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.VIEW COURSE DETAILS

PATIENT SURGICAL EXPERIENCES:
Yes, we operate at every session, with a demo surgery during 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 a tremendous effort to provide delegates at 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.
