It has been compiled in order that any dental nurse, whether working within a dental practice that provides sedation or not, after reading would have a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the dental nurse, enabling them to recognise good practice. It can also be used in conjunction with any course material that may be provided to dental nurses who are sitting the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses’ National Certificate in Dental Sedation Nursing examination, as it has been written in a user-friendly manner covering all aspects relevant to the examination. There is no intention of instructing/criticising clinicians, anaesthetists or any professionals on their role in the surgery, which have only been explained to further the knowledge of dental nurses.
Any offence is entirely unintended and apologies are tendered for any perceived affront. Dental nurses are subsequently reminded/warned that on no account should they undertake any duty that is solely the province of the clinician/anaesthetist or any other professional.
A small percentage of the population in any country actively avoids attending a dentist because of fear and those who do attend declare themselves anxious in a dental environment. The two main reasons for non-attendance are fear and associated costs. Patients who do not attend because of fear can be classified as being phobic, whereas others can be termed anxious. Other reasons for non-attendance can be attributed to lack of dentists in the area, difficulty in registering with a dentist or inability to access a dentist because of factors such as mobility problems. The provision of sedation in oral, intravenous, inhalation and transmucosal (off-licence) forms helps to overcome a patient’s fears and anxieties, but not necessarily their phobia.
