The basic principles for prevention and treatment of medical emergencies apply to treating patients in all dental care practice settings. Dental professionals need to be prepared to identify high-risk patients, assess pertinent clinic signs and symptoms, and render effective stabilizing treatment until qualified medical assistance arrives. Whether you practice in a traditional setting or in a specialty practice, this course is designed to review basic principles of risk reduction, patient assessment, and treatment options for selected emergency situations. This course includes case based discussions and interactive tool kits to prepare practices for medical emergencies.
This workshop fulfills the dental office emergencies requirement for DA II status. This 6 hours total program meets the annual continuing education requirement in dental office medical emergencies for limited supervision hygienists per NCSBDE Rule 21 NCAC 16Z .0101 (a)(5) and (b)(1); and the biennial CE requirement for sedation dentists per NCSBDE 21 NCAC 16 Q.0501(e)(2)
