About Us

We are delighted to invite you for INTEGRATE 2016, “Hub of Laser Dentistry”, on 28th-29th February. This symposium is being hosted by M.A. Rangoonwala College of Dental Sciences & Research Centre, Pune, under the aegis of Indian Society of Periodontology and Society for Oral Laser Applications (SOLA), India, affiliated to SOLA International, Medical University of Vienna, Austria.

Dentistry has grown to achieve colossal proportions in terms of quality, skill development, innovations and training. To enhance quality care to patients, it is necessary that practitioners constantly update themselves with recent scientific developments. The need of the hour is a minimally invasive, painless, and holistic approach towards treatments provided to modern day patients.

Laser technology, an incredible invention of man, is gaining more prominence and popularity worldwide, as it aids in providing such an approach to dental treatment. Thus, with the hope to catapult laser dentistry into a higher growth trajectory, we are honoured to bring a galaxy of renowned international and national speakers in this field, through the medium of Integrate 2016. This visionary insight is a spear- headed culmination of three excellent educational bodies.

It is for the first time that MARDC - the centre of excellence for Laser Dentistry in India, The Indian Society of Periodontology - a highly proactive, professional dental speciality organisation and SOLA - a world leader in laser dentistry, are integrating to unfold all the myths and truths about this technology.

In this 2 day symposium, we ensure a scientifically-packed programme, comprising of didactic lectures, video techniques, point-counter point panel discussions, and hands –on sessions.

We are very fortunate to have with us eminent foreign faculties. Prof. (Dr) Andreas Moritz from Vienna, Austria needs no introduction. He is one of the pioneers in the world today as far as the use of Lasers in Dentistry is concerned. His research and clinical data on applications of Lasers in Dentistry is unparalleled. Joining him would be Dr. Christoph Kurzman and Dr. Markus Laky. These international speakers would be complemented with our own Indian stalwarts, who are themselves experts in the field of laser dentistry.

Pune, the Oxford of the East, beckons all to the Hub of Laser Dentistry-MARDC. So kindly mark the dates and rush in your registrations.

Laser Integrate 2016 - Epilogue

A national level symposium on lasers in dentistry INTEGRATE 2016, was hosted by the laser hub of India M A Rangoonwala college of Dental Sciences and Research Centre, Pune under the Aegis of The Indian Society of Periodontology (ISP) and Society For Oral Laser Applications (SOLA). This two day event (28 th February and 29 th February 2016), though was planned initially to amalgamate around 200 participants (including subject experts, academicians, post graduate students, and private practioners from India and abroad), exceeded its own set limits of expectations and saw an overwhelming response from around 400 individuals (including spot registrations). The symposium comprised of didactic lectures from international and national speakers regarding the various latest techniques of hard and soft tissue laser applications in the dental speciality. Experienced speakers shared their tips and tricks with laser application through pre-recorded videos of their special cases that were treated and successful through laser application. The live demonstrations was the main highlight, anticipated by one and all. An oration lecture by Prof Dr Andreas Moritz, the Wizard of Lasers in dental practice of modern times, envisaged a magnum opus portrayal of the basics and latest scientific results in laser assisted dental hard tissue treatment. The lecture on Laser Therapy in Endodontics by Dr Christoph Kurzmann, was also enthralling as he took the audience through the realms of micromanaging the pulp and its complications. Another expert faculty Dr Marcus Laky appalled one and all through a highly informative session regarding Evidence Based Laser Assisted Periodontics. The icing on the cake was definitely the session of point-counterpoint discussion that openly discussed evidence based laser application as its core ingredient. A hands on session (that was initially limited to 25 and on a populistic demand, saw 20 additional participants) provided a skilful impetus to the delegates, under the guidance and the keen insights of the expert laser faculties. This session at the end of day two, still witnessed a hall packed to full capacity, something that is seldom seen across various conferences. It was not only the Indian delegates but even the international delegates from a plethora of specialities like OMFS to Periodontology who flew down all the way from Srilanka , UAE and other Middle East countries; stood mesmerised by the entire unfolding of the programme –right from hospitality to the lectures. Needless to say, the mere registration and the presence of senior faculty members along with clinical experts, provided the necessary kudos and sealed the success schematics of the organizing committee headed by Dr Varsha Shourie, the organizing chairperson. She said that since it is difficult to travel and spend a lot of money to update ourselves with the ever changing and improving field of modern dentistry, the sole purpose of getting expert faculties under a common umbrella for the benefit of one and all was served well by this event. Dr Vivek Hegde (the President of SOLA- India) and his team, Dr Pravin Kudwa (President, ISP), Dr Balaji Manohar (Secretary, ISP) gave unconditional support towards this programme. The organizing secretary, Dr Rashmi Hegde, stated that it was only because of tireless efforts of the team of Integrate 2016 that led to the grand success of this event and confidently expressed that this event will help all the delegates since it was not just a lecture session, rather it was an arena for exchange of knowledge and ideas that had an empirical basis. It has becomes a moral obligation and a heavy duty responsibility for the team of “ INTEGRATE – 2016 “ to keep up their efforts and act as appetizers for a few more years and beam the knowledge of lasers, helping all dental practioners to achieve, a lesser cumbersome clinical practice. On a concluding note, it can be said that this is not an end but just the ushering of a new era – beamed with protons, neutrons, positrons and emitrons – the new world of LASERS. The fact that one of the most successful and perhaps a very impetus building national level event of 2016 so far; was successfully organised (surpassing all limitations of vehement and idosynchronized expectations), had all upon their feet, and the smiles on the faces of those behind the curtain, who pulled the strings at the precise moment, refuses to flatter. A bubble of enthusiasm has rippled across different specialities, demanding such a modus operandi with added hands on module at frequent intervals in near future. Though the doctrine of lasers in enduring journey that has limitless, visionary and a futuristic view, it is commendable indeed to see that the organisers tapped the pulse of all those who have an unsullied appetite for in depth knowledge regarding lasers and parted by leaving them hungry for more.
