Edgewood Dental Office Completes Annual CPR Training

EDGEWOOD, KY--(Marketwired - September 23, 2015) - Staff members at Edgewood Dental Care, a comprehensive dental office that offers family dentistry, recently completed their annual CPR training course to be recertified in the life-saving techniques.

The Edgewood Dental Care clinical and administrative staff completed the CPR and emergency training in August. The training included simulated CPR training, and the instructors helped the dental staff work through a number of emergency scenarios.

“We feel it is important for all of our staff to be updated on CPR and be prepared for any emergency needs that our patients should have,” said Dr. Kevin McMahon of Edgewood Dental Care. “Any time we train together as a team, it helps us provide better unified care for our patients.”

Edgewood Dental Care seeks out the training every year. Dr. McMahon said the trainers continue finding new ways to teach CPR tactics and provide the latest information in life-saving methods for the entire staff.

During each annual training, the staff of Edgewood Dental Care works individually and collectively to learn life-saving methods and best CPR practices. Dr. McMahon said patients can take comfort knowing that the practice has received training to handle any number of medical emergencies.

“This is one of the most important training events of the year because it gives us the ability to save someone’s life if an emergency arises,” Dr. McMahon said.

Edgewood Dental Care offers general dentistry, restorative dentistry, sedation dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, gum disease treatment, dental implants, wisdom tooth removal, root canals and full orthodontics -- including traditional braces and Invisalign.

The practice uses cone beam computed tomography to take 3-D images of patients’ mouths, oral cavity, jawbone and neck; intraoral cameras to take high-resolution images of patients’ teeth for education and diagnosis; CEREC technology to provide patients same-day crowns; LANAP laser technology to treat gum disease; IV sedation to treat fearful patients or patients in need of multiple dental treatments in one visit; and The Wand to deliver pain-free injections.

Edgewood Dental Care provides free coffee, drinks and healthy snacks to its patients and has amenities that will help keep patients comfortable during treatment.

Dr. McMahon uses dental implants in his practice to replace missing teeth or to stabilize dentures. He also provides bone grafting for patients who have had their jawbone deteriorate with the loss of their teeth. In July, Dr. McMahon was named a Diplomate of the renowned International Dental Implant Association. This recognition is awarded to dentists who have completed hundreds of hours of continuing education in dental implant training.

Dr. McMahon earned his undergraduate and dental degrees from the University of Kentucky and began Edgewood Dental Care in 1986. Dr. McMahon takes more than 100 hours of continuing education every year to offer his patients the highest quality of dentistry. Dr. McMahon runs Edgewood Dental Care alongside Drs. Daryl Peak, D.G. Gutman and Troy Kramer.
