Sedation & General Anesthesia Updates
for the Pediatric Dental Office Group

Presenter: Douglass L. Jackson, DMD, MS, PhD - Dentist/Anesthesiologist/Educator
Course Description: When behavioral management strategies fall short of optimizing the treatment conditions needed for delivering dental care to pediatric and special needs patients, it may be necessary to consider whether sedation or general anesthesia is indicated. Among the topics to be discussed are patient selection, a general overview of pharmacology and behavioral effects of sedatives commonly used by pediatric dentists and office preparedness for the safe delivery of sedation. Because general anesthesia is often required for the safe and effective delivery of dental care to some populations of dental patients, the utilization of office-based general anesthesia services will also be discussed.
