I agree with the board's intentions to better clarify the rules and regulations for sedation and anesthesia in dental offices. The more consistency and clarity there is in the rules the less room there is for common error and mistakes. I think that the use of a three-person team in the operatory during administration of moderate sedation is a good idea because there are more people to monitor, catch errors and assist if necessary.
