Synopsis:
Dental anxiety and fear continue to be a prominent concern amongst our patients and is certainly a prevalent negative psychosocial condition in the general population. Early studies performed in the United States by Dionne et al, found that 51% of respondents to their survey reported being somewhat nervous, very nervous or terrified about going to the dentist.

In recent years, sedation and anesthesia in dentistry have been a popular topic highlighted by conflicting standards of care and State-specific regulations, controversy over in-office practice models, safety outcomes measurements, required training for dentists, efficacy, and the utility for patients other than those reporting high levels of fear.

According to the most recent ADA guidelines, minimal sedation should carry a large inherent margin for safety, such that the drugs and or techniques used should never render unintended loss of consciousness. Minimal sedation is usually achieved via inhalation and/or enteral (e.g., oral, sublingual) medications, and dosing of a medication to induce minimal sedation is typically limited to a single dose or multiple doses in which the cumulative amount does not exceed the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) maximum recommended dose (MRD) for unmonitored home use. By definition, patients under minimal sedation retain the ability to independently and continuously maintain an airway and respond normally to tactile stimulation and verbal command. Although cognitive function and coordination may be modestly impaired, ventilatory and cardiovascular functions are unaffected. Most State dental boards do not require any additional training or certification for licensed dentists to provide minimal sedation.

This course presents the foundations for understanding minimal sedation. Important definitions for sedation concepts are discussed so the participant can understand what makes minimal sedation uniquely safe for the dental patient and practitioner. The Spectrum of Sedation is reviewed so participants can understand how minimal sedation and patient parameters such as responsiveness, airway, cardiovascular and respiratory functions compare to other levels of sedation and anesthesia.


Educational Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
  • Discuss definitions appropriate to the topics of sedation and anesthesia
  • Discuss the Sedation Spectrum and understand the levels of sedation
  • Compare the routes of drug administration with an emphasis on the enteral and inhalation routes
  • Compare the patient parameters – responsiveness, airway, cardiovascular and respiratory function – for each of the four levels of sedation/anesthesia
  • Discuss the current Regulatory environment for sedation and anesthesia in the dental office

I thought this online Series was excellent! I'm an associate at an office doing a lot of sedation and so I've had quite a bit of exposure to it already. This course was excellent in teaching me the foundations of minimal sedation, patient selection, and patient management for great dental experiences. I was even able to teach the other docs in my group a few things that they didn't learn in their courses. This series satisfied the requirement for me to get certified by my state dental board. Thanks to these two awesome guys for the great course!
Interesting and to the point!
