The impact of COVID-19 on the provision of Conscious Sedation

22nd October 2020

During this joint webinar with The Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry (SAAD) there will be a discussion as to how the profession is coping with the changes brought about by COVID and guidance on how to provide services safely.

At a time when access to General Anaesthesia services are limited conscious sedation techniques have an even greater role in providing care for patients with dental phobia and those requiring special care dentistry.

This webinar will allow dentists with an interest in sedation from all sectors and specialities to discuss and review the impact of COVID-19 on sedation. It will give them an opportunity to hear from experienced practitioners and to ask them questions.


The panel includes:

  • Professor Philip Taylor (Chair)
    RCSEd FDS Dean Elect
  • Dr Dave Pearson
    Consultant Oral Surgeon, SAAD Trustee & Faculty Member
  • Dr Sadie Hughes
    Specialist in Special Care Dentistry, SAAD Trustee & Chair of STAC
  • Dr Paul Howlett
    General Dental Practitioner and SAAD Trustee
  • Dr Prabhleen Anand
    Consultant Paediatric Dentist and SAAD Faculty Member
