Despite the best intentions, well-trained dentists and dental teams often miss known key steps during patient emergencies. This Quick Reference Checklist {(QRC) prevents those potentially career-killing mistakes with laminated algorithm cards for 24 critical patient emergencies.

This resource contains a set of cognitive aids (e.g., checklists) relevant for specific patient emergency that can occur in a dental office. The QRC is a clear and accessible reference emergency resource at the point of care – the dental operatory.


The QRC is modeled on the emergency section of the ‘Flight Manual’ used by pilots and aviation crews.
