Review Course in Minimal Enteral (Oral) Sedation (Level 1 Sedation)
Required Every Two Years for Permit Holders Hybrid Course
October 27, 2023
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

A hybrid course means that you may choose to either attend on campus to experience the lecture from the speaker in person (referred to as the "in person" option) or to attend virtually via a live and interactive webinar with the speaker (referred to as the "webinar" option). The in person option means that you are invited to visit our campus and attend the lecture in a classroom or auditorium. The webinar option means that you choose to log in to a virtual call (hosted via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, etc.) and to attend for the duration of the lecture via your computer, laptop, or other capable device. You will select your option while registering online by proceeding through the registration process, and while selecting your fee option, select either the "in person" or "webinar" option. The TSBDE views live webinars and in person courses equally, you will receive the same "live credit" by participating in either format option of a hybrid course. “No shows” will not qualify for refunds. A "no show" is an attendee that did not log into nor view/access the webinar or in-person course. Regarding Continuing Education credit hours, in order to receive full CE credits for a webinar option, you must attend the course in its full duration. Please note that we do not award partial credit hours. In order to verify your attendance for TSBDE, we use attendance accounting information from our webinar software that records the amount of time each participant attended. Understand that, if you do not attend the full duration of the course, you will not receive any credit hours. Please ensure that your device (laptop, phone, computer, etc.) and account name (Zoom, Microsoft Teams, etc.) are appropriate, legible, and identify the attendee so that verifying attendance is expedited.
