2020 Symposium – Veterinary Laser Medicine Session


I very much enjoy seeing the American
Laser Study Club emerge as a driving force for education both on the human
side, in the dental side, for aesthetics, and for veterinary medicine. I learn a lot and I think is a very important to exchange the experience to see how other veterinarians or how other surgeons are performing surgeries with the laser and
to benefit from each other, to have a dialogue, and to help us to treat our
patients better with the laser. You’re learning laser theory and then you are dramatically better at setting your laser for delicate procedures versus a
procedure where I can put it on a large spot or a smaller spot. I want to know
what depth I’m doing. I want to know that oral mucosa is a highly fluid filled
tissue, the laser cuts dramatically better. You can use a lot less wattage
when you’re doing that. Some of these things are things you would not normally
see in practice and you wouldn’t get from a veterinary only meeting.
This meeting gives you a little bit more theory with it, which is mixed in with
surgical procedures also. I decided to come to the American laser Study Club to learn a little bit more about lasers. Their safety, how they work. I’ve been
doing CO2 laser for many, many years now and we just acquired a therapy laser
and I wanted to just know a little bit more about tissue interaction, safety, how
I can do things better and for my patients. I’m already making new friends and
seeing some old faces. That’s always very pleasant. Continuing to learn, it’s
fantastic what we can take home from this, not only from the veterinary side,
but also from the other medical disciplines that are here.
