Local Anesthesia in Pediatric Dentistry

Introduction

Introduction

This course will teach the clinician how to administer an effective, safe and atraumatic local anesthesia injection to a child (or adult). Rather than avoiding local administration for fear of traumatizing the pediatric patient, the clinician should strive to learn and use the latest modalities of local pain control to create a pleasant and comfortable dental experience for the child.
