DOCS Education is proud to introduce the ALL-New Master Series Courses for advanced clinical training.

Learn about the course from instructor Dr. Leslie Fang himself by listening here:

Individuals suffering from chronic medical problems are one of the fastest-growing segments of your patient population. These patients benefit from sedation dentistry, as it is the safest and least stressful way to receive care. Participate in the Master Series – Advanced Sedation presented by world-renowned doctors Tony Feck and Leslie Fang, and learn to safely manage sedation appointments of ASA III+ patients with asthma, diabetes, bleeding disorders, and more in this two-day intensive program.

Embrace the treatment of Medically-Complex Patients with Confidence

DOCS Education presents a new, case-based approach to advanced sedation training. Dr. Leslie Fang, respected Harvard Medical School professor, teaches the implications of next-generation medications and their influence on sedation appointments. Highly focused training will reveal a new methodology specially designed to present patient scenarios with specific conditions, and a thorough understanding of pharmacology to help you decide to treat vs. refer.

This new curriculum will take doctors through a series of multifarious sedation cases from beginning to end, including surprise emergencies that may arise and how to manage them — a profound confidence builder. Stay up-to-date with new guidelines on hypertension, joint replacement pre-medication, and diabetes.

Don't forget the dentistry! Dr. Tony Feck, DOCS Education Dean of Faculty, discusses the ins and outs of the actual practice of dentistry on medically-complex patients, often neglected by other CE providers. Learn how patients with different conditions react to analgesics, benzodiazepines, the stress of a long appointment and more!

Learn critical facts on next-generation medications:

  • New anticoagulants beyond Coumadin
  • New antiplatelets beyond Plavix
  • New bisphosphonate/osteonecrosis of the jaw guidelines
  • New metformin guidelines for type 2 diabetes
  • And much, much more

Day Two of this course features action-packed breakout sessions for emergency training on high-fidelity patient simulators for dentists. Presented by Jim Bovia and his team, who combined have trained over 200,000 healthcare providers in emergency care.

You don't have to turn away medically-complex patients. With the Master Sedation Series, you can safely and confidently care for these patients in your practice.

  • Why should I bring my team?

    "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.
