about-ialdABOUT US


The Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry is a non-profit educational and research entity dedicated to providing outcomes-based clinical training.

Founded in 1999, by Robert H. Gregg, II, DDS and Delwin K. McCarthy, DDS, the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry’s vision has been to impact the lives of dentists, their teams and their patients by eradicating periodontitis with a new standard of care. It is our hope that the percentage of patients receiving treatment for gum disease would approximate the percentage of patients who seek general dental care.

mission-ialdOUR MISSION


Our mission is to provide relevant and timely education for effective, consistent, and successful treatment of moderate to advanced periodontitis using laser technology. It is our goal to reach more of the large number of underserved patients needing treatment for this condition but who have been avoiding necessary therapy out of fear. It is our hope that the percentage of patients receiving treatment for this disease would approximate the percentage of patients who seek general dental care.

What Clinicians Say


One of the best programs and most organized seminars I’ve ever attended. Instructor delivery was informational, factual, crisp, first rate. This seminar is a revolutionary change in thinking and approach to periodontal treatment and outcomes, especially outcomes!

Sheila L. Hardee, DDS | Hardy, VT

This is the most comprehensive learning I have done in dentistry.

Randy Stovall, DDS | Rockford, IL

The instructors are truly exceptional people. One-on-one interaction with the instructors for questions and guidance was the best part of this seminar. This is a true gift that you should give yourself!

Lynn Duboff, DMD | Rutland, VT

This seminar is the only way to develop the knowledge and skills to safely deliver laser care. I would tell others that it is worth every penny spent and time out of your office.
