What is the deal with dental boards being so scared of a dental hygienists giving local anesthesia? We brought on pharmacology expert, Tom Viola and dental board member, Misty Mattingly to discuss the risks and rewards for writing this into state legistlation.
In this episode we discuss:
- Educational standards for hygienists delivering LA
- How GA is rolling out training to hygienists
- Should we allow “on the job training” for LA? Are all owner dentists qualified to teach?
- How to maintain the integrity of the profession
