Next Vancouver Course Starts September 18, 2020
Covid-19 Update: The course is being held following provincial guidelines for the use of masks and social distancing. The class size will be kept small and social distancing with only a single student at each table will be undertaken. We are excited to be still holding our 2020 fall course.
Get ready to transform your whole outlook on dentistry. Get ready to change the way you and your team handle your most challenging patients. Difficult surgeries, long surgeries, phobic patients, special needs patients – they can all now be given a comfortable dental experience with a precision level of sedation titrated to their specific response.
No longer have the hit or miss issues of giving oral sedation to your patients then seeing them leave less than impressed. IV sedation is actually safer than oral sedation because you have the ability to titrate the dosage in real time until you reach the exact level of sedation you are aiming for. Shorter startups and a quicker recoveries mean increased practice efficiency. Need to maintain a sterile surgical field for implant surgery? Not an issue. No taking gloves on and off as you give IV doses of sedatives if you learn to use an IV syringe pump. We will teach you.
Worried about IV sedation being dangerous? This concern stops some dentists from taking a parenteral sedation course. The fact is it is very easy to safely sedate patients intravenously in a dental practice. The faculty of Dental Ed have cumulatively sedated over 45,000 patients without a single patient being harmed. How? Simple with:
- good training
- proper patient screening
- best practice patient monitoring
- following easy and well established rules for safe anaesthesia
This course is taught to the same standards that guide the delivery of sedation by medical anaesthesiologists in Canada. We exceed the requirements of all Canadian dental colleges including using end-tidal-CO2 (ETCO2) monitoring within our moderate conscious sedation training program. ETCO2 monitoring is the golden standard for monitoring patient respiration’s during sedation delivery.
Join our multidisciplinary faculty for the best moderate sedation training program available anywhere. We can give you the knowledge and skills to confidently and safely provide all forms of minimal and moderate sedation to your patients. Providing IV sedation will elevate your dental practice in a highly competitive market.
Both high fidelity and low fidelity simulations are part of the program. Certification in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) is included as part of the course. ACLS is made easy by our team and we guarantee success in this part of the program.
Our training in the skill of starting IVs is a point of pride. You will be taught by faculty with extensive IV experience and we guarantee that you will master the “IV start”. Countless dentists to date have done just that. We will even teach you how to start the most difficult IVs using ultrasound guided vascular access techniques.
Come join us in Vancouver, BC Canada and take our September 2020 moderate sedation certification course.
