Psychosedation, Oral Sedation and Nitrous Oxide
Many of our patients are quite anxious about seeking and receiving dental treatment. In fact, it may lead to some people avoiding dental care completely until excruciating pain gives them no choice. Dentists should be able to provide alternatives to control a patient’s anxiety and to assist them to receive treatment.
This course will cover a spectrum of anxiety relieving alternatives. It will give the caring dentist a selection of anxiolytic techniques that can be offered to their patients including psychosedation, oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation.
All participants will have the opportunity to administer and experience the full range of effects of relative analgesia using nitrous oxide- oxygen, and, after completing the course, will feel confident in setting up and administering this agent.
During the practical session, participants will work in groups and learn both slow and fast nitrous oxide-oxygen induction techniques. It is essential that all participants wishing to perform any procedure on a colleague in a learning environment are registered dental professionals in Australia.

Program Cancellation / Rescheduling
CPD takes all care to produce high quality program events that deliver as promised. All advertised details are correct at the time of publication. However when circumstances beyond our control prevail, CPD reserves the right to cancel, postpone, relocate or reschedule any program. If CPD exercises this option, CPD will employ reasonable endeavours to notify delegates as early as possible to minimise inconvenience. CPD will not accept any responsibility for travel and accommodation costs incurred by delegates. Where a refund is due to a delegate, a refund for the amount paid will be issued within 30 days of notification. In the case of program post-ponement or rescheduling, the delegate may choose to transfer the fee from the cancelled course to a future program of equal value. In this case these terms and conditions apply.
