Sedation Dentistry Safety Week Spotlights the Important Role of Dental Team Members
Date:3/10/2009

specialized training for team members - both alongside dentists and in courses on their own. DOCS Education is the 2009 host of SDSW.

DOCS Education encourages all dentists and their teams to review "The 7-Step Sedation Dentistry Safety Checklist," that was issued on March 9th as part of SDSW, and to make time during the day today to discuss ways that each dental office can reinforce its safety protocols.

Dental team members, when properly trained, regularly aid the dentist in obtaining accurate and thorough medical histories on each patient well in advance of actual treatment. They provide important safety instructions to each patient, emphasizing the requirement that all patients be accompanied by a family member or other designated driver.

Qualified team members also see to it that a sedation patient is never left unattended. Moreover, they take responsibility for dismissing each patient after treatment, always making certain the patient is driven home, and then they follow through to check on the patients once they reach home.

Although complications in sedation dentistry cases are extremely rare when performed by a trained dentist following American Dental Association guidelines and/or regulations set by individual state dental boards, team members are a crucial part of emergency response efforts should they ever be needed.

"The best sedation dentists in the country are the best because they take the time to train and include all their team members," Dr. Silverman says. "Sedation patients tell us time and again how much they 'love' the dental assistants and other dental office staff they come to know during their dental visits."
