Modern-day medicine has been made possible by one important invention – sedation. Not all of us are like the surgeon-explorer in Antarctica who performed appendicitis on himself without anaesthesia. Sedation nowadays is a very tightly-regulated process in the operating theatre. Even in dentistry, despite the ubiquity of local anaesthesia, sedation and general anaesthesia are increasingly used for those who are a bit anxious or belong to a younger demographic group.

At the same time, many different drugs are used for sedation, each carrying their own adverse effects and pharmacological profiles (#stressful). Suffice to say, because of the ‘tightrope’ nature of many dental procedures, knowing about sedation enlarges your skill-set which is eventually beneficial for your career. Don’t worry – Rome is not built in a day. There are loads to learn before you can be confident with a new skill. We are here to help you!

Since sedation is a – wait for it – huge topic (not to mention the various sedation options available), we’ve got three qualifications or pathways that you can go for under this course:

yes london waterloo academyCertificate in Dental Sedation Nursing;

yes london waterloo academyAward in Inhalation Sedation Dental Nursing;

yes london waterloo academyAward in Intravenous Sedation Dental Nursing.

‘Award’ and ‘certificate’ are just fancy names reflecting how many hours you’ve spent in your training. Qualification-wise, they are of the same level. As you can see, the two awards focus on certain branches of sedation, whereas the certificate gives you a more general overview of the field.
