Frequently Asked Questions

Why would a Dental Hygienist use a laser?

There are many advantages to laser hygiene, including bacterial reduction, superior coagulation, no allergic reactions, reduces pain and swelling, and it is effective on every segment of the population regardless of age. Marketing laser hygiene can be a beneficial technique to attract new patients and to reassure retention with existing patients.

How does a diode laser treat a periodontal pocket?

The diode laser promotes wound healing by infiltrating the periodontal pocket with Photons, allowing energy to collect in the mitochondria, and giving the body a chance to heal itself. Laser energy allows fibroblast to help create attachments. Collagen helps hold tissue tight, decreasing pocket depth.

Can my Dental Hygienist use lasers for treating periodontal disease?

Most states allow dental hygienists to use lasers. We recommend that all clinicians stay abreast of the latest state regulations and statutes.

What kind of laser can my dental hygienists use?

The most common laser is a diode laser. Diodes tend to be a favorite choice due to affordability.

What services do Dental Hygienist provide with a diode laser?

Your state board act will define the services allowed by the RDH. However, the most common use of lasers by the RDH is to support periodontal health, treatment of painful aphthous ulcers, and herpetic lesions.

What setting does a Dental Hygienist use with a laser?

Correct settings are dependent on many variables including the type of laser, contact tissue, pigmentation, power density, spot size, target temperature, and intended outcome of service. Upon completion of the HM certification program, you will be confident in choosing the correct setting on your laser.

How much will it cost me to equip my hygiene rooms with a laser?

Equipping hygiene rooms with a diode laser does not need to break the bank, and you will recoup the investment very quickly. Diode investments range between $2700 - $8000. A HM coach can help you understand the diodes that are available on the market and which ones fit your needs. We do not work for laser companies and do not get paid for our recommendations. You will receive an unbiased opinion.

Can the training and certification be provided to my RDH’s at my office?

Yes, Hygiene Mastery coaches can come to your practice to deliver a private training session.

What kind of support do you offer after the training/certification?

Your investment goes way beyond the hands on certification/training. We invite you to reach out to us and allow us to continue to answer your questions and provide insight beyond our time together in person.

How much is the HM Laser Hygiene Certification?
