Individuals suffering from chronic medical and psychological problems are one of the fastest-growing segments of your patient population. Advanced sedation dentistry is the safest and least stressful way for them to receive care. This masters-level sedation training program will provide advanced clinical training for general dentists in the pharmacology, physiology, psychology, and clinical techniques necessary to safely treat ASA III+ patients with asthma, diabetes, bleeding disorders, and more.

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.

Learn Critical Facts on Next-Generation Medications:

  • New anticoagulants beyond Coumadin
  • New antiplatelets beyond Plavix
  • New bisphosphonate/osteonecrosis of the jaw guidelines
  • New metformin guidelines for type 2 diabetes
  • Learn A Dental Response to COVID

Testimonial

 

"I brought some of the team with me, including two hygienists and our assistant manager—all of whom are extremely reluctant to try new things. I sat at lunch today listening with amazement as they told me what we need to do to implement this in our practice! Your enthusiasm is infectious, and I will be sending the rest of the team to this course!"
