Welcome to 

The RA Coach©

Dr. Richard Charon BDS (Manc.1975) 

IACSD accredited trainer (Dec 2015) and mentor in

Inhalation Sedation






18th May 2016

 

1) The recent letter from the CDO to all NHS registered practices on sedation, is essentially aimed primarily at NHS salaried services and commissioners.

2) My discussion with IACSD committee members at the Dental Sedation Teacher's Group symposium yesterday in Glasgow confirmed that the latest guidelines from 2015 still point the way to best practice and my own courses should continue to follow these.

3) DSTG & SAAD have issued the same statements on their respective websites on the CDOs /DoHs letter.

4) My conversation today with the IACSD administrator confirms that they intend to publish a list of accredited conscious sedation courses via RCS website and that at present I am the only independent accredited trainer for those new to Inhalation Sedation in the UK.

Here is what 2 of the UK’s most experienced Dental Sedationists, who have each run their own Conscious Sedation courses, have said.

=========================================================

Dr. Adam Glassford BChD Dip Con Sed (Ncle) Dip Imp Dent (RCS)(Eng)(Adv. Cert) 

Yorkshire Sedation Training
8th March 2014

"I went on Richard's course a few weeks ago.... fantastic!  You won't find a more passionate and informative speaker! You even get a go on the happy air!"

=========================================================

Dr. Roy Bennett BDS MFGDP (UK) of Mellow Dental, Liverpool

”I graduated from Liverpool Dental School in 1987, obtained the MFGDP from the Royal College of Surgeons in 2006 and then my Diploma in Dental Sciences from the University in 2008.  I have divided my time between the practice and teaching at the Liverpool University Dental School over the last 13 years.  I am committed to the highest standards of clinical care and to the on-going process of postgraduate education.”

He said the following of the courses we run on 11th April 2012.

“ I highly recommend this course to dentists, hygienists, therapists and nurses. It is a fantastic practice builder.  It WILL set you apart from the competition in Private practice. Even if you don't want to do it yourself I would encourage (nay even fund !) one of your team to attend to learn about this excellent but sadly under used technique in practice. Richard is a great guy and its one of the best courses I ve attended in the last 20 years! “

 I hope this may help you to make up your mind about attended one of the RA courses that I offer.

"Hi Richard

I just want to thank you, Chris and the rest of your team for a great course last Saturday.  It was hugely informative and has greatly increased my confidence and enthusiasm for using RA.

Kind regards 
Lotte "

Lotte had traveled from Ireland to spend the day with us in Newbury 
The 2009 Adult Dental Health Survey showed 70% of respondents were mildly anxious to phobic !!!

Are these training day's worthwhile?

 

Dr. Roy Bennett  of Mellow Dental, Liverpool

This is what he had to say about the courses I have been running since 2003, having attended the course in November 2011 and a little more about him.

Dr. Roy Bennett BDS MFGDP (UK)

”I graduated from Liverpool Dental School in 1987, obtained the MFGDP from the Royal College of Surgeons in 2006 and then my Diploma in Dental Sciences from the University in 2008. 

My dental career began on the Wirral where I worked as an associate for a number of years. In 1995, I joined a private practice www.whitbydental.com  and became a partner in 1998.  I have divided my time between the practice and teaching at the Liverpool University Dental School over the last 13 years.  I am committed to the highest standards of clinical care and to the on-going process of postgraduate education.”

Dr. Roy Bennett also has the Diploma in Dental Sedation said the following on 11th April 2012.

 “ I highly recommend this course to dentists, hygienists, therapists and nurses. It is a fantastic practice builder.  It WILL set you apart from the competition in Private practice. Even if you don't want to do it yourself I would encourage (nay even fund !) one of your team to attend to learn about this excellent but sadly under used technique in practice. Richard is a great guy and its one of the best courses I ve attended in the last 20 years! “

 

I hope this may help you to make up your mind about attended one of the RA courses that I offer.

 


Already in Private Practice?

Then "RA" is a Practice Builder.
Promoting yourselves to anxious patient but don't offer RA?

Then you are missing a huge opportunity

Moving out of NHS dentistry? –then be different !

Staying in NHS dentistry, with a sedation contract and need to show your PCT certification of update?  Others have attended for this reason. You may get PCT funding.

Already using Inhalation Sedation? Then you will need to show

12 hours vCPD every 5 years

Already using IV but considering RA too?

Are you a DCP seeking training to further your clinical skills and enhance your working day with anxious or gagging patients?
