Course Objectives:

Course Overview: Safely and confidently treat your anxious adult patients by performing moderate sedation. This certifying course includes lectures and clinical training by the renowned Drs. Kenneth Reed, Amanda Okundaye, Andrea Fonner and Stanley Malamed. After completing this comprehensive course, you’ll feel confident administering parenteral moderate sedation to your patients. Didactic discussion includes pharmacology, patient evaluations, airway management, medical emergencies and venipuncture techniques. At the final session participants will practice managing medical emergencies on a high fidelity human simulator, which will provide them with invaluable hands on experience. During the clinical portion of the course, participants will start IVs and administer sedative agents while performing clinical dentistry.

Unlike other programs, we prepare participants for real-life practice by having them simultaneously perform both the sedation and dentistry on a minimum of twenty patients. We allow participants to choose procedures with which they are most comfortable and we supply the appropriate, pre-screened patients for this course. This course is valuable for dentists who would like to obtain a moderate sedation permit and also those who need additional training to meet current standards. It meets or exceeds ADA standards for parenteral moderate sedation, which is the standard for most states; however, you are encouraged to look VERY closely at your State’s or Country’s laws for permit issuance. If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact us prior to registration. 

Course Objectives:

  • Discuss the appropriate patient to receive parenteral moderate sedation
  • Explain the pharmacology of the benzodiazepines, opioids and reversal agents
  • Describe venipuncture technique
  • Outline a plan for the prevention, recognition and treatment of medical emergencies that may occur with sedation

Prerequisites (Must complete before the course begins):

  • A valid dental license and approval by the Washington State Dental Quality Assurance Commission to practice in Washington State (OAGD will assist with the process)
  • A current DEA permit allowing the subscription of Schedules II/IIN through V
  • A current CPR Level C card (Basic Life Support). The BLS card must be health care provider level
  • A current advanced Advance Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Certification
  • Proof of appropriate professional malpractice insurance that specifically covers participants while treating patients
  • Two dental assistants for the clinic session
  • Each participant is required to bring a precordial stethoscope, blood pressure monitor, pulse oximeter, electrocardiograph and end tidal CO2 monitor to the clinical session
