine how there is a life-long benefit to care
