He had been a volunteer part-time adjunct clinical instructor in the Pediatric Post-graduate Department at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston from 2006 -2017.

In 2016, Dr. Kaplan became the first pediatric dental specialist to obtain his Diplomate status in the prestigious American Board of Laser Surgery (ABLS) and was elected to be the Director of Dental Laser Surgery for the ABLS.
He has lectured nationally and internationally and has co-authored several dental articles and has been a contributing author in several dental texts including the first ever Laser Surgery Atlas for the Treatment of Infant Tongue & Lip Ties.
Dr. Kaplan was instrumental in developing the first in the country comprehensive Infant Laser Frenotomy class which has been co-presented with other specialists in the laser and lactation professions at Tufts University Dental/Medical Center in Boston. These classes are now offered throughout the USA at various universities and continuing education training centers. Last year (2018) he was the only USA based dentist to be invited to participate in an international tongue tie panel organized by the USLCA (Unites States Lactation Consultant Association).
This workshop will explore the functional assessment of TOTs, identify the possible need for a TOTs referral, and revision procedures.
