  • Healthcare provider BLS will be presented with certification using on-line training through the American Heart Association and in-person Hands-on Skills Testing.
  • The armamentarium, instrumentation, and drugs needed for a comprehensive dental office emergency kit will be discussed.


On completion of this course, the dental professional will be able to:

  • Evaluate and risk-assess his/her dental patient.
  • Equip and prepare the office to manage untoward events.
  • Establish and maintain a well-designed office emergency kit.
  • Recognize the most common office emergencies and initiate their management.
  • Obtain Healthcare BLS certification.
