Course Description:

Do you know where to draw the line between providing oral sedation to your pediatric patients and when to bring in a specialist?

In this 90-minute, information-packed course, renowned pediatric dentist, Dr. Roger Sanger, DDS, MS, and Dr. Steve Yun, MD, an anesthesiologist, and pediatric specialist, will provide the framework to answer this question.

You will learn about minimal/moderate pediatric oral sedation protocols that dentists may administer in-office, as well as how to determine when to introduce deep sedation – or general anesthesia – with a qualified, permitted anesthesiologist.

They’ll look closely at drug selection, case selection, parental selection and communication, staff training, office equipment and preparedness, and legal considerations.

Learning Objectives:

  • The best pediatric protocols to ensure safety and efficacy
  • Why the safest oral sedation protocols are non-opioid, no-memory when combined with N2O
  • Medical issues that may require an anesthesiologist
  • The fallacy of asking for medical clearance
  • Legal considerations when bringing in a specialist

This is an invaluable course for anyone who treats pediatric dental patients.
