As part of our Selected Topics in Periodontics series the Grad Perio residents were treated to a four part lecture series on dental sedation, taught by Affiliate Assistant Professor Dr. Geoffrey Bean. For the final evening of the series they practiced their techniques on IV training arms loaned to the department by the Institute for Simulation and Interprofessional Studies here at the UW.

Special thanks to Dr. Bean for leading the series – we really enjoyed his presentations and insightful instruction! We’re already looking forward to next year and another great course.
