Keep current with the latest in emergency response

Being ready to handle a medical emergency requires practice. Keep your certification and your skills current.

Taking the Dental Advanced Life Support (DALS®) Recertification course gives you the following advantages:

  • Highly-focused training – Get emergency response training that is designed by dentists for a dental office setting
  • Essential emergency preparation – Learn vital medical knowledge and applications to save a patient's life
  • Peace of mind – Create an emergency medical plan for your office, and rest easy knowing that you're prepared
  • Hands-on training – Receive practical training to handle common emergency scenarios

Gain Practical Experience that Supports Your Knowledge

The DALS® Recertification course provides updated information on procedures and advances in emergency response while meeting your recertification needs. Our hands-on course is specifically designed for dental offices, which means we'll focus on how to handle a crisis using the staff and equipment you have on hand.

You'll also review the critical skills needed to respond to respiratory failure, airway obstruction, cardiac problems and anaphylaxis. Using patient simulators, you'll get practical experience that can prepare you for a real life emergency.

DALS® instructors are certified and trained emergency professionals.

  • Why should I bring my team?

    "I brought some of the team with me, including two hygienists and our assistant manager—all of whom are extremely reluctant to try new things. I sat at lunch today listening with amazement as they told me what we need to do to implement this in our practice! Your enthusiasm is infectious, and I will be sending the rest of the team to this course!" - Karen Harriman, DDS DOCS Education considers the dental team a vital part of good patient care and urges every dentist to bring at least one staff member to courses. States differ in their sedation regulations. Visit SedationRegulations.com to learn more.
