Before applying for a permit for sedation or anesthesia, it is imperative for you to thoroughly review Section 7.0 of the Rules and Regulations of the Delaware Board of Dentistry and Dental Hygiene.

A patient who is given an intravenous drug is in a state of deep sedation if he or she loses either the ability to respond rationally to command or any protective reflexes at any time during the procedure.
