Nitrous Oxide Monitoring Certificate

The Nitrous Oxide Monitoring Certificate is an Optional Certificate for Dental Assistants.  The Dental Practice Act regulates all dental auxiliaries who take x-rays, monitor the administration of nitrous oxide/oxygen inhalation conscious sedation, apply pit and fissure sealants and perform coronal polishing.

Pit and Fissure Sealant Certifications issued by other state regulatory agencies will not transfer to Texas. 

Dental Assistant Qualification Criteria:

If you would like to obtain an optional Texas certification to monitor the administration of nitrous oxide, you must successfully complete one of the following SBDE-approved courses of instruction listed below.

Note:  There are no Continuing Education requirements for maintaining this certificate at this time.
