Course Description:

Stay Current with the Latest in Emergency Response

Maintain your Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) certification and be prepared to handle a medical emergency in your dental practice.  Jim Bovia, EMT and DOCS faculty member explains briefly what’s offered in this valuable recertification training:

Taking the American Heart Association (AHA) ACLS Recertification course provides the following advantages:

  • Highly-focused training – Get emergency response training that is designed by dentists for a dental office setting
  • Essential emergency preparation – Learn vital medical knowledge and applications to save a patient's life
  • Peace of mind – Create an emergency medical plan for your office, and rest easy knowing that you're prepared
  • Hands-on training – Receive practical, hands-on training to handle common emergency scenarios

Gain Practical Experience that Supports Your Knowledge

The AHA ACLS Recertification program for dentists offers updated information on procedures and advances in emergency response while meeting your recertification needs. Our hands-on course is specifically designed for dental offices, which means we'll focus on how to handle a crisis using the staff and equipment you have on hand.

You'll also review the critical skills needed to respond to respiratory failure, airway obstruction, cardiac problems, and anaphylaxis. Using patient simulators, you'll get practical experience that can prepare you for a real-life emergency.

ACLS instructors are AHA certified and trained emergency professionals.

And as an added bonus, you'll get access to the MASTER THE NEW ADA ANTIBIOTIC GUIDELINES free with your registration.

 

 

Who Should Take this Course?

Often required by State Boards for sedation permits, this ACLS recertification will increase your confidence in the ability to handle medical emergencies in your office. While you may never be called upon to save a patient's life, you'll rest easier knowing that you and your team have an effective emergency plan and all the tools needed to respond to a patient in crisis.

This recertification course requires the attendee hold a current ACLS card. If you need the initial ACLS certification, we offer a 1-day course. Our team can also come to you for personal, in-office ACLS training. Contact a course advisor for more information.

"I brought some of the team with me, including two hygienists and our assistant manager—all of whom are extremely reluctant to try new things. I sat at lunch today listening with amazement as they told me what we need to do to implement this in our practice! Your enthusiasm is infectious, and I will be sending the rest of the team to this course!" - Karen Harriman, DDS DOCS Education considers the dental team a vital part of good patient care and urges every dentist to bring at least one staff member to courses.
