Dentists: Types of Sedation Permits

Nevada requires training for moderate sedation. The ADMA offers courses that satisfy these requirements.

To administer minimal sedation to patients, the American Dental Association Guidelines indicate a minimum of 16 hours of training plus clinically-oriented experiences. The ADMA offers training that exceeds these requirements.

To obtain a moderate sedation permit, Nevada requires a minimum of 60 hours dedicated exclusively to the administration of moderate sedation, and the successful administration as the operator of moderate sedation to not less than 20 patients. Although our training meets the Nevada requirements, we have placed a moratorium on Nevada moderate sedation registrations until we have a guarantee that graduates will achieve their permit.

Dentists: CE Requirements to Maintain your Permit

Per Nevada rules NAC 631.2256 all dentists holding a sedation permit must complete 6 hours of continuing education every 2 years. This can be completed via a 1-day ADMA CE course.
