Pharmacology, physiology, airway management, and patient screening are heavily emphasized in the core curriculum. In addition to interactive didactics, simulated case scenarios develop a safe, knowledgeable, and confident client. Our training manual is derived from the University of Washington School of Medicine Anesthesia training program. We have designed a unique training model that ensures a low client to instructor ratio and is comprised of interactive didactics and simulated case scenarios. Our clients receive the highest quality of sedation training offered in the industry.  Our training approach ensures the development of a safer, more knowledgeable, and more confident sedation dentist.

Each state dental board has unique credentialing methods for dentists.  In general, a state falls into one of three categories:

60 hour course

CO [moderate], DE, FL, HI, MI, NV, OH, SD, VT, VA, and WY
60 Hour Training Course:  These states have mandated that Oral Conscious Sedation Training needs to be essentially an equivalent training program to that of an IV Sedation Training Course (Colorado [moderate], Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, South Dakota, Vermont, Virginia, and Wyoming). These courses can be completed in one two two training modules.  They require 60 hours of didactics and 20 clinical cases.  A dentist can come to the ADMA's training facility in Dayton, OH and complete the course in one module.  The dentist can also break the training into two modules.  With this option the dentist needs to complete Module I (Any 30 hour oral sedation course with the ADMA) and Module II.  Module II includes 30 hours of didactics and 20 clinical cases.  Module II takes place in Dayton, OH at the ADMA's training facility and can be scheduled at a convenient time for any dentist.

DBE Course

AL, AZ, AR, CO [Minimal], ID, LA, MT, MN, MS, NE, NH, NM, NY, ND, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, UT, WA, and WV
Dental Board Evaluation of Sedation Application:  The Dental Board Evaluates each dentist and the training program on a case by case basis.  The state will require an ADA CERP, AGD PACE, or a University Based program.  The ADMA training programs are at the highest level of credentialing.  The ADMA training programs are officially approved by Kettering Health Residency and University Affiliated.

Pre Qualified Course

AK, CA, GA, KS, KY, MO, NC, NJ, NE, and WI
Pre-Qualified Oral Sedation Training Program:  The state dental board has reviewed the ADMA Oral Conscious Sedation Curriculum and approved the ADMA as a training provider for an Oral Sedation Permit.  Some of these states divide Oral Conscious Sedation into Minimal Oral Sedation and Moderate Oral Conscious Sedation.  When the state divides Oral Conscious sedation into two categories, the dentist must complete the ADMA Minimal Oral Sedation Course (or a course equivalent) before they take the Moderate Oral Conscious Sedation Course.
