Increase your ability to manage and treat fearful and medically compromised patients safely…

Our IV Sedation Certification Course allows dentists to treat anxious and fearful patients in a comfortable, stress-free environment. Throughout our didactic sessions and three day clinical rotation you’ll learn:
  • Moderate IV sedation techniques
  • Patient evaluation
  • Airway management
  • Management of complications
In the classroom, you’ll get hands-on simulation experience with Sim Man 3G™. Then, during your clinical rotation, you’ll get unmatched live patient training with a 1:1:1 student:patient:faculty ratio. Upon successful completion, this course prepares the practicing dentist and team to safely administer IV moderate sedation in the dental office. The course meets or exceeds the “ADA Guidelines for Teaching Pain Control and Sedation to Dentists and Dental Students”
