About This Course

Sedation and analgesia are frequently administered to patients in-office to relieve the pain and anxiety associated with dentistry. This four-hour course offers a comprehensive look at the science of oral sedation for both children and adults. Essential components which will be reviewed include: pharmacology of commonly used sedatives, appropriate protocols and safety provisions for planning an oral sedation, monitoring and recovery, the recognition and management of airway problems, and emergency management of adverse events. This course is designed to provide reinforcement of recognized standards for administering moderate sedation in order to maximize the benefits of oral sedation to the patient while minimizing risks to patient safety. The target audiences for this course are dentists administering oral sedatives in an effort to obtain moderate sedation and pediatric dentists utilizing oral sedation. For dentists practicing in the state of Tennessee, this course is designed to fulfill the continuing education hours required for those practitioners wishing to maintain a limited or comprehensive sedation permit and will include a review of the rules and regulations pertaining to sedation of the Tennessee Board of Dentistry.
