Lecture Course
Review Course in Enteral (Oral) Conscious Sedation
Level I Sedation



Effective FEBRUARY 2018, the hours for Level 1 have gone from 8 to 6 hours.
This course is designed to satisfy the Texas Dental Board requirement for continuing education in
minimal enteral sedation (required every 2 years for level 1 minimal sedation permit holders). This course does not qualify a dentist to apply for a new minimal sedation permit. Individuals who complete the course will receive a certificate, which can be submitted to the TSBDE as documentation of continuing education in minimal sedation.

At the end of this course, the participant will have a renewed understanding of the many elements of
the safe administration of enteral conscious sedation including:
• Spectrum of sedation and the limits of
enteral sedation.
• Patient evaluation and appropriate patient
selection with an emphasis on recognizing patients at high risk of complications.
• Pharmacology of sedative agents including drug interactions and appropriate selection for patients with differing medical conditions.
• Appropriate use, limitations of and interpretation of monitors.
• Management of urgencies and emergencies especially as they pertain to minimal sedation.
• Rules and Regulations of the TSBDE on the administration of minimal enteral sedation
