Course Description

Much to our chagrin, medical emergencies occasionally arise in the dental office (without scheduling an appointment!).  This course is designed to help you be comfortable with the medications and equipment typically found in dental offices, so when an emergency arrives, you and your staff will be prepared.  This will be a really fun course… we’ll use dumb analogies to explain the drugs, and then do simulated emergencies using role-play in real time with real drugs so all participants get used to a repetitive protocol, learn how to open and draw up the medications, and use the equipment properly.  The role-playing is best when each office brings their staff so everyone gets the training.  Fun!

Course Objectives

As a result of attending this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand pharmacology of emergency medications.
  • Differentiate when to use which drugs and equipment in your kit.
  • Become more comfortable with managing emergency situations.
