Course Description

This popular course will afford the entire dental team the opportunity to review and enhance basic skills in the supportive treatment of medical emergencies occurring in the dental office. How do we help prevent a medical emergency? How do we prepare our office and our team? What do we need in our medical emergency kit? How do we recognize and treat a medical emergency? These questions will be answered in an easy to understand way, using humor to illustrate many of the points. Emphasis will be given to actual emergency situations and dental team response. (4 hours CE credit)

Infectious Diseases

This course will provide reviews of selected infectious diseases of importance to the entire dental team. Can this topic be made interesting? The answer is a clear yes. Learn some of the stories behind the diseases and some practical information you are unlikely to have heard elsewhere. You’ll learn a lot and have a bit of fun along the way. This is not your typical OSHA lecture. (4 hours CE credit)
