General Info


This course is intended for dental practitioners trained in the delivery of intravenous moderate sedation to general anesthesia. Emergency scenarios will be customized to the level of sedation & anesthesia the practitioner provides, and the emergencies likely to be encountered. Course space is limited to provide each registrant with a low student:faculty ratio and an optimal hands-on experience.

Because emergency crisis is best managed by a team approach, participants will practice scenarios as supportive groups. Doctors are highly encouraged to include their office staff in this course, so as to mimic an actual emergency situation.


This program places the participant into realistic clinical simulations which represent emergencies most commonly encountered during the delivery of all levels of sedation up to general anesthesia. Situational scenarios will specifically emphasize hands-on training in airway management. Participants are divided into two groups based on level of practice, either moderate sedation or general anesthesia. The SIM course will include pre-simulation didactics, followed by a review of essential emergency management principles. Participants will then break into smaller groups to practice emergency patient management on High-Fidelity Laerdal SimMan 3G human patient simulators in real time. A more comprehensive pre-simulation didactic presentation will be offered for the Las Vegas course. Each participant will contribute to various emergency scenarios customized to the provider’s level and type of sedation over the course of the session. Following each scenario, participants will share in a debriefing to discuss the efficacy of each intervention.

In preparation, registrants will be provided with pre-requisite reading materials, including treatment algorithms, and an optional online course pretest that may be completed prior to the course date for additional 2 CE credits. To make the best use of the available time, participants will also be provided with a list of mock drugs and available equipment.


The 1/2 day SimMan course provides 4.5 hours of CE credit. Doctors may register for an additional 2 CE (6.5 CE total) that is awarded for successful completion of an online multiple choice pretest that examines the prerequisite reading materials. This examination must be completed prior to the course date to obtain the additional 2 CE credits.
