Dr. Proussaefs has received formal training in all forms of sedation since 1997. He has been providing dental care for patients under I.V. (moderate) sedation or oral (minimal) sedation.  Having tremendous exposure in sedating patients over the years, his seminars will be focused on SAFETY, and in particular airway management, patient monitoring, and handling emergencies. The course involves lecturing, hands-on practicing on a manikin, and real patient experience. The discussion with the instructor will focus on sharing the instructor’s 20 years’ experience in sedating dental patients.
