Title: Essentials of sedation for dentistry

Course Description
This seminar will offer a review of practical, safe, and commonly used in office “sedation” modalities by most practitioners. What do we need to know to be as safe as possible?

Both pediatric and adult patient issues will be discussed.

  • What are the critical areas to focus on for a proper patient assessment?
  • Explain the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the most commonly used anxiolytic drugs in dental practice.
  • Demonstrate how to do an airway assessment, and explain the implications for the sedated patient
  • List the monitors required or recommended for sedation and explain how their data is important.
  • What are some common reported mishaps that lead to morbidity? How are they avoided and/or treated?

Speaker: Dr. Hagen Klieb
