If you are a dentist who would like to get certified for minimal sedation, you are in the right place! Minimal sedation is a great tool to have when working with patients who have a lot of dental anxiety. By calming the nerves and fears of your patients, it makes the experience much more pleasant for not only them but for you and your staff.

If you have worked with patients that suffer from extreme dental anxiety, then you would know that it can sometimes take a toll on you and your staff, as well. Did you know that staff members who meet with anxious patients can often take on those feelings? Many staff members have reported feeling stress and anxiety throughout the entirety of the patient’s appointment and sometimes after. This can make it difficult to focus on what you are doing and to do a good job.

Another way that dental anxiety can affect dentists is by preventing patients from coming to their regular appointments. When they avoid their cleanings and maintenance appointments, it oftentimes just creates more problems and more work for you to do when they do finally come in. This also doesn’t help their fear or anxiety. 

Though there are quite a few options to help your patients feel more comfortable in your chair, a lot of times they need something prescribed to help them stay calm. This is where a dental sedation certification will come in handy. 

What is a dental sedation certification?

If you are not familiar with minimal sedation dentistry, it is a way to help your patients feel calm when coming to the dentist. You will be able to provide them with an anxiolytic to take before they come for their appointment. This will relieve stress and anxiety without hindering them too much. They will still be able to drive to and from the appointment and will be fully awake to interact with you and your staff. This is a safe and mild option for those who just need a little help relaxing. 

How to get certified

Each state has its own set of ADA guidelines and state specific regulations, start by researching to see what type of certification you will need. At Midwest Sedation Consultants, we offer online courses and recertifications to dentists in Nebraska, Kansas, Oregon, North Carolina, North Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia. 

Our courses are simple and allow you to take them online from the comfort of your home or office. We have provided over 300 certifications and over 1200 courses have been completed through Midwest Sedation Consultants. If you have questions, reach out to us today! 

You should also check your dental sedation certification and be sure that you don’t need to be recertified. Again, you must follow the ADA guidelines in order to ensure you can safely provide medication for those who need it.
