Dentist Surgery First Aid

Basic Life Support & CPR for Dental Professionals

The Resuscitation Council (UK) recommends that: “Staff should undergo regular training in the management of medical emergencies to a level appropriate to their expected clinical responsibilities.” ‘Standards for Clinical Practice and Training for Dental Practitioners and Dental Care Professionals in Dental Practice’ were issued by the Resuscitation Council UK in July 2006.

Our 2-3 hour course for dentist practices covers the requirements listed above. Courses are designed for both clinical and non-clinical staff. We use the most up to date Resuscitation Council guidelines on our courses.

The course content can be tailored to suit your particular requirements. However it usually includes dealing with collapse, airway management, CPR, choking and common medical emergencies.

The guidance state: Medical emergencies can happen at any time in dental practice.  If you employ, manage or lead a team, you should make sure that:

  • There are arrangements for at least two people to be available to deal with medical emergencies when treatment is planned to take place.
  • All members of staff, not just the registered team members, know their role if a patient collapses or there is another kind of medical emergency.
  • All members of staff who might be involved in dealing with a medical emergency are trained and prepared to deal with such an emergency at any time, and practice together regularly in a simulated emergency so they know exactly what to do.

We meet the HSE standards for ‘Due Diligence‘ for first aid providers.

We will run the course at your venue for group sizes of 3-12 people. Call us on 0333 4330 731 (free to mobile and landlines callers) or mobile 07585 723763 or email at for more information or to book
