Physicians often question why pediatric dentistry does not follow a medical model. Instead of using nitrous only with multiple visits, why not provide a single visit with nitrous PLUS a safe, no memory, non-opioid drug protocol on manageable children? This not only eliminates fear in children, it also reduces parental health care concerns of multiple office visits with the threat of infectious disease transmission.
In this online course by Roger Sanger, DDS, DOCS Education's lead Pediatric Sedation Dentistry instructor, will cover the following points.
- Learn case selection for children needing multiple quadrants of care that can be safely treated in one visit with a safe no memory, non-opioid protocol supplemented with nitrous oxide.
- Discover how you can eliminate repetitive visits with sedation dentistry when patient management is an issue.
- Learn to use preemptive OTC analgesics and local anesthesia buffering to make one-visit sedation more comfortable for the child and time saving for the doctor and staff.
- Discuss why this one-visit pediatric dentistry technique will allow you to be profitable and efficient, even if you accept Medicaid or low-fee PPO plans.
