The course on Sunday will complete the 2 year requirement (7 CE hours) or the recertification of pediatric oral sedation. Pediatric oral sedation is defined as 13 and younger. Only recertification courses will be offered. This is NOT an initial certification course.

There will be a review on how patient selection and medication selection can help maximize success and reduce the stress of failed outcomes.
