Course Description

This is for dental hygienists who have taken the local anesthesia course, but may not be comfortable in administering all types of local anesthetic blocks. Refresh your knowledge and meet NJ State Board of Dentistry requirements for administration of additional nerve blocks that were not mandated when the course was first offered. Receive a brief review of head and neck anatomy, patient pre-evaluation including medical and dental history considerations, recognition of adverse events, and selection of appropriate anesthetic agents and techniques for administering local anesthesia. Clinical training component includes monitored administration of local anesthesia on laboratory partners and will include both supraperiosteal (infiltration) injections and nerve block anesthesia (with the exception of the maxillary second division V2 nerve block). Course consists of one hour of didactic training and three hours of clinical training.

Note: You must provide proof of Dental Hygiene license and successful completion of state required Administration of Local Anesthesia course (32-hour course) and an up-to-date certificate in Basic Life Support (BLS) or CPR for the Healthcare Provider.
