Overview

We are dedicated to providing easy to use tools for the thriving dental practice. Being there ourselves, we realize how difficult it is to accomplish patient care, administration and staff education simultaneously. By providing tools and resources, our team at Dental Practice Resource Group strives to lift the burden of fitting it all into an already busy practice.
This manual will provide both the templates that we use in all our operatories as well as discussion of some actual cases we have been involved with and those our medical director and consultant (M.D.) has been involved in over the last 17 years. Several of our staff have come to us from large multi-specialty practices in urban areas. The cases are both interesting and anxiety provoking. The goal of this manual is to instill a sense of comfort that your office can successfully manage the first few minutes of any medical emergency
The overriding key in any medical emergency is to remain in control of yourself and your team. Take a deep breath, have a staff member call 911 and never leave the patient unattended during an emergency situation.
This guide is just a small portion of the resources and training offered by Dental Practice Resource Group. Realize that sampling just a portion will not provide the whole flavor or experience, but will build confidence and knowledge when dealing with medical emergencies. Our M.D. Consultant has provided individual office training seminars that provides hands on experience utilizing mannequins, emergency equipment as outlined in this manual and practiced handling real scenarios.
We encourage your staff to read through the flow sheets and case scenarios several times. The goal of this manual is to provide both familiarity and insight into the process of managing the initial few moments of any medical emergency.
These templates (flow sheets) continue to serve our office and staff well and we believe they are the perfect tool to laminate and keep in every operatory. Reviewing them periodically at staff meetings is an easy way to keep everyone up to date. We suggest a minimum of biannual training refreshers sessions.
The list within is a suggestion as to what our practice group has found to be the minimum necessary equipment and supplies for a medical emergency kit. The templates below list common signs and symptoms but are not intended to be an exhaustive list of all possible presentations.
If interested in the video series that accompanies this guide, please contact us. We are working on a format to deliver those and allow easier access with the help of digital technology and file sharing.

Meet the Author

Dental Practice Resource Group was formed with the sole mission of helping busy dental practices solve their practice related issues. Our team members have been practicing and collaborating on various projects over the last two decades and have come under the same umbrella a few years ago. We are very excited to have merged with Singularis Media Group and now have expanded our services. We have been using Singularis Media Group’s web services for SEO, link building and video marketing for the last two years so the partnership was the next logical progression.
As busy clinicians it is very difficult to find the time to develop policies and procedures from scratch. Why reinvent the wheel? Dentistry at its core is the same wherever it is practiced; however, the nuances of practice management and marketing are what set apart the most successful dentists.
Our mission was to create a series of resources on a wide variety of topics specific to the dental office. Over the last year, we have been refining these resources and making them available to our fellow colleagues in the dental industry. We strive to make these resources valuable yet clean and simple. We have been told that their format allows for easy modification and customization based on the dental practice that utilizes them. With that in mind, we are making all of our resources available in a variety of formats (PDF, eBook, MS Word, RTF). Several of these formats lend for modification and can be tailored to any dental practice needs.
Our team is fortunate to have the input of a physician who shares a unique perspective on the issues at the crossroads of both dentistry and medicine. For that reason, we believe that our resources have a distinct advantage over what is otherwise available. Our business model is centered around a dental office and all of these resources and web-based strategies have been implemented in our own practice. Our team consists of dedicated health professionals who happen to be passionate about dental marketing and education.
Being a dentist and transforming lives (and smiles) has never been more rewarding. We know you will find value in this resource. Visit our website and see what else we have to offer.
