Our Pediatric Oral Sedation CE course for Assistants produces team members that can help their dentist in three major categories:


The assistants will learn to:

  • Take pre screening pediatric vital signs
  • Pre screen pediatric medical problems
  • Pre screen pediatric difficult airways
  • Educate parents / caregivers on the risks of a full stomach during sedation


The assistants will learn to:

  • Hook up a pediatric vital signs monitor
    • Blood Pressure
    • Heart Rate
    • Respiratory Rate
    • Rythym Stripe
    • Pulse Oximetry
    • Capnography
  • Actively interpret a pediatric vital signs monitor
  • Use and fill out a pediatric sedation flow sheet
  • Audit pediatric sedation consent forms
  • Recognize, Respond, Perform, and Communicate in any pediatric sedation emergency


The assistants will learn to:

  • Evaluate when the pediatric patient can have the monitors removed
  • Evaluate when the pediatric patient can be safely discharged
  • Use and fill out pediatric sedation discharge instructions

Assistants also develop a solid understanding in pediatric sedation pharmacology, physiology, and anatomy.  Trained assistants become proficient in aiding the dentist during pediatric emergencies in a dental office.  The ADMA develops a team member that the dentist can rely upon as not only an emergency assistant but an emergency resource.  Pediatric case simulation, individual instructor interaction, and hands on exposure develops an assistant that can both lead and be a team member.  *Select “learn more” from any of the above courses for an in depth content and training description.
