6:00-8:00pm – Online Course • 2 CE units, Core

The May General Meeting will be held in an online format. A Zoom invitation will be sent out to everyone who signs up.

This lecture is designed for anyone who wishes to expand their understanding of the newest pharmacologic agents and delivery techniques of local anesthesia. A range of new anesthesia products, some already available and some still in development, will be presented, along with discussion of how and when to best use our various agents. We will also address how best to anesthetize “hot” tooth and gum situations and other possible “anesthesia failure” problems that we all run into.

Participants will learn:

  • The common causes of local anesthesia failures and how to better overcome them.
  • How to achieve more effective and predictable anesthesia for any dental treatment procedure.
  • The science behind new anesthetics and techniques that are now available in the dental marketplace or that are currently being researched.
  • How to apply the latest anesthetic agent technology to your daily practice to achieve profound patient anesthetic comfort.
