Lecture Objectives:

The Washington State Dental Quality Assurance Committee (DQAC) has made significant changes

in the state’s Dental General Anesthesia Permit regulations including mandating an On-Site

Anesthesia Evaluation every 5 years. The Commission has approved the Washington State Society

of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons as one of the organizations that can administer the On-Site

Inspection. It is essential that all WSSOMS office evaluations meet the same standard.

This course will do the following:

1. Review the standards for the AAOMS Office Anesthesia Evaluation.

2. Calibrate the “WSSOMS Office Inspectors” to assure all office inspections meet AAOMS and

DQAC equipment, records, emergence protocols, regular staff practice drills of emergency protocols,

availability of emergency medications, monitoring, and patient discharge requirements.

3. Prepare the WSSOMS membership for their upcoming office inspection.

4. Review the additional state requirements for General Anesthesia Permit holders
