Medical emergencies at dental office are a rare situation. When the dentist encounters such occasional incidences, they should initiate emergency procedures to save the life of the patient. In case of an emergency, the roles and activities of the dentist and the team members should be planned, documented, and displayed. The staff members should be trained and updated in first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and other emergency procedures. The knowledge of management of medical emergencies will increase the confidence of the dental surgeons in their clinical practice. The objective of this review article is to provide a vision to the commonly occurring medical and dental emergencies and complications in dental practice and their management.
