2019 was a big year for us at the Wendell Learning Center (WLC). We unveiled our lineup of advanced laser dentistry courses, the Level Up series, taught to sold out courses, experimented (and struggled) with visually documenting laser dentistry, adding a microscope in the process, and met some incredible people along the way. In many ways 2019 represents our first FULL year in operation, and we’d like to extend an enormous thank you to everyone who’s been a part of our journey so far!
At the beginning of 2019 we made a commitment to be the kind of learning center that we, as dental practitioners, would like to attend ourselves. That meant intentionally engineering experiences to not only be educational but also at the same time both inspiring and fun. We placed additional emphasis on cultivating relationships and not just the ones between us and those attending our courses. We’ve tried to help catalyze relationships amongst those attending our courses as well as the much larger #SoleaNation and laser dentistry community in general.
Laser dentistry still represents a small niche in our profession, and in many ways we are the disciples spreading the word. As the word gets out, our non-laser colleagues become more curious about these lasers that can cut enamel. If you get the chance, let them know why it may be time to replace the drill!
Lastly, we’d like to thank all of those who’ve provided us feedback - and Google reviews -on our courses. We’re constantly striving to improve and have made a number of changes based on what you’ve said. We’ll see you in 2020...we’ve got some big things in store!

Dr. Heath Brantley is a Solea Laser Wizard!! I left the course with the confidence to successfully integrate the Solea Laser into my every day practice.
-Dr. Christian Cook
Great instruction. Not just technical aspects of honing skills but also a fair dose of promoting yourself, talking with patients, treatment planning and team building.
-Dr. Adam Milmont
[Dr. Brantley] is truly an expert user but maintains a humble conversational teaching style I find to be effective.
-Dr. Parimal Panchal
I took a laser course from [Dr. Brantley] which helped me leap frog ahead in the learning curve. He’s da man!
-Dr. Brad Revering
The small group size makes for a much more involved learning experience. Dr. Brantley runs the class more like a conversation than a lecture, which really makes for a great learning experience.
-Dr. Amanda Lee
Dr. Brantley is a wealth of knowledge and provided a great base to get me started. Even better is that he is still available for quick questions as they arise.
-Dr. Adam Moore
Top notch and a great venue to learn in an intimate setting
-Dr. Ford Gatgens
I was able to put all I learned into practice right away and the team members and myself were amazed at what we could accomplish after only one day of training.
- Canada Building Dental Group
Since taking a course at the Wendell Learning Center my confidence and clinical skills have skyrocketed. Thanks!
