Today’s dental hygienist must be knowledgeable in all aspects of the hygiene profession including providing local anesthesia administration to provide comfort to the dental patient. Presented by the *ADA CERP recognized University of Florida Office of Continuing Dental Education and utilizing University of Florida faculty, this course provides the participant with the mechanics to create a positive patient environment with competent pain and anxiety management.
All aspects of local anesthesia are explored from pharmacology to anatomy and managing all dental patients requiring local anesthesia. Special emphasis is placed on administering anesthesia to a periodontal patient. Practice management aspects are provided with “pearls” to utilize quality local anesthesia administration by the dental hygienist as a practice builder involving today’s demanding patient.
As with any hands-on training course, the participant should realize that competency, and ultimately proficiency, in the administration of local anesthesia requires repeated administration and periodic self-reeducation.
