WSS’s Dental IV Sedation Course

Succinct and Concise. Focusing on Common Sense Evidence-Based Principles that Matter.

Course Highlights:

Patient Selection

At WSS, we prioritize patient safety. Therefore, we do not recommend treating medically compromised patients unless the anesthesia is provided by an anesthesiologist or CRNA. We advocate for limiting sedation to ASA I and ASA II patients.


Our course emphasizes the proper administration (titration) of two drugs, fentanyl and midazolam (versed), in combination with a ‘magic’ oral sedation enhancer. We equip you with the knowledge and skills to effectively manage sedation levels.

Airway Patency

Confidently managing your patient’s airway is crucial. At WSS, we provide comprehensive training to ensure you can handle any potential complications. We understand that anesthesia-related issues often stem from compromised airways.

Proficiency Training

We believe in a hands-on approach to learning. Our course combines informative lectures, practical repetition, and interactive training to help you achieve proficiency in IV moderate sedation.

By completing our course, you will be able to provide IV moderate sedation to your patients with the utmost safety and confidence.
