Sedation Provider Type:
A dental specialty is a formally recognized, specific scope of dentistry that can be pursued after graduating from dental school. All recognized specialties require specialized training and skills and two to five years in a university-based program. Orthodontics is an example of a dental specialty. “Cosmetic” and “implant” dentistry are not recognized specialties. There are eleven recognized dental specialties in Ontario.
Dentists may offer different levels of sedation depending on their training and qualifications. There are three levels of sedation used in dentistry which require authorization by the College: moderate, conscious and deep sedation/general anesthesia.
Non-visiting providers are dentists who use the sedation equipment and emergency drugs that are permanently kept onsite in the office/facility where procedures are performed. Visiting providers bring with them all the necessary sedation equipment and emergency drugs approved by the College to an office with the appropriate facility permit.
