Difficult airway is the leading issue in dental patient safety when anesthesia is used; it is a critical part of sedation training.
In Florida, an increased interest in safety prompted Section 466.0135 of the Florida Statutes, which mandates dentists who hold a permit for sedation must complete 4 hours of continuing education training on airway management. The training must include 2 hours of didactic training and 2 hours of hands-on skills training, and dentists are required to repeat this training every 4 years.
The Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation, a Florida Board of Dentistry approved continuing education provider, offers Airway Management for Dentists to provide dental professionals with comprehensive instruction and practice in a risk-free, simulated environment. In this course, learners will demonstrate the skills required to evaluate and mange a patient’s airway. They will gain confidence in their ability to perform procedures and walk away with a strategy of patient care.
TARGET AUDIENCE (WHO SHOULD ATTEND?)
This course is designed for oral surgeons, pediatric dentists, periodontists, and general dentists in Florida who are required to complete 4 hours of continuing education in airway management.
USF Health is accredited by the Florida Board of Dentistry to provide continuing education for dentists.
USF Health designates this live activity for a maximum of 4.0 credits. Dentists should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
