Safe Dental Care: Why Dental Continuing Education Should Include ACLS, BLS, or PALS.
Continuing your dental education through ACLS certification, BLS certification, and PALS gives you tools to help others in life-threatening situations at work and in social settings. BLS, or Basic Life Support, is CPR training required for all dentists and others employed at different dental clinics across the country. ACLS, or Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support, builds on BLS learning and emphasizes the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR during emergencies. PALS is Pediatric Advanced Life Support, a specialty certification focusing on life-saving care for infants and children.
Dental offices that perform oral or IV sedation or general anesthesia especially need to be aware of and trained in life-saving techniques involving severe cardiovascular crises. Dental professionals need to be trained in and prepared for conditions that put patients at risk, what to watch for, and warning signs. Whether your dental practice serves adults, families, or children, having employees trained and certified in these life-saving practices creates a safer work environment with more confident and calm employees and patients. Benefits also include insurance savings, marketability, and more.
Which dental professionals should seek certification?
Dental offices that perform oral or IV sedation or general anesthesia as part of their practice should seek certification for their employees. Dental professionals required to have up-to-date certification include:
- Dental hygienists
Certification lasts two years, at which point professionals need to recertify.
