  • Gain a better understanding of the available tools and resources for successful patient selection, case presentation, assessment, and benefit from 1 on 1 proctoring experience in Infant Tongue-Tie Releases. We crafted this opportunity in response to an outpouring of interest in the work Dr. Pinto has been doing here at The Breathe Institute, as well as the most updated protocols she has developed in concert with Dr. Soroush Zaghi and the rest of our multidisciplinary functional team. This program prepares the advanced practitioner with the confidence and knowledge to best treat their littlest tongue/lip tie patients as well as how to communicate and educate their families most effectively. Beyond that, we also support you and your team in taking all they have learned and actually incorporating it into your practice! From patient experience, to family/patient communications and optimizing treatment plan acceptance, you know you are in a position to identify and treat countless cases of sleep disordered breathing and other maladies before they even happen, and our goal is to help you do it!

A good surgical laser for cutting soft tissue must be able to vaporize soft tissue, while at the same time efficiently coagulating surgical margins. Not all laser wavelengths are suitable to comply with both requirements. This course focuses on the practical aspects of soft tissue laser surgery and on the fundamental processes involved in the laser-tissue interaction; it helps attendees learn how deep the laser beam cuts and how deep the coagulation and hemostasis extend into the surgical margins. Our hands-on participation lab is designed to train attendees on what surgical lasers can do safely and efficiently. The Laser Surgery and Safety Basic Knowledge Certification Curriculum for this Course were developed by the American Laser Study Club (ALSC). The ALSC’s curriculum overcomes the known limitations of many laser dentistry courses and includes the detailed physics of soft tissue ablation and coagulation with laser and hot tip (non-laser) devices. The hands-on laser wetlab on tissue samples will include laser safety instructions, frenectomy simulations and other surgical laser procedure demonstrations. Laser instructions will be assisted by the guest speaker Peter Vitruk, PhD, MInstP, CPhys, a laser physicist who founded the American Laser Study Club and LightScalpel Inc.
