About the Course

The successful completion of this course will allow participants to apply for RCDSO authorization to provide Nitrous Oxide and/or Oral Moderate Sedation in the dental office. 

Note: In Ontario, dentists providing Oral Moderate Sedation must only do so in an office with an appropriate RCDSO facility permit.

The Two courses are as follows:

1. Review of Emergencies in the Dental Office (6 CE Core 1 Hours) - This Course is a pre-requisite for Oral and Nitrous Oxide Sedation. However, It is included with registration. The general dentist will have an increased aptitude to recognize signs and symptoms of potential office emergencies and will be equipped with the knowledge to intervene appropriately.

  • A multiple-choice exam will be administered and a minimum score of 70% must be attained to be considered to have successfully completed the course. A maximum of 1 exam retake will be allowed.

2. Oral and Nitrous Oxide Sedation (20 CE Core 2 Hours ) - Second part of the course has the purpose of providing clinical and didactic skills for dentists to administer Minimal Sedation effectively and safely by either Nitrous Oxide or Oral medication, or to administer Moderate Sedation with the above routes independently or in combination. 

  • A multiple-choice exam will be administered and a minimum score of 80% must be attained to be considered to have successfully completed the course. A maximum of 1 exam retake will be allowed.

Note: Prior self-study of the course material is required. All participants will be evaluated on technical aspects and didactic components to ensure competency. A participant who scores between 65%-79% on the sedation exam will not be considered to have successfully completed this course and considered only to be potentially qualified to administer Minimal Sedation Nitrous Oxide.
