Call for
Laser applications for dental hard tissue are a clinical reality. Exciting future applications are being developed and will be featured at this conference. An entire session will be devoted to lesion detection by optical methods. This is one of the areas of rapidly expanding interest in dental research and applications to clinical practice, especially in relation to dental caries. Soft tissue clinical applications continue to be expanded. This conference will provide a forum for presentation of both basic and applied research in laser dentistry. Presentations of clinical studies are especially welcome. Manuscripts will be reviewed prior to publication.

Papers are solicited in all dental laser and biomedical optics dental application areas including, but not limited to, the following:
  • optical methods for lesion detection, especially dental caries
  • early caries detection
  • optical coherence tomography in dentistry
  • dental 3D imaging
  • caries removal with lasers
  • caries prevention with lasers
  • laser endodontics
  • laser applications in periodontology
  • lasers and dental implants
  • laser photopolymerization
  • laser hard-tissue and soft tissue surgery
  • CO2 laser use in dentistry
  • Nd:YAG laser use in dentistry
  • Diode laser use in dentistry
  • Er:YAG/ErCr:YSGG use in dentistry
  • other wavelengths for hard or soft tissue use
  • clinical trials of lasers for dental applications
  • hard-tissue ablation and plasma production
  • laser-tissue interactions relevant to dentistry
  • wavelength and energy dependence of dental laser applications
  • translational research.
