Oral Sedation Dentistry Regulations
New York State Board for Dentistry Rule §61.10 (c)(iii)(a)(2)(ii) requires a dentist to complete at least 18 hours of university-based didactic training with 20 clinical patient experiences, and obtain a permit before administering Oral Conscious Sedation to their adult patients.*
* When the intent is Anxiolysis only, a permit is not required.
NYU's 22-hour Enteral Sedation at NYU course is approved by the New York State Board for Dentistry as meeting the 18-hour university-based didactic training requirement for the NY enteral sedation permit.
NOTE: Effective January 1, 2012 every dental office in the state of New York is required to have an automated external defibrillator (AED) or other defibrillator. The dentist and staff must be prepared to use this equipment in an emergency.
