Dr. Mel Burchman Provides Photobiomodulation Consult to Slovenia Dentist via Teledentistry

Updated: Dec 23, 2021

The power of Teledentistry & Photobiomodulation (low level laser therapy). Meet Zana, a 3 year old, currently undergoing chemotherapy for brain cancer in Slovenia. She as many cancer patients suffers from oral mucositis, a common & debilitating complication of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis causes the mucosal lining of the mouth to break down, forming painful ulcers. The lining of the mouth is particularly vulnerable to chemotherapy & radiation. Many patients that develop oral mucositis suffer so severely they are unable to eat, and must be tube fed. Now imagine being a 3 year old, and the Mom of a little one undergoing treatment for brain cancer...during a pandemic, and suffering from oral mucositis. Her chemotherapy will continue on to June. This week, Dr. Mel Burchman, photobiomodulation expert, consulted via telehealth with dentist, Dr. Mojca Novljan in Slovenia to virtually guide her through a photobiomodulation session to treat Zana. PBMT will help heal these lesions rapidly. To learn more about all of the benefits of photobiomodulation visit www.GMALaserDentitry.com/training

The dental applications of PBM are enormous and you will wonder how you practiced dentistry without it! GMA Laser Education
