ADA Business Resources endorses provider of dental emergency medical kits

June 19, 2017
ADA Business Resources in June announced HealthFirst as its exclusive endorsed provider of dental emergency medical kits for ADA members.

With this endorsement, ADA members may take advantage of special discounts on HealthFirst emergency medical kits.

An emergency medical kit contains up-to-date medications and is considered a key element of patient safety and emergency preparedness in dental offices, according to the ADA.

HealthFirst has provided emergency medical kits for more than four decades to dentists across the United States. The company currently tracks and automatically replenishes expired emergency medications for more than 40,000 dental offices.

Dentists can speak with a HealthFirst compliance counselor who will help them assess the needs of their practice and the type of kit that will help keep them prepared for a medical emergency and compliant with their state and local regulations.

"We have spoken with a lot of dental offices who have relied on our kits to manage medical emergencies," said Dr. Don Cohen, HealthFirst chief clinical officer. "Recent stories have included treating patients with anaphylaxis and low blood sugar as well as addressing an office staff member's severe allergic reaction. Medical emergencies really do happen in dental practices."

"ADA Business Resources is delighted to endorse HealthFirst's emergency medical kits, which are already the market leader in dentistry," said Deborah Doherty, managing director of ADA Business Resources.  "We have already endorsed HealthFirst for their amalgam recovery solution and their sharps and medical waste mailback disposal services. With today's announcement, ADA members have the opportunity to save on three leading solutions from HealthFirst that help ensure patient safety and practice compliance."

The ADA Business Resources' endorsement provides exclusive discounts to ADA members on HealthFirst emergency medical kits of at least 10 percent, and a special introductory offer is available through July 31. To take advantage of these discounts and special endorsement launch offers, ADA members may contact a HealthFirst compliance counselor at 1-888-963-6787 or
