As a group practice owner, she soon realized her purpose in dentistry: to aid patients in decreasing the anxiety associated with dental treatment. After the addition of I.V. sedation to her practices, Dr. Goodson began to realize there were many Dentists that would benefit from the inclusion of sedation to their practices.
In 2005, she developed Portable Anesthesia Services to provide in-office moderate I.V. Sedation for the General Dentist and Specialist. Dr. Goodson travels to the offices of Dentists in Texas with all necessary equipment and supplies to provide I.V. sedation. Her anesthesia practice also treats medically and psychologically compromised patients.
As Dr. Goodson became a more frequent guest at the offices of her colleagues, she discovered one consistent occurrence: a woefully inadequate or non-existent emergency drug kit. She began to develop customized kits for each practice and offered the staff training in the use of its contents. Medical Emergency Mastery was founded with the sole mission of providing consistent, reproducible training to dental offices. This straightforward training would allow dental practices to recognize emergencies, maintain emergency-readiness and document training efforts and equipment maintenance.
To provide ongoing support for her clients, Dr. Goodson has authored a support chairside handbook, “Treatment of Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office” (now in its 2nd edition). She provides in-office staff training and off-site video demonstrations. She is currently developing an interactive Medical History Intake form to improve the Dentists knowledge of their patient’s medical history.
