The clinical assessment and treatment of dental patients of different ages and medical backgrounds is a daily service we provide for our community. Medical emergencies in a dental setting, however infrequent, can and will occur despite our most vigilant efforts. Dr. Alanes will review these emergencies, their etiologies, and teach the provider to quickly identify and manage them appropriately. Each member in the dental practice plays an essential role in this emergent setting and Dr. Alanes will focus on creating open communication, specific duties to be assigned, as well as how to effectively rehearse and clearly document the incident. Having a clear understanding of the emergencies and their management ensures the safety of the patient and bolsters necessary awareness for the treating dentist and their office staff.
