Course Overview :
In this combination lecture and hands-on course, attendees will be introduced to the concept of laser frenectomies, an increasingly popular method by which dentists and physicians can treat tongue- and lip-ties in their patients.

In this course, attendees will receive an overview of best practices regarding tongue- tie assessment and treatment, and will participate in a hands-on workshop on how to remove tongue-ties through the use of soft-tissue lasers. They will also have the opportunity to watch live video feed of infant frenectomies, as well as hearing from an office administrator about billing and reimbursement issues.

Day 1 of the course will consist of :

· Introduction to laser tie intervention
· Ankyloglossia 101, including its history and impact on newborns, necessary terminology, assessment protocols, and the team approach to intervention
· Information on Oral Physiology, including variations in oral development and specific bodywork interventions to aid Ankyloglossia recovery

Day 2 of the course will consist of :

· Discussion of the potential role of soft tissue lasers in conducting frenectomies, as well as a live video demonstration of supervised frenectomies, which will be conducted in TUSDM clinical space
· Q&A with the instructors and a variety of experts
· Discussion of screening procedures and patient care.

Day 3 of the course will consist of :

· Detailed discussion of laser tissue interaction
· Hands-on workshop on pig jaws

IBCLC's and other non-dentists who are not qualified to use soft-tissue lasers may choose to attend only Days 1 and 2 as observers.
