Outstanding Dentists Selected for $1,000 Pediatric Sedation Dentistry Scholarships

In conjunction with the Sixth Annual Sedation Safety Week (SSW), four $1,000 educational scholarships were awarded to dentists who work in the non-profit sector. We are pleased to announce our scholarship winners have been selected. These outstanding dentists have all displayed an exceptional commitment to safety and excellence in pediatric dentistry:

These $1,000 scholarships will help facilitate their ability to receive advanced training in pediatric safety by attending DOCS Education's Pediatric Sedation Dentistry course. This three-day, comprehensive course provides clinicians with the foundational skills to begin implementing pediatric sedation into their practices and will help these dentists continue on their journey of providing children around the nation with the dental treatment they need and deserve.

What is Sedation Safety Week?

Tens of thousands of dentists practice sedation dentistry, and sedation continuing education organization, DOCS Education, is taking the week of March 17 to raise awareness on sedation safety. Each year beginning the Monday after daylight savings time, DOCS Education highlights specific issues vital to safe and rewarding sedation implementation. All dentists are highly urged to participate by testing their safety equipment and checking shelf-life dates of supplies as well as reviewing state regulations and safety procedures.
