Series Details
Minimal Adult Sedation instruction is now available online exclusively on Dentaltown.com! This 10-part dental CE series is designed to meet the current American Dental Association Guidelines for Teaching Pain Control and Sedation. Offering a total of 19.5 CE hours, this course was specifically designed to provide the necessary didactic training and patient experiences to qualify for a minimal sedation permit in States or Provinces where one is required. Please note that the rules for minimal sedation are State- and Province-specific, please review the rules for the State in which you practice to ensure this course will apply. If you have questions, please contact the course director, Dr. Jason Goodchild, for assistance. Dr. Goodchild’s email is: drjgoodchild@gmail.com. This 10-part continuum offers instruction in all aspects of adult minimal sedation to include oral sedation with and without nitrous oxide and oxygen, as well as effective methods in dealing with anxiety control in general dental practice. Participants will learn various techniques or “protocols” and will be provided a comprehensive review on selecting appropriate candidates, recommended equipment, selecting appropriate sedative medications, physiologic monitors, and managing medical emergencies.

The course is divided into ten modules:
Module 1: Introduction to Minimal Sedation
Module 2: Pharmacology 101
Module 3: Patient Assessment
Module 4: Pharmacology of Oral Sedative Medications
Module 5: Reversal Agents
Module 6: Minimal Oral Sedation Protocols – Part 1
Module 7: Post-operative Analgesics
Module 8: Minimal Oral Sedation Protocols – Part 2
Module 9: Physiologic Monitoring for Minimal Sedation
Module 10: Recognition and Management of Medical Emergencies

Courses
Jason H. Goodchild, DMD Introduction to Minimal Sedation
Speaker: Jason H. Goodchild, DMD
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.

Dr. Mark Donaldson Pharmacology 101: Interesting and Useful Pharmacology!
Speaker: Dr. Mark Donaldson
The goal of making dental pharmacology interesting and useful at chairside beginning on Monday morning will be emphasized in this course. The clinical significance of bioavailability, half-life of medications, and other pharmacology terms which can affect dental treatment are highlighted. Advances in prescribing as a result of human genome mapping are simply described since this will make you a better prescriber.

Jason H. Goodchild, DMD Patient Assessment for Minimal Sedation
Speaker: Jason H. Goodchild, DMD
This course is intended to help dental providers select appropriate patient candidates for minimal sedation. It will review medical history taking techniques with an emphasis on evaluating patients for minimal sedation dentistry. Patient examples are used to help guide the discussion, and current dental guidelines for common medical conditions are reviewed.

Dr. Mark Donaldson “We Can Do Better Than The White-Knuckle Technique!” - Pharmacology of Oral Sedatives
Speaker: Dr. Mark Donaldson
This course cements the building blocks to become a better prescriber and a better clinician in helping dental patients relax. The goal of understanding the different oral medications for inoffice adult minimal sedation will help providers in applying the right drug at the right dose for the right procedure.

Dr. Mark Donaldson
Speaker: Dr. Mark Donaldson
While oral medications for in-office adult minimal sedation are inherently safe when providers prescribe the right drug at the right dose and the right procedure, one may be less sure if it is for the right patient; especially when our patients are not truthful about the drugs they consume. This course complements other adult minimal sedation courses by emphasizing the importance of knowing the “how” and the “when” to employ reversal agents in keeping patients safe.

Jason H. Goodchild, DMD Physiologic Monitoring for Minimal Sedation
Speaker: Jason H. Goodchild, DMD
This course discusses the essentials of monitoring dental patients while undergoing minimal sedation. This is accomplished by both direct assessment (visual and verbal) and monitoring the patient’s vital signs. For minimal sedation, the vital signs that must be monitored are blood pressure, pulse, and oxygen saturation through the use of a blood pressure cuff and pulse oximeter.

Dr. Mark Donaldson What Needs to Be in Your Medical Emergency Kit and Why
Speaker: Dr. Mark Donaldson
Although uncommon, medical emergencies in the dental setting can range from non-life-threatening conditions to fatal situations and oral healthcare professionals (OHCPs) must be capable of recognizing and managing them appropriately. Since patient safety is always our primary concern, this program reviews the proper use and delivery of the essential emergency medications included in a basic drug emergency kit which should be available in every dental office.
