NEWS: DOCS Education has created an Interactive (((Live))) Streaming program for Safe & Effective Pediatric Sedation Dentistry to take place on February 19, 2021. Learn how to integrate "one visit" protocols into your practice from the safety and comfort of your home.

Learning Safe & Effective Pediatric Sedation Dentistry allows you to minimize the number of appointments needed to treat children with multiple caries AND make the dental experience pain-and-anxiety-free for the child. 

DOCS Education's world-class dental faculty will provide you and your team with superior Pediatric Sedation Dentistry training through the innovative DOCS Education Interactive (((Live))) Streaming Program.

You will earn a total of 16 CE hours.

Please Note: This is NOT a permit-qualifying course. You must already have a permit or experience treating children with sedation to get the most out of it.

The Game Changer in Pediatric Dentistry

Change the way you treat pediatric patients using minimal conscious sedation with an orally administered sedative and amnesic (no memory) drug with N2O analgesia.

Transform multiple pediatric appointments and difficult cases into a single "no memory" appointment.

What makes this Interactive (((Live))) Streaming course better than other pediatric sedation courses?

  1. Some courses give you a shopping list of drug options. Safe & Effective Pediatric Sedation Dentistry teaches you two protocols that have been proven to be one of the safest and most effective in dentistry.
  2. The course is taught by renowned practicing pediatric dentists and physicians: Roger Sanger, DDS, MS (pediatric dentist), and Leslie Fang, MD, Ph.D. (internist and nephrologist).
  3. Instruction is focused on clinically relevant information that you can put to use immediately in your practice.
  4. Real-time questions, live polls, and interaction with instructors make the experience high-touch.




Upon completion of this competency course in minimal sedation, the dentist will: 

  • Learn the single best protocol, step by step, for safe pediatric sedation—a virtual, no memory appointment.
  • Discover, using real case studies, how to correctly diagnose and create a treatment plan using caries risk management in children.
  • Identify the pharmacological effects of sedation drugs and understand the sedation/general anesthesia continuum.
  • Understand the importance of monitoring pediatric patients within the standard of care doctrine.


Include Your Team!

Successful implementation of new skills depends not just on an intelligent doctor—but an intelligent team. Provide your team with the confidence, skills, and preparation to ensure pediatric sedation is implemented safely and efficiently in your practice.

What You'll Learn

In this 1-day (((live))) streaming course with an online pre-course, you will develop a skill set that will allow you to safely and confidently use oral sedation on pediatric patients. Clinically tested over 30 years, these “no memory, no opioid” protocols have unprecedented safety, outstanding results, and no unnecessary complexity.

You will engage in the study of the continuum of pediatric sedation dentistry: from case selection to the science of sedation to safety to implementation.

The course divided into the following components: 50% (((LIVE))) streaming lectures, 45% online video content to be viewed prior to the live course start dates, and 5% office hours with DOCS Faculty to review pre-course material.
