Americas Society for Advancement in Anesthesia Dentistry

"Parenteral Conscious Sedation" is a twelve day comprehensive course in all modalities of anesthesia and includes Advanced Cardiac Life Support Training and clinical cases.

The Program Outline

"Preanesthesia Evaluation-Advantages of Sedation in the Dental Practice""Autonomic Nervous System, Principles of General Anesthesia & Sedative Hypnotic Drugs""General Principles of Pharmacology and Pharmacology of Sedation Drugs""How to Use Oral Sedation""Nitrous Oxide Complications & Contraindications of Nitrous Oxide & Sedation Drugs""Pediatric Premedication and Sedation""Medical Emergencies - Prevention, Recognition, & Management""Monitoring and Recordkeeping""Clinical Practice" (Management of 20 Patients)"Advanced Cardiac Life Support Certification" (American Heart Association)

     The curriculum has been prepared to conform to the "Guidelines for Teaching the Comprehensive Control of Pain and Anxiety in Dentistry" Part 3 of The ADA Council on Education (1992). It complies with the "Practice Guidelines for Sedation" by The American Society of Anesthesiology, the "Parameters of Care" for Conscious Sedation by AAOMS, and the "Guidelines for PCS" by The American Society of Anesthesiology.

     The tuition for the course is $7000.00. A deposit of $1000.00 is required to reserve a place in the class. Limited attendance of 10 full time students is due to our "one on one" teaching approach in both the Oral Surgery Suites and the Operating Rooms. Due to limitations in class size, we recommend early enrollment.

     We will provide a detailed schedule, travel, and lodging information after your registration is completed.

     We look forward to your participation in this learning experience.
