Medical emergencies in the dental office are fortunately a rare occurrence, but they can be very dangerous. Because they are rare, some practitioners are not ready to act appropriately when they occur. This evening will offer a case-based approach to common medical emergencies with what happened, why it happened and what could have or should have been done to prevent it.

Learning Outcomes
How to remain calm and appropriate when things go wrong
