In 2000, the WCLI Institute was founded by a small group of leading researchers and dental professionals seeking a forum where they could share their ideas and experiences to further advance dental care through the latest laser technologies.
Thirteen years later, the Institute has expanded to include 3D CBCT imaging and digital impression technologies, which, like lasers, dramatically enhance the dental experience.
Today, the WCLI is the largest group of its kind with members across the globe who gather to share their expertise in an environment that encompasses education, fellowship and fun.
Lifelong learning is not just an essential integral part of today´s modern, future-oriented dental surgery; in addition, it will play a decisive part in the future if dentists wish to keep pace with scientific and technological innovations and efficiently maintain a healthy surgery structure. In cooperation with the Clinic for Dental Conservation, Periodontology and Preventive Dentistry at the University of Excellence RWTH Aachen, the Aachen Center for Laser Dentistry (AALZ) has created the first dental laser education institute in Germany.
Known for its research in laser-assisted dentistry, it cooperates nationally and internationally with major research facilities.
