A CRISIS SITUATION can—and likely will—occur at some time in your practice.
Many potential medical emergencies can be prevented. Gain a comprehensive command of the essential knowledge and skills needed to handle a life threatening medical crisis.
There are more medically compromised patients coming to our offices than ever before. Acquire “up to the minute” actions for dealing with a medical emergency while challenging preconceived or outdated ideas. Daniel Pompa, DDS - Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, ADA Consultant and ADA Seminar Series Speaker discusses the prevention, preparation, recognition and management of medical emergencies. Delivered in an interactive, high energy, multi-media presentation. A step-by-step medical approach using basic physical diagnostic methods is reviewed, giving the attendee a clear understanding of these medical findings. We will also review the legal and moral obligations that are presented during a medical crisis.
We will also explore the “Conversational History” and how it will uncover medical issues not revealed by the standard health history form. Additionally, the participant will learn simple, non-invasive critical tests that can reduce overall risks.
Description of Speaker:
After graduating from New York University College of Dentistry in 1978, Dr. Pompa completed a General Practice Residency at Long Island Jewish Hospital, followed by specialty training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Lincoln Hospital, New York Medical College. In 1982, he became a Fellow of The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and in 1992 a Fellow in The International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
Dr. Pompa has been a guest lecturer at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine and New York University College of Dentistry and is now a guest faculty at NYU College of Dentistry and the University of Florida College of Dentistry.
Dan has lectured extensively, including at the Academy of Osseointegration, the International Interdisciplinary Congress on Craniofacial and Skull Base Surgery, and has presented at the annual Greater New York Dental Meeting numerous times throughout the years. In November 2013, Dr. Pompa became a Seminar Series Speaker/Consultant for the American Dental Association. In 2015 Dr. Pompa became a Colgate Speaker.
Dr. Pompa is an author, having published in such journals as the Journal of the American Dental Association and Dentistry Today, where he has also been listed as a “Leader in Continuing Education.” In December 2013, he became an online author for the ADA with the course: “Apical Surgery: To Pull or Not to Pull.” Recently, in the Winter 2014 Journal of NYSAGD, Dr. Pompa published “Update on Basic Physical Diagnosis,” which summarizes many new innovations for a simple, chairside medical workup.
