All Things LA 2021:

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.

Pubmed for dental local anesthesia- look for evidence based results!
