The Pioneer Elite features technology that provides more convenience, easier operation, more flexibility and unmatched portability. Engineered with class-leading advancements, the Pioneer Elite provides unsurpassed capabilities continuing Pioneer Lasers, LLC’s tradition of quality and revolutionary products. The Pioneer Elite is the truly portable diode laser. The unique design features a docking cradle that secures the Pioneer Elite on a countertop and provides a charging base for the rechargeable battery. The single most important feature of a handpiece is how comfortable it feels in your hand during use. The ergonomic design creates a handpiece that is a pleasure to work with for every procedure. Simply snap a new tip onto the handpiece and you are ready to lase! The Pioneer Elite utilizes the 810 nanometer wavelength, the proven technology in dental diode lasers. This wavelength has a high affinity for gingival soft tissue making it an invaluable tool for esthetic sculpting, accessibility, isolation and the healing of soft tissue. The Pioneer Elite comes standard with over 30 pre-set clinical procedures installed along with the ability to easily create your own programs. Included in the software design is the ability to use the “Quick Set” feature which allows you to simply select Mode, Set Power, and Go! Nothing could be easier.
Touch Screen Monitor
The intuitive design and navigation ability make program selection and activation simple and easy. The Pioneer Elite comes with over 30 pre-set programs installed and the ability to create 8 personalized programs.
Inverted Screen Capability
Unique software design allows for incredible user flexibility by keeping the screen readable in multiple orientations.
Uni-Dose Fiber Tips
The Pioneer Elite provides sterile, uni-dose fiber tips that are pre-stripped, cleaved and polished to ensure the best tip for every procedure. The tips are available in standard length (6 mm) and Perio length (9 mm) allowing you to select the tip that best fits the procedure.
The therapy handpiece enables you to provide temporary pain relief to patients with TMJ as well as biostimulation and inflammation reduction.
Electronic Key Lock
Provides safety with simplicity of touch screen entry.
Ergonomic Handpiece Design
The handpiece was designed using an arc design to improve the fit and comfort during use. The design works with the angle of the tip to create an almost 90 degree angle increasing accessibility even in the posterior region.
Wireless Foot Pedal
Eliminates a cord in the operatory.
Reset button - immediate frequency reset.
LED communication indicator.
Lithium Polymer Battery
The Pioneer Elite comes installed with a state of the art lithium polymer battery that provides 45 minutes of continuous lasing time. The Pioneer Elite can also be powered directly by the AC power supply used to power the recharging cradle ensuring you always have power.
Combined with an in-office hydrogen peroxide whitening gel, the whitening handpiece activates the gel for faster, more effective in-office whitening.
The Pioneer vaporizes and modifies soft tissue without bleeding and usually without injected anesthetics.
Use the Pioneer Diode Laser to prepare gingival tissues in three dimensions for fixed Prosthodontic impressions and to control tissue adjacent to restorative preparations.
When used in contact, diode laser energy only penetrates about 200 microns, making it safe as well as effective. Surface tissues are vaporized in a controlled manner, and the underlying connective tissue is coagulated and the resulting laser wound is self-sealing, requiring no suturing.
Yes we implemented a free of charge loaner program for Pioneer lasers that need to be sent to our equipment service facility. This program is in effect for both the Pioneer Elite and Pioneer Pro lasers that are still under warranty. Contact Pioneer Customer Service for more information at (877) 236-4402.
The Pioneer Pro and the Pioneer Elite are under warranty for two years including costs for labor, parts, loaner and shipping. The warranty for the Pioneer Elite exchangeable battery is one year.
The term laser stands for "Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation", which means a device that produces and amplifies light. The wavelength of the light produced will determine what types of tissues can be modified by the light’s energy. Light waves that emanate from within the visible and near-infrared portions of the electromagnetic spectrum will be readily absorbed into body pigments like melanin in the skin, and heme found within hemoglobin in blood. They will have virtually no affinity for water and thus, it won’t be absorbed at the surface as it enters soft tissues. Wavelengths located within the mid to far infrared range are attracted to water and the hydroxyapatite crystals that are found within bone and teeth. Thus, these wave lengths are primarily used in hard tissue lasers. With a frequency of 810+/-20 nanometers, the Pioneer Diode Laser’s wavelength falls into the lower end of the near-infrared spectrum, making it suitable for soft-tissue applications.
1. Scalpel and sutures generally cause more hemorrhage and less vision during surgery and are more susceptible to post-op swelling and infection than laser surgeries.
2. Electro-surgery units are less precise and may cause more tissue damage. Additionally, they provide less access to difficult areas adjacent to vital tooth structures, amalgams, and implants. Longer healing periods are typically required and patients require to be “grounded” during the procedure.
Today's bonding techniques require total control over the operative sites; the diode laser ensures the ability to achieve that. No other instrument ever available to the dentist has had the capability of such precise tissue sculpting. The diode laser is the least traumatic of all competing and conventional instruments. The Pioneer Diode Laser is affordable and small enough for every practice, simple to operate and easily learned and incorporated into your practice.
Lasers are the most precise, least traumatic, and will heal with less post-operative pain than any other technique.
When the Pioneer Diode Laser is used, it saves chair time. It makes current procedures more effective and procedures beyond my conventional training simplified because of the complete hemostasis and lack of suturing required. Adding the laser to my current soft tissue procedures and just one frenectomy or fibroma each month will generate more income than the payment for the laser.
Some states require dental practices to implement a laser safety program to assure a safe environment for both workers and patients. It is best to have written procedures in this regard. Pioneer Lasers, LLC recommends adoption of a Laser Safety Program and appointment of a Laser Safety Office.

As each clinical situation is unique, the appropriate power setting is primarily determined by the type of lesion, the vascularity of the soft tissue, for example, a more fibrotic tissue requires higher power; or the selected mode of operation, continuous or pulse. The speed of cutting desired by the operator will also determine the power intensity selected, it is always best to use the lowest power setting that will effectively modify the tissue while avoiding tissue charring.
