WHY LEARN IV SEDATION?

Were you aware that the average dental fear patient needs $1000 in care for every year since their last dental visit?

Practices performing IV sedation attract patients that will increase your productivity and advance the image of your practice as a leader in the level of care offered in your community. 

IV Sedation Training for Dentists LLC uses a unique approach for your didactic training.  You’ll complete 60 hours of didactic study, including 35 hours of live interactive virtual training plus 25 hours of classic classroom training.  

A COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING

Your training will cover airway management, medical emergencies, and includes ACLS certification as part of the curriculum.  You’ll learn practical ways to implement sedation in your practice, and also receive free bonus materials on how to treatment plan most effectively with sedation patients. And you’ll have access to online material after the live presentations via your online account.

You’ll also receive 20 live patient experiences over four days of clinical training. In many cases, a separate dentist will perform operative and surgical procedures to allow you to concentrate on learning the intricacies of safe IV sedation.

Our course uniquely teaches you safe and proven protocols in oral sedation, IV sedation (with or without oral premedication) and the use of NuCalm/Nitrous Oxide (both separately and with IV sedation).

Learning Objectives:

  • Define and explore the levels of sedation continuum to distinguish between conscious and unconscious sedation.

  • Understand how to properly evaluate a patient for suitability and safety, including their medical history and physical exam.

  • Develop confidence at monitoring patients during sedation.

  • Learn how to apply principles of oral sedation, IV sedation and NuCalm to obtain predictable clinical results.
  • Gain competency in venipuncture and administering sedation medications safely.

  • Understand the pharmacology and potential drug interactions with oral and IV sedatives.

  • Know how to react and properly handle complications and medical emergencies.
