OUR COMMITMENT TO DENTISTRY

Since its inception in 2006, Focus Health Group has been collaborating with clinicians to understand the needs of their patients and their practices. To this end Focus Health Group engaged dentists to understand the instances of anaphylactic shock and how practices could mitigate this risk to patients. The result of this collaboration is Epinephrine Professional, an epinephrine convenience kit which has set the standard for safety and convenience in Dentistry.

Focus Health Group has become the Dental Industry’s leading supplier of Epinephrine Convenience kits. Epinephrine Professional is trusted in practices across the country to keep patients safe. Focus Health Group affirms its commitment to dentistry by actively engaging with industry leaders and continuously seeking feedback from clinician and patient advocates through our Dental Advisory Board

Epinephrine Professional

After exhaustive research, Focus Health Group released Epinephrine Professional to meet the safety and compliance needs of dental practices. Designed with the clinician in mind, Epinephrine Professional is un-matched in time-to-deploy and ease-of-use.

Epinephrine Professional is a convenience kit containing a single use vial of Epinephrine, four alcohol prep pads, and three syringes, each with a pre-attached 23G needle. Each kit is equipped with a tamper-proof safety seal to ensure that life saving supplies are accessible when it matters most.
