I had the pleasure of attending Mark Castle’s Medical Emergency Course… It was succinct, informative and very well presented. I take these courses whenever they are convenient in my busy schedule. You can’t learn these important protocols too many times. Mark had some excellent flow charts and other aids to help keep the crucial information at your fingertips.

Consider visiting our dental emergency kit facebook page for more information about dentist office medical emergency. The dental emergency supplies and resources here help provide the dentist and team, including dental assistants, dental hygienists, front desk workers, plus physician teams and doctors, with written protocols and vital practice policies for medical emergency preparedness.
The workbook and office policy manual have given our dental team invaluable insights into organizing our entire dental office to handle potential medical emergencies. We now feel equipped and confident to provide the necessary care for our patients if they should have a medical emergency in our setting. Thanks for your help.

There are many reasons to consider our dental office medical emergency kits. For more information about improving care through early recognition and diagnosis for oral cancer and medical emergencies in dentistry, check out some of the articles on our medical resources for dentists google page.
No dental office in America should be without Dr. Mark Castles Dental Office Emergency kit and entire program of “Treating and Avoiding Dental Office Emergencies!”
In addition, believe me, there is nothing else in the marketplace like the Oral Cancer Exam and DVD presentation! Others talk about post diagnosis protocols, but none address DIAGNOSIS like this program does.
– says Dr. Woody Oakes Author of the “Profitable Dentist Newsletter” and a prominent speaker and founder with the acclaimed “Excellence in Dentistry” seminar series.
Please visit our medical emergency in dental facebook page for more resources about avoiding costly legal settlements because medical emergency protocols and oral cancer protocols have not been established. In addition, information and resources are available that give “Peace of Mind” for all dental care providers by increasing the “standard of care” that your team delivers to patients.
I highly recommend this video. Statistics from the ADA reveal the fact that one out of every six dentists will be involved in some type of legal entanglement. It is your responsibility, as a dentist, to review and update your patients medical history at each dental appointment.
If this protocol was followed in every dental office, many medical emergency incidents and legal settlements could be avoided.
In addition, failure to detect oral cancer is the number one area where dentists and hygienists can exceed their dental malpractice coverage limits. Practicing the techniques depicted in the Oral Cancer Exam video will greatly reduce your risk and could help “you save and improve the quality of someone’s life“.
The video production titled “Dental Office Emergencies: Treatment and Avoidance”, is an ideal reference for the entire dental team. This training video includes the most common dental office emergencies with discussion and simulation exercises. It is an effective teaching tool for both the new and the seasoned dental health practitioner.

My husband lost his battle with tongue cancer June 28, 2006 at the very young of age of 43. He left behind and son and daughter. He had been complaining the throat irritation, ear pain and was constantly clearing his throat for a duration of about 18 months. Doctors ignored his complaints and at my insistance asked for a referral from his GP to see an ENT. ENT doctor told him he was getting too much water in his ear and suggested ear plugs in the shower. His dentist never performed an oral cancer examination. I just happened to log onto your website, and was very pleased to learn that someone in the medical community takes this oral cancer disease very seriously.
