Embrace the treatment of Medically-Complex Patients with Confidence
DOCS Education presents a new, case-based approach to advanced sedation training that will enhance your skills and elevate your practice. Dr. Fang, a respected Harvard Medical School professor, teaches the implications of next-generation medications and their influence on sedation dentistry appointments. Highly focused training will reveal a new methodology specially designed to present patient scenarios with specific conditions, and a thorough understanding of pharmacology to help you decide to treat versus refer.
This new curriculum will take doctors through a series of multifarious sedation cases from beginning to end, including surprise emergencies that may arise and how to manage them — a profound confidence builder. Stay up to date with new guidelines on hypertension, joint replacement pre-medication, and diabetes.
Don't forget the dentistry! Dr. Tony Feck, DOCS Education Dean of Faculty, discusses the ins and outs of the actual practice of dentistry on medically complex patients, which is often neglected by other CE providers. Learn how patients with different conditions react to analgesics, benzodiazepines, the stress of a long appointment and more.
You don't have to turn away medically-complex patients. With the Master Sedation Series, you can safely and confidently care for these patients in your practice.
