Oral Sedation Dentistry Regulations
The Alberta Dental Association and College advises dentists to complete a "training that has specifically incorporated the teaching of techniques utilizing supplemental use of a sedative drug, and whose competency has been evaluated and attested to by the course instructor and program director who have been approved by the ADA+C" and obtain a Modality 3 permit before providing their patients with minimal or moderate sedation using an oral sedative with nitrous, supplemental dosing of an oral sedative, or more than one sedative agent.*
*Even when the intent is only a single dose of a single sedative (without nitrous), the ADA&C still advises “successful completion of a training program designed to produce competency in Modality 2 sedation.”
DISCLAIMER: The ADA&C does not approve or endorse any particular product, service, or company.
