Cerritos, Calif. ––March 18, 2021 –– The Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry (IALD) is pleased to announce periodontist Dan Indech, DDS has successfully completed the Instructor Candidacy program and is now a Certified Instructor, qualified to teach the LANAP® protocol for True Bone Regeneration and the LAPIP protocol for peri-implantitis.
“We are excited to welcome Dr. Indech and continue to grow the roster of clinically calibrated and standardized instructors. As our instructor team expands, we increase the number of clinicians trained, and ultimately, the number of patients receiving LANAP and LAPIP treatment,” states Dawn M. Gregg, DDS, CEO and Training Director for the IALD.
Clinicians worldwide have found consistent, reproducible, successful results in treating periodontitis and peri-implantitis with the LANAP and LAPIP protocols. The key to reproducibility is rooted in the standardized, hands-on training process led by IALD Certified Instructors and is unique in dentistry. The IALD is the only active laser training institute with live-patient, hands-on clinical instruction that is recognized by the American Dental Association’s Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP) and the Academy of General Dentistry’s Program Approval for Continuing Education (AGD PACE).
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. The IALD’s strict standardization and calibration processes ensures that no matter which instructor is teaching, each student graduates with the same knowledge and skills needed to achieve successful LANAP and LAPIP results.
“I applied for Instructor training as soon as I could after completing my initial 12 months of training,” remarks Dan Indech, DDS. “As a periodontist who was hesitant to adopt laser therapy, I finally chose to add LANAP and LAPIP therapies in 2019. I was so impressed with the IALD’s training program and thrilled with the regenerative results I saw in my patients I wanted to solidify my knowledge to the highest level possible.”
“I’ve finally seen the light and can’t wait to enlighten others,” adds Dr. Indech.
