This four-day course will satisfy the State of Illinois expanded function training requirements to allow registered dental hygienists to administer local anesthesia under the general supervision of a licensed dentist. A pre-course reading assignment from Dr. Stanley F. Malamed’s Handbook of Local Anesthesia (6th or 7th edition) assures a foundation of understanding that is reinforced by lectures.
In clinic, participants must agree to receive, as well as administer, injections. Course size is limited to 24 persons per session. While a test of basic knowledge based on pre-course reading is given on the first course day, successful course completion is based solely on competency demonstrated in the clinic.
