Oral Sedation Dentistry

Are you ready to make the change?

An astonishing 30 percent of the population is afraid of the dentist. Implementing sedation gives you the skills to change these lives and renew their confidence. Not only that, sedation dentistry will allow you to handle complex cases in a shorter timeframe. Patients remember little of the appointment and feel as though hours are mere minutes. This lecture, taught by Michael Silverman, DMD, will introduce you to safely integrating sedation into your practice. You will learn how both your most frightened patients and extensive appointments can be transformed into some of the best visits.

At the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the science of sedation
  • List crucial safety provisions
  • Identify vital equipment for sedation
  • Perform key airway management techniques
  • Readily decrease or increase sedation levels
  • Convey crucial skills for communicating with a sedated patient
