The Academy of Laser Dentistry Announces ALD 2023 Keynote Speaker

The Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD), an international, professional membership association, recently announced that Nick Clausen, MBA, will be the keynote speaker during Dentistry’s Laser Meeting, ALD2023, which is taking place on April 21st to April 22nd in Dallas.

Clausen is well known and respected in laser dentistry circles, for his passion for helping dentists optimize their laser use to increase practice profitability and boost ROI on their laser investments. He is the ALD’s Manufacturers Council Chair also the Director of Laser Mastery for Fortune Management. As the owner and founder of Dental Laser Coaching, he worked as a trainer for most of the leading laser companies including Biolase & Convergent Dental.

“We are thrilled to have Nick opening our 30th Anniversary Conference & Exhibition,” said ALD Executive Director Gail Siminovsky, CAE. He shares the passion of our individual and corporate members for changing dentistry for the better with lasers. There are very few people better than Nick to demonstrate how lasers can be utilized in everyday dentistry to boost practice performance and patient care.”

Clausen’s keynote address is entitled, “Lasers for Practice Success - How to Leverage Your Laser to Transform Your Business.”  During this session, attendees will learn the following:

How lasers dentistry can create a better patient experience and better clinical results. 

Optimal laser implementation can also lead to compounded practice growth when done with intention and the entire team is involved. 

How to leverage your laser to increase profitability by attracting more new patients and 

increasing case acceptance and ‘same-day-dentistry.’

This keynote is especially relevant because dental lasers are unique tools that can be used on multiple clinical applications resulting in more conservative and cleaner outcomes that yield a better patience experience. Laser utilization should also positively impact the practices bottom line.  Despite this, transformation doesn’t just happen. In order to achieve all the aforementioned results, the dentist must understand a few things they may have never done before, both clinically and on the management side of their business. 

According to Claussen, “Change can be hard for some people. But the change required for laser optimization and transformative results is not harder, it’s just different.  I’m excited this year’s ALD annual meeting focus is on ‘Lasers For Practice Success’.  This will give dentists proven keys to get the most out of their Laser technology for yourself, your patients and your practice’s economic strength.”

ALD 2023 is two days, Friday, and Saturday, with a pre-conference certification program taking place on Thursday April 20th. On Friday and Saturday morning, the main stage presentations will be a mix of Ted Talk-style sessions and panel discussions. Afternoon workshops will provide a deeper exploration of the morning topics. 

“The ALD is changing dentistry. Our conference attendees set themselves above the rest because lasers make dentistry kinder and gentler,” said Simonovsky. “Whether you’re a private practitioner or part of a DSO or group practice, you’ll benefit from the ALD’s 30th Anniversary Conference theme, “Lasers for Practice Success”.
