technology_evolutionI may be foolish at times, but never will I intentionally allow myself to look stupid.  I have a colleague who buys every hot tool, technology or gizmo the first day it is available. He doesn’t just buy it; he shows it off.  “Hey, Joe, look what I just got.”  My response is always mediocre at best. And my rule is that I never touch it, pick it up or try to use it in front of him; simply because I don’t want to look ignorant in front of him.  He loves these gadgets, no matter how complicated they seem.  I still have difficulty setting the date on my Timex watch.

If I have any interest in his new trinket, I’ll go find out about it and learn how it works before I try it in front of him.  Doctor, you might feel exactly the same way about lasers, both soft tissue and hard tissue lasers. You don’t want technology that you are not comfortable with. But you don’t need to be embarrassed, as I was.  You can get an incredible amount of hands-on training for your BIOLASE laser at the outset. You won’t have to live with that inadequate feeling when you get your laser.  They’ll get you up to speed right away.

Want proof?  Just go to  and explore your options.

• Hands-on demonstrations at dozens of US dental society meetings and international shows.

• The World Clinical Laser and Imaging Institute (WCLI) Super Symposium

• WCLI multi-day laser education sessions

• One-day education classes

• Live procedures performed in the office of a BIOLASE dentist near you

• Lunch & Learn sessions to help get you started

• Local laser Study Clubs

HELP?  Yes, Doctor, there’s plenty of it when you purchase your laser from BIOLASE. Sure, there are other places to get a laser.  But perhaps the help, education and ongoing support are more important.  What good is a laser if you don’t know how to use it efficiently, comfortably, effectively and fully?

The smart choice is BIOLASE.  It comes with the help you want, the help that will make you laser-savvy. You’ll never have to feel inadequate, as this writer has.
