This four-hour course provides information on the recognition of common medical emergencies and emergency protocol including prevention, management and response in a dental office setting. You will learn to identify potential risks for emergencies reported in patient medical and dental histories. We will discuss recognition of symptoms, first aid treatment and possible outcomes for patients in emergency situations. This course meets the guidelines as outlined in the statutes of the Ohio Dental Practice Act required for a dental hygienist, dental assistant, and expanded function dental auxiliary to practice when the dentist is not physically present in the office. Registration will end one week prior to the class start date. Cancellation of courses with less than the minimum number of students will be at the discretion of the department chair.
NOTE: This course typically runs every semester. If there aren’t any courses available at this time, please check this page again in the near future. For more information, please contact Elise Moore at 330-494-6170 ext 4887.
