"Hit Me With Your Best Shot" Local Anesthesia with Dr. Stanley Malamed

This program is open to all dental professionals, including dentists, hygienists, staff and students.

Effectively managing and preventing a patient's pain is just as important as actually performing the treatment. The use of local anesthesia as a pain control technique is safe and effective, and can help make your patient comfortable during their treatment.

Renowned dental anesthesiologist Dr. Malamed discusses how to make local anesthetic injections more effective and comfortable for your patients by utilizing:

  • Articaine
  • Buffering (the local anesthetic "on switch")
  • Phentolamine (the local anesthetic "off switch")
  • computer-controlled local anesthetic delivery (C-CLAD) 
  • the nasal local anesthetic spray for maxiallary non-molar teeth

An algorthim for mandibular anesthesia will be presented, followed by a Q & A session.

Earn 2 CE credits for attending the lecture. Bring your dental team and enjoy wine and light bites at our networking reception!

Dr. Stanley Malamed graduated from NYU Dentistry in 1969. He is a dental anesthesiologist and Emeritus Professor of Dentistry at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC in Los Angeles, where he taught from 1973 to 2013.
