Our Conscious Sedation in Dentistry PG Diploma has been suspended for April 2021 and October 2021 entry. This means that we won’t be able to accept applications for these entry dates.
We are now offering a new Postgraduate Certificate for 2021 entry.
The Pg Cert in Conscious Sedation aims to provide you with:
- a systematic understanding of the theoretical principles which underpin conscious sedation in dentistry and the care of patients undergoing sedation
- a comprehensive practical understanding of clinical skills in intravenous and inhalational sedation techniques, as applicable to UK practice in dentistry
The programme is one of the few in the UK that provides dentists with Level 7 PG Certificate training in sedation. We provide students with hands-on clinical training and provide the key knowledge base and skills in conscious sedation required to safely practice conscious sedation as an independent practitioner.
