Doctor News: IV Sedation and the certification of Advanced Cardiac Life Support

Traverse City, MI – Northwood Dental is proud to announce that our facility has been approved for IV anesthesia.

Dr. Brian Klym has completed the required training for IV Sedation through the Georgia University Medical College, and has been approved for IV anesthesia based on the guidelines set forth by the American Association of Oral Maxillofacial Surgeons - AAOMS.

Dr. Brian Klym has also received his certification in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) through the American Heart Association by completing 60 hours of course work and performing supervised sedation of 20 patients.

By completing the advanced training and certifications listed above, Northwood Dental now meets or exceeds the standards of emergency guidelines for an anesthesia facility.

"We are excited to be able to make IV sedation and true sleep dentistry available to our patients. While our focus will be performing moderate or conscious sedation, these new certifications allow Northwood Dental the ability to make advanced dental treatments truly painless. Now, whether a person is looking for more dental work to be completed during one sitting, or they are looking towards sedation as a way to reduce a natural gagging reflex, Northwood Dental is better able to comfortably accommodate each of them on an individual basis. With our ACLS certification, we are also able to comfortably deliver emergency treatment to extreme emergency cases using the same methods found in hospitals and medical clinics." said Dr. Brian Klym.
