Course Summary

You'll gain the knowledge and skills necessary to use intravenous and inhalational sedation techniques on a wide range of anxious patients, including adults and children.


The Conscious Sedation in Dentistry PGCert aims to provide you with:

  • a systematic understanding of the theoretical principles. This will underpin conscious sedation in dentistry and the care of patients undergoing sedation.
  • a comprehensive practical understanding of clinical skills in intravenous and inhalational sedation techniques, as applicable to UK practice in dentistry
