 14 CPD Approved

This two-day course aims to deliver a comprehensive overview of conscious sedation for the dental sedation team.

Book Now Closing date: 06 November 2023


This two-day course will provide a comprehensive overview of conscious sedation for the sedation team. This will total 14 hours of verifiable CPD, fulfilling the 5-year IACSD requirement. The event is suitable for all members of the dental team including dental nurses and DCP’s and will allow delegates to experience hands on simulation scenario training and lecture-based updates.


It will provide those looking to be involved in sedation with an overview of sedation practice, while providing those who are already trained with an update.


This is not an IACSD accredited sedation course and therefore participants will not be trained to autonomously deliver sedation after participation in the course.

***Dental nurses are encouraged to join the course and can attend for a discounted fee. In addition, group bookings of 3 or more delegates from the same practice or workplace will receive a 10% overall discount, please contact esther.malcolm@rcpsg.ac.uk to book***
