Dr Michael Walker graduated from the University of Sydney in 1983. He is a general practitioner who owns and manages a practice in Waterloo, Sydney which specialises in treating patients who are anxious or fearful of dental treatment and so provides treatment under Nitrous Oxide Sedation, Intravenous Sedation & General Anaesthesia.
Dr Walker performs a significant amount of complex procedures on a daily basis & therefore needs various forms of sedation. Nitrous Oxide is used daily in his practice.
Dr Walker is the senior Clinical Associate of the University of Sydney in the Conscious Sedation Diploma & external examiner to the course. Dr Walker has been teaching Nitrous Oxide sedation for many years.
Dr Walker is also a fellow of the Pierre Fauchard Academy and an active member of the Australian Society of Dental Anaesthesiology, past President & Treasurer.
This is a course that meets the standards of the International Federation of Dental Anaesthesiology Societies. The first half of the day will be lecture style with the afternoon being hands-on.
This course will enable participants to become proficient and confident in the administration of nitrous oxide in clinical practice.
This course is a refresher for dentists wishing to update their theory and practical skills in the delivery of relative analgesia. Participants will be given the opportunity to administer nitrous oxide – oxygen sedation to each other, and to experience themselves the effects of the gases in a safe environment.
