Emergency and Disaster Response

The School of Dentistry has a protocol for the management of medical-dental emergencies and disaster response that provides guidance and specific steps to be followed by faculty, residents, students and staff in all emergency situations. In general, all faculty and staff involved in patient care shall be certified in Basic Cardiac Life Support (BCLS), and therefore possess the skills necessary to initiate emergency care.  Students and faculty are responsible for managing emergencies until relieved by our emergency response personnel.
