Dental Care During Catastrophic Events
Dentists as health-care providers have knowledge, skill, and expertise to function as a vital part of the disaster response team in response to a catastrophic event. A knowledge of physiology, anatomy, and pathology aids in recognition of community health threats, bioterrorism, and rescue efforts as a result of physical harm. It is vitally important for dental organizations to inform, educate, and train dentists to work in this regard to protect the public.
