NEWS: DOCS Education has created an Interactive (((Live))) Streaming program for Master Series: Advanced Sedation to take place on Oct 2, 2021. Gain knowledge and confidence to safely sedate medically complex patients from the safety and comfort of your home.



Individuals suffering from chronic medical problems are one of the fastest-growing segments of your patient population. These patients benefit from sedation dentistry, as it is the safest and least stressful way to receive care. Participate in the Master Series – Advanced Sedation presented by world-renowned doctors Tony Feck and Leslie Fang, and learn to safely manage sedation appointments of ASA III+ patients with asthma, diabetes, bleeding disorders, and more in this two-day (16 CE) intensive program.

Embrace the treatment of Medically-Complex Patients with Confidence

DOCS Education presents a new, case-based approach to advanced sedation training. Dr. Leslie Fang, a respected Harvard Medical School professor, teaches the implications of next-generation medications and their influence on sedation 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 vs. 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, often neglected by other CE providers. Learn how patients with different conditions react to analgesics, benzodiazepines, the stress of a long appointment and more!

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

Scientific support and additional resources are available here.

"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!"
