Emergency Medical Education for Dentistry
This course was developed specifically for dental providers. Dental professionals carry out their duties to provide excellent dental care. When a medical emergency presents itself, you are faced with having to make rapid decisions you are not accustomed to, all while your natural fight-or-flight response impairs cognitive processes. Medical emergencies can, and do, present in the dental setting. While prevention is key, you need the knowledge to respond when it happens. Emergency Medical Education for Dentistry (EMED) provides instruction about emergencies in a way that participants learn to confidently recognize a problem, understand what they encounter, and effective steps to manage the event. Mr. Cooper delivers this information in a way that is applicable to all staff, not just the dentist. The focus is on a TEAM approach and preparing everyone involved to perform tasks appropriate for their role. This fun and engaging class will empower you with the knowledge & skills to get prepared for a medical crisis – not just fill in CE time.
