Medical Emergencies In The Dental Office: Why CPR Is Not Enough Medical emergencies occurring in the dental office can be stressful and frightening not only for the patient, but also the entire dental team. This course is designed for dentists and staff to develop strategies to prevent, identify and respond to medical problems with an emphasis placed on preparing the dental team in advance of a crisis to minimize its potential impact. An extensive handout is provided which can later be condensed into a chair-side manual with appropriate protocols to respond to most emergencies.

 

Dr. Sangrik is a 1979 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. In addition to maintaining a full-time general dental practice in Chardon, Ohio, he is founder of Interactive Dental Seminars.

He has also completed a research project assessing patient expectations of medical emergencies occurring in the dental office that has been published by the American Association of Dental Boards.
