Medical emergencies like heart attacks or airway obstructions can happen at any moment. Whether you’re at home, in public, or in your workplace, it pays to know how to handle these kinds of situations. Through Heartsavers, you can learn to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid as well as use automated external defibrillators (AED). I offer training courses for dentists and their staff, healthcare providers, and the public.
Courses We Offer
CPR and AED for General Public
For this course, training takes approximately two hours. Each participant will receive a two-year certification.
Adult and Child Topics Discussed
CPR, AED, and Emergency Medicine in Dentistry
When medical emergencies occur in the dental office, dentists are legally required to recognize and respond to them. They are expected to know how to promptly manage these situations and afford the patient his/her best chance at life. This is why I offer CPR training for dentists and their staff.
This course was developed by dentists for dentists and their staff. Many of the topics covered in this program are not included in the regular CPR training sessions. I will train dental care professionals to respond to emergencies in ways that may prevent the need for CPR. Training takes approximately three and a half hours. Each participant will receive a two-year certification and five CE credits.
Adult and Child Topics Discussed

Reviews From Clients
“In all of the instances in which I had to be recertified in CPR, I
cannot recall anyone else’s program that I attended other than one
provided by Michael Kaliroff. However, it’s more than just a CPR
recertification and it’s a program of significant importance to the
everyday practice of dentistry. As Michael states at the outset, many
dentists make the false assumption which is compromised of 8 words,
“it is never going to happen to me.” He is extremely passionate about
what he teaches and emphasizes the importance of preparedness and
presents management principles which are unique to a dental setting.
In recent times when we have needed someone to provide a program on
management of medical emergencies in the dental setting, I can
confidently turn to Michael Kaliroff to deliver his message to our
attendees and have them well prepared to ensure the well being of
their patients and staff.”

"Michael’s CPR, AED & Emergency Medicine in Dentistry is a must take
course for all Dentists and their staff. In addition to teaching the
proper techniques for performing CPR and using the AED, he spends an
ample amount of time on common medical emergencies that are not
covered in generic courses. Michael shares a philosophy with Dr.
Stanely Malamed in that if you are well enough prepared for an
emergency, the emergency ceases to exist. Great, Great Course!"

"Hello! My name is Steven Greco and I have been practicing general
dentistry for 30 years in Toms River, New Jersey.
It can be very stressful, as we all know, having to deal with
patients and all of their fears and concerns on a daily basis. Our
working field can often times be in fractions of millimeters in a
harsh, wet, dark environment.....
Medical emergencies in a dental office CAN and DO happen. If
we are not prepared for these incidents, the outcomes could be
Michael Kaliroff visits our office every year to keep our
skills sharp in order to properly handle an emergency in the dental
setting. It is MUCH more than simply knowing how many chest
compressions to give after a breath for CPR. It is MORE than a state
requirement every two years to satisfy regulations. After our yearly
meetings I always feel a little more adept at handling these issues;
it is load off my mind and allows me to focus more on what I enjoy :
my dentistry, my patients and their well-being !
Well done Michael !!"

"For well over a decade now we have hosted Michael Kaliroff annually in our office presenting his course titled "CPR, AED, and emergency medicine in dentistry". As one might expect this course provides extensive information and training in recognizing and avoiding medical emergencies in the dental office environment and out in the world in general. His hands-on approach to teaching proper CPR technique and demonstration of appropriate use of an AED in the management of patients who have undergone cardiac arrest is invaluable to any professional who not only wants to learn how to recognize and manage medical emergencies in the dental office but perhaps more importantly how to avoid them in the first place, this course is a must.
He demonstrates the proper use of the in-office oxygen and ambu bags as part of the team approach treatment protocol for patients with cardiac arrest. For those less experienced he demystifies the physiologic aspects of various medical emergencies likely to be encountered in the dental office, removes the "fear factor" many staff members have about "shocking" a patient to save a life. He covers management of CPR for adults and children and the management of a choking individual. Of particular value in my mind is his review of all of the equipment and supplies in the dental office, including emergency drug kit oxygen tanks, Ambu bags, pulse oximeter, and AED.
Unlike the generic CPR courses, Michael covers the particular challenges of administering CPR to a patient who is still in the dental•chair and not easily moved in the typically small dental treatment room. After completing his course your entire staff will understand the role they play in helping save lives by the prevention, early diagnosis, and emergency management of patients in the dental office. As someone who has experienced administering CPR and using an AED in a hospital emergency room and administering general anesthesia and IV sedation in the hospital and hospital OR, I can thoroughly vouch for the accuracy and perspective communicated in this course."
