- Dental anesthesiology
Dental anesthesiology (or dental anaesthesiology) is the specialty of dentistry that deals with the management of pain through the use of advanced local and general anesthesia techniques.
Australia and New Zealand
Dental anesthesiology requires an extra 24 to 36 months of postgraduate training after completion of a degree in dentistry which usually culminates in a graduate diploma of clinical dentistry (GradDipClinDent). Graduates are eligible for Fellowship with the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (FANZCA).
United States and Canada
Dental anesthesiology training is usually 24 to 36 months in length and accredited and overseen by CODA. The American Dental Board of Anesthesiology examines and certifies dentists who complete an accredited program of anesthesiology training in the United States or Canada. Dentists may then apply for Board Certification through the ADBA which requires ongoing and continual post-graduate education for maintenance.1
As of June 1st, 2011, the American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists has submitted an application to the American Dental Association in order to recognize Dental Anesthesiology as a specialty within the practice of dentistry.
