2-Day Training / 16 CE Credits 


Dental providers already possess the underlying medical background to offer these treatments. Existing patients who trust your experience and knowledge will gladly pay for these additional services, usually spending 30% more for non-insurance billed treatments. Viora Academy teaches the tools to offer non-invasive treatments that further strengthen the relationship you have with your patients, of all ages, to help them address concerns and, in turn, feel healthier, happier, and more confident!

Some of the most requested aesthetic treatments are performed using a variety of energy-based applications: Radiofrequency, intense pulsed light (IPL), and laser. Your patients are visiting other providers for these services. Capitalize on the growing demand, retaining YOUR patient base, by expanding your suite of services to include these popular treatments.
