Dr. Hunter will be out of the office from 3/2/2016- 3/7/2016 as she is attending a course sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. The course, Safe and Effective Sedation of the Pediatric Dental Patient, is a review course designed specifically for pediatric dentists who are seeking to refresh their knowledge of sedation techniques.
Survey of Sedation Practices Used in Pediatric Dentistry
The week long course is being held in Chicago, and will include lectures, interactive case studies, and reviews of topics associated with safe sedation. Lecturers will cover topics ranging from the importance of the pre-sedation assessment, sedation and post-sedation periods, patient monitoring and the future trends of sedation techniques. Students enrolled in the course will be presented with additional materials about preparing children of all personality types, selecting the right drug and a reference list of sedation drugs.
Why is Sedation Important?
The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry estimates that anywhere from 100,000-250,000 pediatric dental sedation are performed annually throughout the nation. Knowing more about which procedure to use and in what situation to use it helps Dr. Hunter continue to be a highly sought after pediatric dentist in Sugar Land, Texas.
For attending this course, Dr. Hunter will receive continuing education credits, and say up to date on best practices for pediatric dental sedation.
