Dental Sedation course

Dental Sedation Course NEBDN

Looking to advance your career in Dental Nursing? Our post-registration NEBDN Dental Sedation course (equivalent to Level 4) is meticulously crafted to elevate your professional expertise. At London Waterloo Academy, we prioritise providing our students with an outstanding learning experience and ensuring they pass their examinations stress-free.

Conscious Sedation is a pivotal component of modern dentistry, offering essential care for patients grappling with anxieties and phobias. Administered orally, through inhalation, or via injection in the UK, these sedative drugs alleviate anxiety but can also present significant side effects. We equip our students to adeptly recognise and manage these effects in a calm and effective manner.

Dental sedation is invaluable for treating highly anxious patients or performing complex procedures. It induces relaxation and a sleep-like state while allowing patients to respond to prompts. There are two types commonly offered in practice:
Intravenous (IV) Sedation and Inhalation Sedation. While inhalation sedation is common with children, IV sedation is preferred for adults. Notably, pregnant women cannot undergo inhalation sedation, despite its similarity to gas used during childbirth.

Various circumstances warrant dental sedation, including patients who prefer not to remember their treatment, those requiring complex procedures, children needing advanced dental care, and individuals with extreme anxiety or dental phobia. Sedation can help patients overcome their fears and eventually receive treatment without sedation.

Our Dental Sedation course offers hands-on training in the latest techniques, from nitrous oxide to oral conscious sedation. 

Make your patients’ dental visits a breeze and take your practice to the next level.

Dental Sedation Nursing NEBDN
Conscious Sedation is a vital part of modern dentistry enabling a huge number of patients with anxieties and phobias to access care they otherwise could not tolerate. In the UK this involves the administration of sedative drugs which patients may take orally, inhale or have injected. As well as removing anxiety these drugs can have many significant side effects which the dental team must be able to recognise and manage in a calm and effective way.

Options
All dental sedation qualifications will require you to achieve a balanced mixture of knowledge and practical skills, as well as demonstrating an appropriate professional attitude. To ensure dental sedation qualifications reflect the areas of practice the dental nurse works in, we offer the following three options:

  • Certificate in Dental Sedation Nursing
  • Award in Inhalation Sedation Dental Nursing
  • Award in Intravenous Sedation Dental Nursing

All three qualifications are at the same level. The titles ‘Award’ and ‘Certificate’ indicate the difference in the number of learning hours required to complete each qualification.
