Ohio Dental Sedation Information


THIS PAGE IS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR DENTISTS INTENDING TO PRACTICE SEDATION IN THE STATE OF OHIO. BELOW, YOU WILL FIND:

Types of Sedation Permits

Ohio requires training for conscious sedation. The ADMA offers courses that satisfy these requirements.

To administer minimal sedation to patients 13 years of age or older, 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, Ohio requires no fewer than 60 hours of didactic instruction plus administration of moderate sedation for at least twenty individually managed dental patients. Although our training meets the Ohio requirements, we have placed a moratorium on Ohio moderate sedation registrations until we have a guarantee that graduates will achieve their permit.

CE Requirements to Maintain your Permit

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

Adult Moderate Sedation CE Courses

Pediatric Moderate Sedation CE Courses.
