defibrillators for dental practicesThe General Dental Council require practices to have a readily available, fully maintained defibrillator on-site.

The nature of dental procedures, as well as the high footfall around surgeries, helped recognise the threat of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Surgeries require a plan for Cardiac emergencies and also, effective CPR training.

Installing a defibrillator enables responders to promptly deliver the treatment whilst increasing the chance of survival from 6% to 74%.

Does a Dental Practice need an automated external defibrillator (AED) on-site?

There are no legal requirements for Dental Practices to own a defibrillator. We recommend that every medical practice equips their environment with a unit to ensure the safety of their employees and patients.

Why is there a need for dental practices to install AEDs?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest can happen to anyone, in any place, at any time. Immediate intervention through the use of CPR and shock from a defibrillator increases survival rates from 6% up to 74%. Be prepared in the event of an emergency by installing a defibrillator in your practice to give the best chance of survival.

Is funding available for a defibrillator?

Some Councils run Defibrillator Grant schemes for public access defibrillators, this is dependent on the local council. Many communities fundraise for their local area, and charities often support their fundraising efforts. To ensure their staff and visitors are in a heart-safe environment private businesses currently purchase their own unit(s).

Can the general public use a Dental Practices defibrillator?

The public availability of a dental practice defibrillator will be specific to that practice. At present there are no specific guidelines on access. We recommend registering the unit on The Circuit, the National Defibrillator Network. This connects ambulance services across the UK to available units. When registering your device, you are able to specify the access hours  to your business, if the defibrillator is located internally  rather than externally.
