Here is Lucy Watwood Registered Dental Nurse (RDN), one of our lovely nurses, receiving a SAAD Assessed Sedation badge ( the first in the country to be given) from Christopher Holden.
All of our RDNs are trained and qualified to assist our dentists in conscious sedation. Conscious sedation is not universally offered in General Dental Practice due to the special qualifications, training and equipment required. Our practice has a special interest in sedation and has done so for many years. Both of our dentists Christopher Holden and Anita Patel can offer a range of sedation options to patients who may be anxious, frightened, phobic or scared of some aspect of dentistry, in some way. Or where a physical problem, such as a gag reflex, may make treatment difficult for them.
If this is something that may benefit you, or someone you know, more information is available on this website, in our practice leaflets or by calling one of our Team 01246 230230.
Congratulations Lucy, and well done in all your hard work in achieving this award.
