Course Overview:

Safely and confidently treat your anxious or fearful adult patients by performing IV moderate sedation. This comprehensive certifying course includes lectures and clinical training by the renowned Drs. Kenneth Reed, Amanda Okundaye, Andrea Fonner, Jason Brady and Stanley Malamed. Didactic discussion includes pharmacology, patient evaluation, airway management, monitors and monitoring, ECG interpretation, geriatrics, medical emergencies, post-operative analgesics and venipuncture techniques. At the final session before clinic participants will practice managing anesthesia related emergencies on a high fidelity human simulator, which will provide you with valuable hands on experience. During the clinical portion of the course, participants will start IVs and administer sedative agents and perform clinical dentistry - just like you will in private practice.

Unlike other programs, we prepare participants for real-life clinical 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 meets or exceeds the ADA guidelines for moderate sedation, which is what most states require; however, you are encouraged to look very closely at rules and regulations in your jurisdiction. 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, adjunctive 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 in a US state or Canadian province

  • Temporary, non-resident Oregon permit for international and out-of-state participants (OAGD will assist with the process).

  • A current DEA permit allowing the subscription of Schedules II/IIN through V

  • A current HeartCode® BLS card

  • A current advanced Advance Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) card

  • 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 traditional stethoscope, precordial stethoscope, blood pressure monitor, pulse oximeter, electrocardiograph and end tidal CO2 monitor to the clinical session
