Event Details

Nitrous Oxide, Psychosedation and Oral Sedation:

to control a patient’s anxiety and to assist them to receive treatment.

This course will cover a spectrum of anxiety relieving alternatives. It will give the caring dentist a selection of
anxiolytic techniques that can be offered to their patients including nitrous oxidesedation, psychosedation
