The 3-Day "new starters" Course was accredited by the accreditation sub-committee of  IACSD from Dec 2015-2018.

This body was later disbanded and their role taken over by the RCS STAC (Sedation Trainers Accreditation Committee of the Dental Faculty of the RCS) who have written to confirm that the accreditation still stands to be reviewed after Dec 31st 2018.

In Dec 2017 The Dental Council of Ireland, after consideration of the evidence submitted has also accepted these courses as meeting their requirements with a review date at the end of 2020.

However you must ensure that you comply with dental and legal requirements of your own country and I am not therefore responsible for your actions or your competence.

I am happy to consider travelling outside the UK and Ireland, to offer a structured mentoring program as offered to UK dentists.

A fee for that will be quoted on an individual basis

PLEASE NOTE: Payments for these accredited courses made later than 2 month in advance, when booked beforehand and places reserved, may be subject to an additional administration surcharge of £50.00.
