This course will prepare dental hygienists to become competent in the administration of both block and infiltration local anesthesia. Emphasis is placed on the mechanisms of pain and a thorough understanding of the pharmacology of drugs used in dentistry and their interactions with the patient’s current medical conditions and medications. The course has a self study component which occurs prior to the threeday workshop. Following a review of the information included in the self-study materials, participants will complete a pre-clinical examination which has a passing grade of 70 per cent. During Days 2 and 3, participants will receive over-the-shoulder coaching as they administer local anesthesia on each other. Upon successful completion of the clinical competency
examination at the end of the program, participants will be issued a certificate of completion.
