Dr. Stanley Malamed will present “10 Minutes to Save a Life: Emergency Medicine in Dentistry” on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2020, at the Madison Marriott West in Middleton. The course is worth 6 CE credits and includes valuable information for the entire dental team.
A fun, two-hour networking social with a “Throwback Thursday” theme in honor of the WDA’s 150th anniversary will immediately follow the all-day CE. More than 20 tabletop exhibits with knowledgeable dental industry specialists will also be part of this year’s event.
Life-threatening emergencies can occur anytime, anywhere and to anyone. Such situations are somewhat more likely to occur within the confines of the dental office due to the increased level of stress that is so often present.
In this course, “10 Minutes to Save a Life: Emergency Medicine in Dentistry,” renowned speaker Dr. Stanley Malamed discusses the areas considered vital to a proper understanding of emergency medicine: prevention, preparation, and recognition and management.
The first session will include a discussion of preparation involving the office and staff and includes a thorough review of the office emergency kit (drugs and equipment). The second session will include the recognition and management of specific emergency situations and includes the management of unconsciousness, respiratory distress, seizures, drug-related emergencies and chest pain, including cardiac arrest and use of the AED.
This course is designed for all members of the dental office staff, not just the doctor and chairside personnel. Situations discussed here can happen outside of the dental environment as well as in the office. Everyone should be prepared!

I AM A LEADER DENTIST
“I was fortunate to have the time to attend both of the WDA CE events in both 2017 and 2018. The continuing education at both these events was outstanding. Dr Gordon Christensen in Stevens Point and Dr. Harold Heymann in Sheboygan provided excellent insight and invaluable information. After each of these CE courses there was a very nice social/networking event provided by the WDA. It was a great way to end the day, enjoying the entertainment and food and reconnecting with colleagues.”
