This course serves as an update and review of requirements for the purpose of administering moderate oral sedation and/or IV sedation to pediatric patients. The Louisiana State Board of Dentistry requires that dentists with a permit to administer moderate sedation to pediatric patients attend a live, in-person review course once every four years. For dentists licensed in other states, call your state board office to confirm whether this course satisfies their continuing education requirements.
