Lecture Course for the Entire Dental Team:
Prevention and Management of
Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office

Ernest E. Valdez, D.D.S.

According to a published study, a dentist and staff, on average, will manage a medical emergency once every 1.4 years. The same study reports that cardiac arrest in a dental office may occur once every 130 years. It appears that medical emergencies occur infrequently in the dental office. It is for this very reason that it is easy for dentists and staff to forget simple medical emergency prevention and management techniques and systems. In a productive dental practice, medical emergency equipment may become dusty, emergency medications may expire, portable oxygen tanks become empty, emergency management systems are forgotten.

ERNEST E. VALDEZ, D.D.S.,received his DDS degree from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, School of Dentistry in 1993. He pursued a two year General Practice Residency at UTHSCSA which he completed in 2001. Dr. Valdez has served as co-investigator of numerous research projects. He has published articles in the Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, British Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, and the Journal of Periodontal Research.
