Nice but not this LA . . .


All Things LA 2018:
Local Anesthesia for Dental Hygienists

Check out the following sites for information on local anesthesia.
Pain control is an important step in the care of the dental hygiene

For many years, Margaret has maintained that there is no need
for a special device such as a skull that lights up to learn local
anesthesia but student-to-student practice is truly key. This
now has been proven by a new going-to-be-landmark research
article in the CJDH (scroll) that she had an opportunity to
review for the Journal.

Please remember to check state guidelines concerning local
anesthesia administration by a dental hygienist.

Google Play sample; however, feedback on Kindle for my textbooks is not good.  Not sure how this will "play" out for the figures, etc.
