Journal of Laser Dentistry

May 10, 2022 -  The Journal of Laser Dentistry is a labor of love and science and clinical applications in everyday dentistry with a focus on new and novel techniques and applications of lasers and light in dentistry.  The Academy of Laser Dentistry editorial team led by Dr. Don Patthoff, Gail Siminovsky and John Sulewski have accepted the indescribable challenge of publishing in today's environment.  The upcoming issue of the Journal of Laser Dentistry is planned for release in June 2022. 


The Journal of Laser Dentistry Volume 25.1 provides new opportunities for collaboration and sharing in the Journal of Laser Dentistry. This issue marks a renewal and recognition of an expanded focus that included personal interest stories, professional success stories, practice solutions, ethical dilemmas, challenges and successes within dentistry and case studies and research abstracts and articles. Technological advances with lasers have occurred over the last 30 years. Through the Journal of Laser Dentistry, the Academy of Laser Dentistry aims to connect dentistry to improvements of patient care with the successful use of lasers and light based technology.
