Inspiring Faculty

Individually, the members of the DOCS Education faculty who’ll serve as the primary instructors are master practitioners.

Collectively, however, the DOCS Education faculty rise to a league of their own. As a team, the DOCS faculty are unequaled for their knowledge, experience, teaching talents, and – most importantly – effectiveness.

In short, they preach what they practice.

Dentists and team members will leave immediately ready to implement what they’ve learned.

 

Since 1999, DOCS Education courses have earned the distinction of featuring America’s Best Dental Faculty, led by Dr. Anthony S. Feck, Dean of Faculty. DOCS instructors are renowned for their interactive, hands-on teaching pedagogy that makes classes memorable, actionable, and enjoyable.

You’ll quickly understand why our 25,000-course alumni consistently rank our faculty their favorite instructors ever.

In the world of comic books, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Green Lantern comprise the core of the Justice League – superheroes who join forces to save the world from evildoers. Their sum is greater than their parts.

In the real world, we’ll bring together an assembly of awe-inspiring educators – we think of them as, “The Dental League” – who partner with you and your team members to eradicate patient fear, anxiety, pain, and the scourge of neglected oral health.

Safety Statement

You Don’t Know If You Don’t Ask: Safety Starts with a Comprehensive Medical History

Enhancing Sedation Safety: Ensuring safety during sedation necessitates a thorough assessment of the patient's medical history and a detailed review of all medications being taken. It is essential to include the date of the patient's most recent medical examination as part of this assessment. If a patient has not consulted their primary healthcare provider within a specified timeframe, referring them for a medical evaluation before scheduling any sedation procedures is advisable. The frequency of medical follow-ups should be customized based on the patient's age and the complexity of their health issues. This is particularly crucial for patients with complex medical conditions, who may require more frequent assessments. Furthermore, a comprehensive evaluation should also include a detailed inventory of all prescribed and over-the-counter medications, as well as any nutraceuticals and supplements the patient may be using. This is essential to establish a comprehensive safety protocol.
