So You Want to Be a New York Sedation Dentist?

Sep 14, 2008
Feeling pain is one thing that almost all people would not want to experience. Just like any other fear, it is something that people would always like to avoid or completely get rid of. Now something that is often associated with pain is a trip to the dentist. Having your teeth drilled, excavated, or pulled out is not exactly the best feeling in the world, far from it to be exact. That is why people frequently put off regular visits to the dentist or completely cancel appointments even if a dental procedure is much needed. Some even let a good number of years pass by before convincing themselves to pay their dentist a visit. Numerous measures and treatments have been created and developed over years to help people avoid this unpleasant and unwanted feeling. And fortunately, in the field of dentistry, oral sedations were introduced to lessen the anxiety and discomfort during trips to the dentist. But this practice can't just be carried out right away; the dentist must have the right knowledge and training before they can get the license and permit to administer oral sedations to their patients. For A New York sedation dentist, a number of requirements must be first met before he is allowed to perform the said procedure.

Of course, the first requirement is that you would have to be a licensed dentist of the New York State. You should also be registered and should currently be in practice of the profession. In addition, further education and training would be required. For those wanting to practice Dental General Anesthesia (includes general anesthesia, deep sedation or conscious sedation), additional education means completing a post-doctoral course in anesthesia of at least two years or an oral and maxillofacial surgery graduate program. Each should be recognized by an acceptable accrediting body. A complete course in Advanced Cardiac Life Support would also be needed as fulfillment to be a New York sedation dentist.

For those who are interested in practicing Dental Parenteral Conscious Sedation or sedation limited to the parenteral or enteral course that can include the use of inhalation agents, a post-doctoral education is also required. This would have to be recognized by the Department or, again, by an acceptable accrediting body. A training of 60 hours and additional experience of successful administration of parenteral conscious sedation to no less than 20 patients in the clinic would also be necessary. And just like in Dental General Anesthesia, a complete course in Advanced Cardiac Life Support would be also mandatory.

On the other hand, for a New York sedation dentist to get a certificate for Dental Enteral Conscious Sedation (sedation done in the enteral course that can include the use of inhalation agents), a completion of either of the following is needed: A recognized pre-doctoral or post-doctoral degree by an acceptable accrediting body that consists of a specialty program or residency OR a post-doctoral coursework recognized by the Department or equal to one that is approved by an acceptable accrediting body. Either coursework should include Basic Life Support education and extra 18 hours of emergency management training among other things.
