The Academy of Laser Dentistry is launching the Advanced Proficiency Certification Review and Written Examination Online for the 2008-2009 program at ALD's Virtual Campus. Advanced Proficiency represents the higher level of recognition for knowledge and application of lasers used in the clinical environment. Candidates for advanced level recognition must demonstrate advanced level of clinical competency in safety and clinical use. To register visit http://laserdentistry.org/ald2009vegas/certification.cfm
Pre-requisites for this level of Certification is the completion of Standard Proficiency Certification with an Academy of Laser Dentistry Recognized Course Provider. Candidates are further required to wait one-year post their successful completion of Standard Proficiency. Candidates must be members of the Academy. Membership can be obtained when registering for the online review and exam. Eligible members have between now and March 2, 2009 to complete the review at their own pace and take the 175 multiple choice written examination from virtually anywhere with internet access. This satisfies the written exam requirement of the Advanced Proficiency process. The remote availability of this portion of Advanced Proficiency Certification helps to begin the advanced proficiency process offering the convenience of working at your own pace. The Clinical Simulation Examination can be taken in the same year as the written exam and must be completed in person in conjunction with ALD 2009, the Academy's 16th Annual Conference Exhibition in Las Vegas, NV, April 22-25th. Candidates must successfully complete the online written exam prior to participation in the Clinical Simulation exam. Candidates who successfully complete the Written and Oral exam may take the final requirement, the Oral Case Presentations, one year later, which is also offered annually at the ALD Conference.
