Course Information
While no one ever expects an emergency situation to arise, attending this course will help you and your team be more prepared should the unexpected happen. This course is designed to simulate emergencies that may occur in a pediatric dental office. It will offer some didactic materials but will focus on team-driven assessment and responsiveness to situations that might arise during sedation of children for operative care. The course is intended for pediatric dentists who are currently using sedation techniques in their office and will allow for the participant to make quick assessments of patient status and simulate airway techniques, while managing real-time trending of physiological status with the goal of stabilizing the patient. You will be able to immediately implement training protocols for your practice that you’ve learned in the course.

This course features recognized leaders in the field, both in dental anesthesia as well as pediatric dentistry. You’ll find didactic lectures, case studies, film clip sessions, and panel discussions with personalized attention. There will be dedicated forums to ask questions and talk about specific issues with course faculty, discuss techniques for effective communication with the patient and parent to address unusually challenging and complex situations.
