Monroe Dentist Undergoes Training in Lifesaving Rescue Techniques

MONROE, LA--(Marketwired - September 23, 2015) - A Monroe dentist and his staff recently completed an all-day training course on advanced cardiac life support in order to be trained for any medical emergency.

Dr. David Finley, who operates the dental practice Bayou Dental Group, had his staff undergo the annual training on Aug. 14. As a dental professional, Dr. Finley requires his staff to stay current with life-saving procedures like CPR.

"We don’t anticipate having to use CPR or any other emergency life-saving procedures, but this training will ensure our patients that my staff is well-prepared and able to handle any medical circumstance that might arise in the office," Dr. Finley said.

Dr. Dave Doernbach visits Bayou Dental Group every year to refresh the staff on CPR training. Dr. Doernbach provides the staff with mock incidents and then helps them determine the necessary treatment for every different scenario.

Dr. Finley said Dr. Doernbach brings the latest tools and information in life-saving tactics to properly train every member of Bayou Dental Group.

"Our staff always enjoys this because it teaches us how to be ready for any emergencies, and it’s an opportunity to build upon our medical knowledge," Dr. Finley said.

Bayou Dental Group offers preventive dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, pediatrics, endodontics, sedation dentistry and dental implant surgery. The dental practice provides some of the best cosmetic dentistry in the Monroe area, as well as root canals and state-of-the-art dental implants. Dr. Finley uses cone beam imaging technology for implant placement.

Dr. Finley has taken hundreds of hours in continuing education and is the 61st Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry. There are fewer than 30 dentists in the world who hold both fellowships. He has been voted as one of America’s Top Dentists by the Consumer Research Council of America every year since 2003.

Dr. Finley’s connection to Monroe and the surrounding community stretches back to his years growing up there. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Northeast Louisiana University and then graduated from the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in 1985. He is one of the first dentists in Louisiana to be certified in laser treatment by the World Clinical Laser Institute.

Dr. Finley views dentistry as an art and is the only dentist to have earned medals five years in a row at the annual American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry smile gallery competition. He has published cases in the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry and has written articles for the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry and for the publication of the Louisiana Academy of General Dentistry.
