Healthcare provider basic life support training
Current and relevant BLS training for dental offices
Dr. Andrea Fonner is a certified instructor of Basic Life Support through the American Heart Association. Since she provides services in the dental setting, she has a unique perspective on the critical skills necessary for basic life support in your office. She is available to come work with you and your staff to ensure proper training for common medical emergencies in addition to Basic Life Support certification.
According to the Washington State Dental Quality Assurance Commission under WAC 246-817-720, dental staff providing direct patient care in an in-office or out-patient setting must hold a current and valid health care provider basic life support (BLS) certification. Dental staff providing direct patient care include: licensed dentists, licensed dental hygienists, licensed expanded function dental auxiliaries, certified dental anesthesia assistants, and registered dental assistants. New hired office staff providing direct patient care are required to obtain the required certification within forty-five days from the date hired. The American Heart Association recommends BLS training at least every two years.
The American Heart Association also has an online course available. Dr. Fonner can provide the practical training for final certification in your dental office.
Dr. Fonner can tailor any curriculum to fit the exact needs of your office. Call (206) 579-5163 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a free consultation or to set up a training appointment.
