Treating Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office

Life threatening medical emergencies may occur at any time in the dental office. The clinician discusses, in an interactive format, common office  emergencies seen in a dental office. Learn how to evaluate a patient to determine who to treat and who to refer for a medical consultation. Learn to recognize patients who have a tendency to cause medical emergencies and how to modify their treatment plan.
