3 Day (30 credits) ADMA IV Sedation Certification for Assistants & Hygienists. Composed of lecture and hands-on topics, this course builds a confident assistant that can safely work with IV sedation dentists.
It is imperative that dentists develop a strong team to practice sedation dentistry safely and effectively. Having dental assistants attend this course provides the foundation to do just that. Attendees will return to work with a comprehensive understanding of:
- How anatomy, physiology and pharmacology impact patients when under sedation
- Airway management algorithms and the techniques and equipment required to apply them
- How to monitor sedated patients and communicate their status to the sedating dentist
This is all brought together when the assistants work as a team through hands-on clinical cases in the course. The three day course satisfies all state certification requirements for dental assistants & hygienists.
