Nitrous Oxide Administration Competency- X9230
This competency can be challenged anytime after you enter clinic and have completed the Nitrous Oxide Administration lab.
The competency consists of the independent administration and management of nitrous oxide to a patient. It can be done during almost any procedure in clinic (make sure to book a chair that has the hook-ups available) and even during your Healthy Smiles rotation.
You must inform your covering faculty that you are challenging your competency prior to the appointment beginning. The X-code can be planned chair-side.
Successful administration of nitrous oxide to a patient during a dental procedure will result in a passing grade. There is no grading criteria published by the school for this competency.
