1 C LINIC O RIENTATION Aka Everything we learned the hard way

2 C LINIC PROTOCOL Huddle Rules: Starts at 8am Variances for tardiness You must be in huddle unless you are on rotation If you are on rotation in the morning but have a patient in the afternoon you must put a check next to your name that you have verified that what you are doing on the schedule is correct


4 C LINIC PROTOCOL Infection Control Protocol After seeing patient clean operatory and spray wipe spray Put chair to upward position with rheostat on chair on paper towel Do NOT leave the operatory with gloves on Do NOT enter supply room with gown on Have red bag taped to assistant table and for items soiled with blood (red bag goes in red biohazard boxes) All sharps go in sharps container Wash hands properly when you enter the operatory before you put gloves on



7 C LINIC PROTOCOL Have your name plate at your station for the duration of the appointment Always have a napkin on your patient even if youre just looking real quick Always have goggles on your patient Do not bring a patient into the clinic without faculty present

8 C LINIC PROTOCOL If you are in your station with a patient you are required to be wearing a gown even if you are only at the computer taking a medical history Be done with procedure by 11am and 4pm to have time for chart notes, making follow-up appointments and end checks Know the procedures to follow should there be an emergency with your patient Know where the aid kits, the AED, and the oxygen are in our clinic

9 S OME TIPS : Use the plastic boxes at your stations to gather supplies before the appointment and only take out what you need to avoid wasting supplies Become familiar with the different products we use in the clinic (for example types of composites and when to use each)(Dont be afraid to ask for the instructions the product comes with) When you put the patient in the chair make sure the headrest is adjusted properly Assist each other whenever possible Do NOT schedule a patient if they have not paid their bill

10 STERILIZATION TIPS : If something in your kit is missing or broken, tell sterilization Extra 330 burs can be found in our supply room (the ones in the kits are often dull) Ask for an operative setup as opposed to tray Dont check out more than one handpiece Leaving scalpel, needle, glass or other sharps on trays given to sterilization can result in a variance

31 M EDICAL C ONSULT E XAMPLE 1 Dear Dr. Valdez: Jane Smith, an 84 yo female who is a patient of your practice, came to my dental office in need of dental extractions of teeth #19, 20 due to severe bone loss due to periodontal disease. She has a medical history significant for atrial fibrillation for which she takes coumadin, diabetes for which she takes glucophage and metformin, and congestive heart failure. I anticipate the dental extractions to be simple with minimal blood loss and plan to place one suture to help with closure and hemostasis. I plan to check her INR the day before the scheduled extractions and will proceed with extractions if the INR is less than 3. Please advise within the next week if you have other recommendations in the management of her medical conditions in light of the planned dental extractions, most specifically her cardiovascular status. Sincerely, Tom Johnson, D.M.D.

32 M EDICAL C ONSULT E XAMPLE 2 Patient presented with: Hypertension, back pain, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and COPD. Reports being on Methylprednisolone 80 mg and a lidoderm patch. The patient requires the following dental treatment: Full mouth extractions, aveolplasty, and Denture placement. This will involve the use of lidocaine and all extractions and aveoloplasty will be preformed simultaneously. Please evaluate the patient for: Does the patient need to be put on an increased steroid dosage due to current methylprednisolone use? Is there any complications due to methylprenisolone or lidoderm patch use that prohibit this dental treatment.? Is the patients hypertension, biploar disorder, schizophrenia, and COPD well controlled with medication? Is there any other information that we should be aware of before treating this patient? Please respond below with comments, sign, and return.
