[2 Credits]
This course is intended to provide residents/graduate students with the knowledge prerequisite to the establishment of a dental environment where patients will be able to satisfactorily accept the necessary professional services. Patient evaluation and the psychological aspects of patient management will be presented, along with the modalities of local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, and I.V. sedation. The techniques taught are designed to maintain intact the patient’s protective reflexes. The course is intended to provide only the didactic information necessary to safely administer these modalities; it is not designed as a substitute for the vital clinical experiences the residents/graduate students will receive in the other aspects of their training programs.
