Course Dates

A Competency Course in Moderate
Parenteral Sedation

Safely and effectively treat patients who would otherwise not seek or receive dental care. This includes fearful patients, patients with special needs, and patients who simply desire sedation as part of complex treatment. While many specialists in a given community offer sedation, they are typically not qualified or comfortable providing extensive restorative work, such as multiple operative restorations or crown preparations. For this reason, and to increase overall access to care, it is necessary to train general dentists in the appropriate use of parenteral sedation.

Course Objectives

The successful candidate will, after completing this training, meet the following objectives:

  • List and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of moderate sedation.

  • Discuss the prevention, recognition and management of complications associated with moderate sedation. 

  • Administer moderate sedation to patients in a clinical setting in a safe and effective manner. 

  • Discuss the abuse potential, occupational hazards and other untoward effects of the agents utilized to achieve moderate sedation.

  • Describe and demonstrate the technique of intravenous access, intramuscular injection and other sedation techniques.

  • Discuss the pharmacology of the drug(s) selected for administration.

  • Discuss the precautions, indications, contraindications and adverse reactions associated with the drug(s) selected.

  • Administer the selected drug(s) to dental patients in a clinical setting in a safe and effective manner.

  • List the complications associated with techniques of moderate sedation.

  • Describe a protocol for management of emergencies in the dental office and list and discuss the emergency drugs and equipment required for the prevention and management of emergency situations.

  • Demonstrate the management of various medical emergencies in live-action drills.

  • Effectively evaluate patients and asses their suitability for moderate sedation; perform a satisfactory history and physical with review of systems.

  • Know principles of advanced cardiac life support and associated emergency equipment.

  • Pass a written examination documenting successful retention of facts and information necessary for performing moderate sedation.


State Board Approval

This course conforms to ADA guidelines for Moderate Parenteral Sedation. However, in most states, individual courses must be approved by the state dental board. It is incumbent upon each individual to send this syllabus to your state board to verify that this course meets individual state requirements. Anyone is welcome obviously to take this course solely as a CE opportunity, but most clinicians will want to implement these techniques into their private practice, so contact your state agency to confirm acceptance of these credentials.


Course delegates will be assessed to determine competency in the area of moderate parenteral sedation.

Assessments will include:

  • Written quizzes on lecture modules (online, and in class)

  • Final examination on didactic information (in class)

  • Test Sedation:

     this is a formal clinical assessment of a test sedation that will document clinical competency in patient evaluation and sedation management

  • Emergency Management:

     this is a formal clinical assessment of a test sedation that will document clinical competency in patient evaluation and sedation management

     this is a formal clinical assessment that will evaluate the course delegate during a simulated medical emergency

  • All assessments are graded pass/fail. Delegates must pass all 4 assessment areas to receive a passing grade in the course.

Patient Surgical Experiences

Yes, we operate at every session, with a demo surgery the first session, and up to 20 delegate surgeries at other sessions.

We recruit and provide patients for these sessions, or delegates may bring their own patients. We cannot guarantee this service for every person in every session because many factors are out of our control. However, we have back-up patients and make tremendous effort to provide delegates a surgery each time. We have been very successful at this to date. We provide the patients. We mentor your surgical experience. You learn and excel.
