This course offers instruction in all aspects of inhalation analgesia and oral conscious sedation, including effective methods in dealing with anxiety control in general practice. Our faculty specializes in adult learning by utilizing a multimedia approach which enhances knowledge and retention. Participants will learn various techniques and protocols designed to achieve certification in nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation as well as competency in providing oral anxiolysis. A patient-centered approach to care is emphasized with lecture on appropriate medication section, monitoring and practical emergency management. Case studies will augment the delivery of key points and a problem-based learning approach is encouraged so that each participant's questions are addressed.
• Describe the most recent ADA Guidelines and state regulations for anxiolysis and sedation
• Provide safe and effective anxiolysis and sedation using oral and inhalation techniques
• Identify and describe areas of controversy regarding traditional dental relaxation methods and approaches to analgesia
• Discuss new pharmacologic agents and their optimal use in dentistry
