Dear Doctor.,        
 

Dental organizations and hospitals are not the best way to obtain ACLS certification. The best way is to simultaneously train your office staff to support you while certifying TWO of you in ACLS and 50% off my travel expenses. Wow, a 2 for 1 offer for ACLS training, getting my staff trained to support me and I don't have to shut down my office for a prolonged period while getting the training (only a day and a evening)!

The solution is Advanced Dental Life Support (TM). It combines two (2) distinct workshops: Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), and Dental Office Emergency Preparedness (DOEP).

ACLS is a nationally recognized certification program from the American Heart Association while DOEP is a proprietary workshop that teaches the dentist’s office staff to assist him when employing ACLS-level resuscitation equipment to manage office emergencies.

Luckily much of each workshop’s lectures and most all of the simulated emergency-participation overlap for both workshops. Although each workshop is independent of the other, combining them through solo and group lectures and simulated emergencies into a 1.5 day seminar, allows the Dentist and office staff to utilize an ACLS team approach to respond to and manage in-office dental and medical emergencies. Emergencies require that everyone, not just the Dentist, know the overall picture and each has received specialized training in their particular role.

Although the Dentist, after successful completion will be awarded ACLS certification from the American Heart Association, each staff member will be taught to act with others as a unit….an Emergency Response Team (ERT). With the Dentist as team leader, each person will be cross-trained so that they can play any member of the team: CPR compressor, Ventilator, Recorder, Defibrillator, or Medication specialist. Training emphasis will be one-third on cognition and two-thirds on hands-on psychomotor skills through dental and medical emergency simulations.

Staff will be taught to: a) recognize different symptoms of dental emergencies, b) use a systems approach to call for help, c) retrieve the necessary resuscitation equipment, d) correctly position the AED and perform a shock if necessary, e) use teamwork to lift the patient to position a CPR board, f) place a oropharyngeal airway and ventilate with 100% oxygen by Ambu bag, g) assist the Dentist in placing an intravenous or intraosseous lifeline, h) assist in medication decision, I) assemble medication for administration, and j) record all information for EMS.

In summary, although ACLS certification for the Dentist is the backbone of the course, the combination of both ACLS and DOEP stresses that staff have to be trained as well to support the Dentist in managing emergencies in the office. Whew!Read more...

 
David Doernbach, Ed.D., our renown medical-dental educator with 36 years ACLS teaching experience , uses primarily dental emergencies such as larygospasm, bronchospasm, and allergic reactions (to name a few) as the origins for these simulations.  What good are primarily cardiac simulations going to do for a dentist?  Dr. Dave keeps it real and helpful using simulated emergencies that the dentist might actually experience. Read more...

The price for me to come to your office:  
   
$2950 + my travel expenses travel explained.... Well let's think about it. If you had been going to the dental organization ACLS course (one of 70+ students), you would have paid $1495 tuition, paid your own expenses, had to shut down your practice for 1-3 days, but not received any specific benefit to your practice other than an ACLS card.

The charge for my visit would result in a smaller per-student tuition, certify two ACLS providers, provide emergency support training for ALL of the front and back office staff, prepare your office for emergencies through the Advanced Dental Life Support® System train your employees in Dental Office Emergency Preparedness, AND do it all at your office with your own personal instructor, with your own staff, and with your own equipment. Then add 10% off any equipment purchases, spreading the entire cost (tuition and expenses included) over three months; I'm sorry but I think my visit experience tops that of just getting the ACLS card. Just call Ms. Donna at 800-844-2257 or email me today. Read more....
