The new learning center will allow BIOLASE to offer more laser training courses on-site at its headquarters in Irvine.
The BIOLASE Learning Center, a 4,587-square-foot facility, houses a main lecture hall that seats more than 50, a fully equipped, hands-on laser lab featuring the company’s latest best-in-class laser solutions, as well as group meeting rooms, a business center for guests, and a kitchen/café.

“A key part of our go-forward strategy in the transformation of BIOLASE is to offer in-depth training and support for our customers to ensure they fully understand how our systems can improve patient outcomes and help them achieve their patient and business goals,” said President and CEO Harold C.
