  • Why should I bring my team? Do they need to be certified to offer IV sedation dentistry?

    "I brought some of the team with me, including two hygienists and our assistant manager—all of whom are extremely reluctant to try new things. I sat at lunch today listening with amazement as they told me what we need to do to implement this in our practice! Your enthusiasm is infectious, and I will be sending the rest of the team to this course!" - Karen Harriman, DDS DOCS Education considers the dental team a vital part of good patient care and urges every dentist to bring at least one staff member to courses. States differ in their sedation regulations. Visit www.SedationRegulations.com to learn more. In most dental offices team members play an essential role. It's imperative that they be knowledgeable about the process to better serve the patient and the dentist.
