The LANAP protocol is the only truly regenerative gum disease treatment, rebuilding the body’s natural structures for healthier teeth and gums. The LANAP protocol received the first and only FDA clearance for True Regeneration – regeneration of new cementum, new periodontal ligaments and new alveolar bone.
LANAP Instructors are trained to teach in methods specifically molded to support adult learning styles for impact and retention. The unique live-patient training spans a twelve month period, with intensive feedback and review. IALD Instructor Certification is validated by multiple sources and requires the candidate to pass several tests and milestones over time to demonstrate a high level of understanding, exceptional presentation delivery, and expert level clinical skills.
