About

Bio

Dr. Pohlhaus is a native Baltimorean and had been practicing in Linthicum since 1992. He developed an interest in minimally invasive dentistry early in his career and began using dental lasers in 2004. He has devoted his career to introducing his patients and colleagues to the benefits of lasers. Dr. Pohlhaus has been lecturing on the topic of dental lasers since 2005 and is a trainer for Fotona USA's "Phast Start" Laser course for new owners of the Lightwalker Laser. He was also on the faculty at the University of Maryland Dental School in the Department of Oncology and Diagnostic Sciences for twenty years. Dr. Pohlhaus also runs the Dominican Dental Project, an annual dental service project in that country.
