Dr. Ernest Luce

Dr. Ernie Luce completed dental school at the University of Texas Health Science Center, Dental Branch in Houston in 1985, followed by a General Practice Residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 1986. Since then, he has held an appointment in the Department of General Dentistry at the dental school in San Antonio. Over the past 20 years, his professional interests have become quite focused on the teaching of management of medically compromised patients in the dental office, and the safe delivery of minimal and moderate sedation, both enteral and parenteral.

Ernie is married to Joan, also a general dentist, and they have 2 children, in high school.

  • Pertinent minimal sedation rules in Nebraska

  • Proper drug selection and include a review of pharmacologic principles for minimal sedation
  • Monitoring techniques including advantages and disadvantages of each
  • Proper technique including discharge of the sedation patient
  • Anticipation and management of sedation emergencies
