Moderate Sedation Review Course (Pediatric Patients Only)
Take this course to renew your personal permit or as a refresher course for dentists and dental team members.
Next Upcoming Session:
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.

- The role of moderate sedation in the treatment of pediatric dental patients
- Basic behavior management of the pediatric dental patient
- Pediatric anatomy and physiology, assessment of pediatric dental patients and monitoring of vital signs
- Medications used in pediatric sedation and emergency management
- Sedation for the medically, physically or mentally compromised patient
- Management of the pediatric airway
- Management of medical and sedation emergencies that can occur in the pediatric dental office
- The role of local anesthesia in pediatric moderate sedation
- The role of nitrous oxide in pediatric moderate sedation
- Pain control for the pediatric dental patient
