Plantation, FL (PRWEB) January 24, 2014
Recently announced changes in Florida laws now require dental practitioners to successfully complete a minimum of four hours of airway management training in order to work with sedated patients without anesthesia permits. Sleep Dentists are proud to announce they will be offering a Basic Airway Management Certification course throughout Florida to help dentists comply with Florida law and safely perform sedation dental services.
The Basic Airway Management Certification course will educate practitioners in proper airway management and ventilation techniques including basic airway assessment, removing airway obstructions, insertion of airway adjuncts, and mask ventilation. Upon successful completion, practitioners receive a Basic Airway Management Certification and are compliant with the new Florida statutes.
Registration is now open for the initial course offerings in South Florida. The first course offering will be on February 19, 2014 at the Florida Institute for Advanced Dental Education in Miami, Florida followed by a course on March 7, 2014 at Patterson Dental in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
