Pediatric Sedation Dentistry Personalized Learning Experience
Even the best seminar presentation can't replicate the value of training received in an actual clinical setting. That's why we offer a premium experience for dentists wishing to put their knowledge into practice at the fastest possible rate. The Personal Learning Experience (PLE) places dentists and staff members within a pediatric dental office. This real-world setting provides the best possible look at how sedation can be provided safely and efficiently to a wide number of patients every single day. Participants gain vital access to successful clinical techniques and established practice management approaches. Louisiana and Mississippi require 10 live patient cases for pediatric moderate enteral sedation.
