Re-certification Course

State Board Requirements:

Most states require refresher training every two years. Each state has guidelines for both didactic and/or clinical experiences. Check with your local State Board for the specific regulations in your state and we will make every effort to help you comply with their requirements.

The St. Joseph’s University Medical Center sponsored program by ASAASD is a comprehensive 3-day review and re-certification program. Each day can be taken individually or in combination to achieve the requirements for your licensure. The first two days is a14-hour Sedation Review Course “Providing Safe and Effective Sedation in Dentistry & OMS”. This two day review is given May 6 & 7th, 2021. 

The third day, a 7-hour course adds SIMLAB and lectures for both the doctor and sedation assistants. This unique course is given May 8th, 2021.

When all three courses are taken together, each attendee will receive 21 hours CE credit for re-certification.
