Dental Hygiene Anesthesia: Continuing the Education

Jul 2, 2008
As a dental hygienist or dental assistant, you know that it is necessary to graduate from an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited school of dental hygiene and have a current certification in CPR and other such documents.

- Dental Hygiene Anesthesia: What to Expect

Continuing education is important in dental anesthesia, in order to stay in touch with the latest trends and technologies as well as staying current with safety and procedures as they are to be properly performed. This article discusses some of the continuing education opportunities available for clinical local anesthesia courses.

Most continuing education dental hygiene anesthesia courses are going to provide a comprehensive introduction to conscious sedation. Topics will most likely include areas of anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and dental emergencies.

Other dental hygiene anesthesia courses will describe themselves as pain control and local anesthesia courses. All courses will be anywhere from 3 days to a week long, and could be seen somewhat as refresher courses.

- What to Look for in a Good Dental Hygiene Anesthesia Course:

A good course will provide content on rationale for pain management, medical emergencies as well as client management tools. There should be a review of the essential anatomy that need be fully understood to perform dental anesthesia, as well as physiology and pharmacology of the pain control agents, typically nitrous oxide.

The idea, of course, is to train a dental hygienist who will safely and effectively administer a local anesthesia. This means the course should probably include lecture time, laboratory time and focus on clinical settings. At the completion of the course, the participant should receive a certificate of local anesthesia for the acceptable state of practice.

You will most likely be provided with a text book on local anesthesia as well which is included in the payment. However, don't expect a refund for partial completion of the course.

Usually there will be a few course presenters who will take part in the lecture, laboratory time and clinical trial and clinical settings time.

- Dental Hygiene Anesthesia Conclusion:

You will obviously want to take a course that will certify you for the state in which you practice. Shop around for the right price, as you may find big differences in the course costs. Make sure to complete all the general requirements and be aware of them, as well as the time it will take to complete the course. Make sure the dental hygienist licensing course has a strong reputation as well.
