DQAC Dental Anesthesia Committee Meeting

May 29
12:00 PM

At this meeting, the Committee will be offering clarification regarding administration of a single oral agent, with or without nitrous oxide, as described in WAC 246-817-745 2(b): “Administer oral sedative agents in the treatment setting or prescribe for patient dosage prior to the appointment. Single oral agents must be in a dose that is not to exceed the manufacturer's maximum recommended for home use.

Specifically, in the absence of a manufacturer’s recommended home dose, meaning that there is no manufacturer’s maximum, and whether the administration of a single oral agent would still be considered minimal sedation.

Additionally, the Committee plans to discuss WAC 246-817-205 - Dental Anesthesia Assistant Certification Requirements in response to Taryn Lee, Director of Clinical Support, Dynamic Access, regarding clarification of dental anesthesia assistant training requirements.
