Offering dental sedation at your practice is an excellent way to build your patient base and grow your dental business. Our dental sedationists are approved mentors, awarded by STAC at the Royal College of Surgeons.
At Dental Sedation Solutions, we can provide mentoring packages for training in inhalation sedation and IV sedation. Once you have completed your theory training on an accredited sedation course you can contact us to supervise you through your 10/20 mentored cases. We can visit your practice and supervise both the Dentist and Nurse in the sedation process - we can also provide a Sedation Nurse for 1-1 support.
The IASCD guidelines version 1.1 (2020) advise that all sedation practitioners, dentists or nurses who have undergone didactic learning must carry out 10 IHS / 20 IV cases under the supervision of an experienced and approved mentor.
The Royal College of Surgeons has set up a mentor approval process which can be found here.
We have work-based assessments set up to ensure that all aspects of the syllabus are covered before signing off the mentee. We will continue to guide you, and provide advice and support as you transition to become an independent sedation provider.
