Is it that time again to get your oral sedation recertification? Then, you need to start your search for an oral sedation recertification educator. 

Make your search short and easy by choosing Midwest Sedation Consultants. We provide oral sedation recertification courses that meet the requirements of eight states.

Why should you choose Midwest Sedation Consultants over other educators? Our oral sedation recertification team wants to share some reasons to choose us.

What is oral sedation? 

Oral sedation, also known as minimal sedation or anxiolysis, is an oral sedative that relaxes a patient. This kind of sedation does not impair ventilation on cardiovascular functions. It does, however, impair cognitive function and coordination. 

Dentists normally use oral sedation to relax patients with dental anxiety. It helps them feel more comfortable during regular cleanings or dental treatments like crowns or fillings. Some other reasons dentists use oral sedation to serve older adults better or do multiple dental procedures at once.

How do you get an oral sedation certification? 

The American Dental Association states that for dentists to administer oral sedation, they are required to demonstrate they have completed approved training and maintained current certification. These courses help them stay up-to-date with the latest and safest ways to administer oral sedation. This course must be completed by an approved organization - like Midwest Sedation Consultants.

At Midwest Sedation Consultants, our sedation coursework is approved by an individual's state Boards of Dentistry to fulfill the minimal sedation education in adult patients (13 years or older).
