GOW GATES and PSAs...these 2 local anesthetic techniques are quite useful for your patients but might need a little hand holding if you have not administered them awhile. The most common reason for not giving these "blocks" is fear. Why not take a hands on local anesthetic refresher course and see how simple they really are! Let me know if you are interested. Visit the bchygienists on Facebook. Next seminar will be on dental emergencies ..we will reveiw some CPR as well.November 19 (should be a Tuesday) see you at the seminar
