Choose the only text on local anesthesia designed specifically for dental hygienists! Local Anesthesia for the Dental Hygienist, 3rd Edition provides a complete guide to pharmacology and anesthetic techniques, helping students learn procedures before they work with actual patients. Detailed drawings show dental anatomy and full-color photos illustrate specific injection techniques. Case studies let students apply their knowledge to clinical practice, and the Evolve website includes procedure videos and board-exam preparation with practice questions and a mock licensure exam. Written in a warm, humanistic style, this text will allay any fears your students may have in working with local and topical anesthetics.

    • Clear, approachable writing style makes it easier to learn proper techniques and gain confidence, acknowledging not only the patient’s fear of injection but also the fears of the inexperienced clinician. 
    • More than 400 full-color photographs and illustrations show techniques, procedures, and instruments. 
    • Procedures boxes provide illustrated, step-by-step instructions for performing specific procedures, including indications, contraindications, nerves and teeth affected, operator and patient positioning, insertion point, penetration, amount of anesthetic, and working time.
    • Case studies make it easier to apply concepts to the clinical setting and to develop problem-solving skills.
    • Review questions at the end of each chapter provide the opportunity to assess your understanding, and the Evolve website provides chapter practice quizzes and a 55-question mock examination. 
    • Dental Hygiene Considerations boxes summarize key points and tips for optimal care.
    • Expert author Demetra Logothetis is an educator with more than 20 years of experience teaching local anesthesia administration for dental hygienists.
    • Key terms are highlighted within the text and defined in the glossary.
