Course Information 

Continuing Dental Education at the University of Alberta, is pleased to announce our upcoming IV Conscious Sedation Program for Dentists (Integrated Single and Two-Drug Curriculum). Nitrous Oxide and Oral Sedation (Session 1), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Emergency Airway Management are seamlessly integrated into the program. 

The program will be a combination of online eClass learning, and in-person clinical components, will encompass extensive lecture, lab, and clinic sessions, and boasts one of the strongest student instructor ratios available. With our existing Dental Faculty, and in our partnership with the Faculty of Medicine, and Alberta Health Services we are able to access a wide range of experienced instructors, resources, and expertise to combine with our strong dental team in providing exceptional programming. 

The IV Conscious Sedation program is competency based and will have proficiency requirements. As a recognized, academic certification program, each participant will complete a minimum of 21 IV starts. All equipment (other than the precordial stethoscope as noted below), supplies, instrumentation, and pre-screened patients are provided for you. 

Clinical experience requirements for various provincial or state bodies vary, and some are currently under review. We will be happy to work with you to evaluate that those requirements can be met, or advise you on other programs that may be more suitable. Auxiliary team member training is also a requirement and a part of this program. 

Equipment Requirement for Clinic (ONLY during Session 3): During Session 3 (clinical session) participants will be required to bring with them their own Precordial Stethoscope, which is now a requirement for IV Conscious Sedation procedures per ADA&C regulations (supplier information can be provided if required), as well as a paired small Bluetooth speaker for monitoring the audio. No other equipment or supplies are required to be brought with you at this time, however should this change due to new regulations or restrictions, participants will be notified immediately.
