Learn to care for anxious and fearful patients using oral sedatives. This gateway course is one of our most popular; it provides the necessary training to administer sedation to healthy adults. Sessions are taught by renowned faculty
who are also practicing doctors — a Harvard Medical School professor and distinguished practicing dentists — and cover everything you need to know to integrate sedation into your practice. Class format consists of informative and engaging lectures and discussion.

Learn the fundamentals of providing safe and comfortable dental care to adult patients using nitrous oxide with a single-dose sedative. Using single-dose sedation in conjunction with N2O offers greater benefits to anxious patients than using either one separately. In this 2-day course, DOCS Education will show you how to combine these two time-tested methods to better serve your patients.
