Intravenous Sedation Training

As clinicians develop in their implant practice, many realize that patient comfort (and case acceptance!) can increase with moderate sedation. This is a safe and effective way to relax patients and to offer treatment to the thousands of people who avoid dental care due to anxiety. Not only will course delegates use sedation for implant cases, but also for general dentistry and large restorative treatment plans in your practice. To facilitate the learning experience and limit time out of your office, the IV sedation training can be paired with CIRP as an educational package.

The IV sedation program consists of 60 hours (a general state requirement) of didactic training, followed by at least 20 sedation experiences. Unlike some training sites where delegates "share" a sedation patient, we expect our delegates to perform 20 individual sedations. Also, we use only medications which are available to general dentists to use. Why train in deep sedation if you will be practicing moderate sedation? Finally, it is important that you learn to do the dentistry while sedating your patients. This is also part of the clinical experience we offer.



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.

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 test sedation that will document clinical competency in patient evaluation and sedation management.

Emergency Management: this is a formal clinical assessment of 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.
