TUESDAY, APRIL 9 from 6 to 8 p.m.


Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office | Dr. Sam McKenna

at Richland Country Club

A medical emergency in the dental office is an unexpected event. Dentists should be familiar with the prevention, diagnosis, and management of common emergencies and train their staff so that each person knows what to do and can act promptly. Dr. McKenna will discuss measures to prepare the dental office for a medical emergency. Management of specific medical emergencies will be reviewed.


Sam McKenna, D.D.S., M.D. completed his medical degree and residency at Vanderbilt after earning his D.D.S. at UCLA. He has served Vanderbilt as a faculty member, former director of the Oral Surgery Residency, and as professor and chair of the department. He has a hospital-based practice that encompasses the full-scope of clinical practice including dentoalveolar surgery, management of maxillofacial trauma, orthognathic surgery, and management of oral and maxillofacial pathology, cleft deformities, and all facets of oral and maxillofacial reconstruction.
