This course is designed for dentists, hygienists and assistants.
This unique, exclusive, and challenging program provides a hands-on clinical simulation experience that addresses the proper assessment and management of patient complications associated with dental sedation. This course will explore simulations for the dentist as a method to improve patient safety and outcomes. A variety of routine to complex cases will be presented where you will be engaged interactively to determine critical decisions and therapies for those patients. Most importantly, participants will be given the opportunity to participate and demonstrate the appropriate patient management with a variety of hands-on simulations.
- Identify current trends and common causes of complications of the sedated dental patient
- Evaluate your own readiness to respond to complications and emergencies
- Prepare staff for their involvement to assist in recognizing and treating emergencies
- Implement frequent and effective In-Situ simulations for emergency preparedness.
