Supervisor Approval (STAC)
You need to apply for approval to supervise newly trained members of the conscious sedation dental team who have recently received appropriate knowledge and skills training elsewhere but require clinical supervision to move on to independent practice.
Potential STAC Approved Supervisors must demonstrate their own relevant knowledge, skills and experience before supervising sedation new starters. Supervisors are expected to have completed a minimum of 50 cases of the technique being supervised over the preceding two year period. This number must not include any cases completed during the supervisor's own supervised clinical practice.
Approval lasts for three years. Please submit a new form if you wish to renew your approval.
If you are a new sedationist who has received the appropriate knowledge and skills training and you are finding it difficult to find a supervisor in your area, we may be able to help. Please email your details to STAC and we will do our best to help you.
