Sign up for DOCS Education's Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) recertification course and quickly gain the following advantages:

  • Targeted skills – Receive emergency training designed by dentists for use in a dental office setting
  • Essential emergency protocols – Learn the vital tools and skills to save a pediatric patient's life, including crucial airway management

Recertify with Top Instructors—in a Course Designed for Dentists

It's rarely sufficient to know the appropriate adult response during a medical crisis. Children present a unique challenge because their initial symptoms of distress can mirror nervous behavior. In addition, you'll likely be working from an incomplete medical history that may not contain vital details about allergies or other key conditions.

DOCS Education's 1-day PALS Recertification course provides the latest developments in pediatric emergency response procedures. You'll gain up-to-date information while also meeting recertification requirements.

Highly qualified and experienced instructors lead this hands-on pediatric course. You'll gain practical experience (using patient simulators) to prepare you to respond to a real-life emergency with the equipment common to most dental offices.

The course highlights include how to quickly determine the right medication doses for children.

Get Started

"It is particularly instructive to have a pharmacologist and a medical doctor lecturing on their areas of expertise."

– Dennis Myers, DDS   

It only takes one day to recertify. Sign up now, and take the first step.

  • 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.
