Dr. David Carsten
Our featured speaker for the evening, Dr. David Carsten, DDS, will be presenting "Oral Sedation, When to Hold 'Em and When to Fold 'Em."
Oral Sedation is used frequently as an important modality for modern dental practice. Various drugs can make dentistry possible for anxious patients. Combining it with nitrous oxide can make it work better, however, it doesn’t always work and it isn’t always safe. It's important to know when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em. Learn how to avoid problems in this lecture.
