Not Another Emergency: Triaging and Treating Dental Emergencies in Children

Friday, April 12

2 - 5 PM

3 CDE Credits – DDS, DH, DA, AUX


We will review the most common dental emergencies and their treatment in children, including triaging. You'll learn rapid neurological assessment, treatment and follow-up protocols for not only what you think is an emergency, but more importantly, what parents think is an emergency. A look at common oral pathology will also be included.

This session will enable participants to:
- Be able to triage dental emergencies through the use of cell phones and the internet.
- Learn to prepare your office for the onslaught of emergencies Monday morning and Friday afternoon.
- Develop protocols for quick treatment and stabilization.
- Learn what's normal and what’s not.
