“Richard is without doubt the leader in Inhalaton Sedation training
in general dental practice in the UK with over 30 years of study and
experience in this field.
He is an extremely pleasant and able communicator who clearly loves his subject and has held an unswerving belief in the great value of this very safe light sedation to help patients overcome their anxieties about dental treatment.
His training course covers the subject fully and practically and very successful live demonstrations on really anxious patients prove the value of using these skills,
I have no hesitation in highly recommending Richard and his Conscious Sedation course to all members of the dental profession who truelly care for their patients wellbeing.

From Dr. Ashley Davenport, Practice Owner, Balsall Common Dental Practice, in their own words
We attended your Relative Analgesia course in December 2006.
I am writing to say a big thank you to you and your team for making the day so interesting and enjoyable.
I am particularly grateful to you for all your help and advice regarding the installation and set up of the equipment. We gained a great deal of knowledge about Inhalation Sedation and have since started offering Relative Analgesia to our own patients.
We have been using Inhalation Sedation in our practice for 3 months now and have found it a great help to our patients.
Thanks again, we couldn't have done it without your help!

Here are some comments received today from delegates who attended one of my courses earlier in 2011
“ ..you have shown me that sedation and gentle painless dentistry is more of a practice builder than anything else. I have employed this in my daily practice” ..
” I find being able to treat someone that hasn't been able to visit the dentist due to fear much more inspirational than reading the 1000th article about veneers and bleaching we find in every journal! “
Dr Uzman al Haq.
"I really enjoyed the course and I am seeing not only children but also adult patients under RA now. You might remember me, I am a paediatric dentist."
and in reply a request for her vote in the 2011 Private Dentistry Elite 20 awards she said "You have my vote already!"
Makbule Ogretme (Mac).
I Hope everything is going well in your surgery and about your excellent RA courses. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. you in any way.
Kind regards and best wishes to you and your wife

I am most grateful to Alun Rees, Dentist and Professional Business Coach for his unsolicited and indeed unexpected testimonial published in his e-zine on Thursday May 28th. :
"Richard Charon, the RA Coach, has run his RA courses in Newbury and beyond for many years and has glowing testimonials from both patients and course students that are testament to his expertise as a cllinician and teacher. In recent months Richard has embraced Web 2.0 in a big way so that there is an RA Coach Facebook page, a blog and regular Twitter updates from the man who is a model in finding a niche. His next course in June is fully subscribed but the one after in July has a few spaces free. You'll possibly change the way that you work for ever."

Facial Aesthetics - A New Avenue?
Tonight I received the following Message from Dr. Peter Mounce, which shows great promise for using RA in Facial Aesthetic work undertaken by dentists:
"We are all well and getting into RA.
Several cases completed now with good to excellent results.
2 mobile machines in operation working well with one portable scavenger unit - not clashed on usage yet.
Most remarkable cases to date :
20 external facial injections of Restylane without dental anaesthesia (no infra orbital and mental blocks) just 60:40 RA and accepted well by patients who reported 1-2 on pain scale of 1-10
and who where fully functioning at the conclusion - no 4 hr local to wear off!
Our best wishes to you and your team from the Smile Team and me. "
