CRNAs and SRNAs learn considerations, requirements, and barriers for CRNAs providing dental anesthesia in office-based settings. As an increasing number of patients of all ages and complexities seek sedation and anesthesia for dental procedures, it is important to keep patient safety central to the delivery of this type of care. Additionally, learners understand more about the essential aspects of dental anesthesia, such as business considerations; state licensure, permit requirements, and compliance; monitoring and equipment requirements; clinical considerations and anesthesia techniques; reimbursement arrangements; barriers to practice; and AANA resources.
