Course Description:

Even the best seminar presentation can't replicate the value of training in an actual clinical setting. That's why we offer a premium experience for dentists wishing to put their knowledge into practice. The Personal Learning Experience (PLE) places dentists and staff members within a pediatric dental clinic. This real-world setting provides the best possible look at how sedation can be provided safely and efficiently to a wide number of patients every single day. Participants gain vital access to successful clinical techniques and established practice management approaches.

Mississippi requires 10 live patient cases for pediatric moderate enteral sedation.

PLE experience

Observe Pediatric Sedation Dentistry in Action

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is a personal experience worth? Come observe pediatric sedation dentistry firsthand, and learn how to transform your practice.

When you sign up for this 1- or 2-day personalized learning experience, you'll experience several benefits, including:

  • Real-life lessons – You'll observe a minimum of 10 cases that include pediatric sedation dentistry
  • Expert instruction – Our highly experienced faculty will walk you through actual procedures
  • Personal attention – In this small clinical setting, you and your team will be sure to get your questions answered
  • Reinforce your knowledge – Build on what you've already learned in the 3-day Pediatric Sedation Dentistry course

Get a Front Row Seat

Classroom instruction is invaluable, but there's nothing like real-life training to help you take your skills to the next level. The PSD PLE gives doctors and their team a front-row seat to observe the clinical techniques and practice management policies used in a successful pediatric sedation dentistry clinic.

DOCS Education offers the 1- or 2-day PSD PLE to any graduate of our 3-day Pediatric Sedation Dentistry course or to any dentist with a valid sedation dentistry permit.
