This course is comprised of two sessions. As participants practice on each other, you must be able to receive local anaesthesia or you must provide a stand-in for your partner. SESSION I – (two full days, April 4th & 5th) consists of didactic information, instruction, and application of clinical techniques. SESSION II – (April 24th evening and April 25th full day) consists of written and clinical evaluations. NOTE: During the interval between Session I and Session II, participants must practice the techniques under the personal observation of their employing dentist. If you are from out of province, it is your responsibility to make arrangements to complete your practicum in British Columbia or in a jurisdiction where dental hygienists may legally administer local anaesthetic agents. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: 1. Describe head and neck anatomy related to the administration of local anaesthetic agents. 2. Describe principles of pharmacology related to local anaesthetic agents and adrenergic drugs. 3. Demonstrate the various techniques involved in the administration of local anaesthetic agents. 4. Explain patient evaluation, complications and office emergencies as related to local anaesthesia. NOTE: “Handbook of Local Anaesthesia (5th Edition),” by Dr. Stanley Malamed is the textbook for the course and should be reviewed prior to the course. A self aspirating syringe is also provided to each participant on the first day of the course. Participants must successfully complete the program prior to being eligible for a change in registration status by the College of Dental Hygienists of British Columbia to administer local anaesthetic agents. Saturday, April 18th DE9312 If You Can’t Beat’em, Enjoy Them & But Aren’t They Just Baby Teeth? Dr. Greg Psaltis If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Enjoy Them (Behavior Management from a new perspective) This fun program covers all aspects of Behavior Management, which is far more than simply “controlling the child” in a dental setting. Emphasis is on the behavior of the provider, which ultimately enables the child to succeed in a dental setting. Techniques for handling the child are covered (some with video footage), as well as specific techniques for altering negative behaviors, such as needle-phobia, gagging, etc. This participation program helps the audience understand the child’s view-point in the dental setting. There is material on how to effectively deal with parents and help make them a part of the success of the child’s experience rather than a detriment. Three-hour format: This shorter version covers the main points in the longer program, but without as much time spent on the specific negative behaviors or video footage. But Aren’t They Just Baby Teeth? You’ve heard these words before and can’t help thinking to yourself, “Oh no,
17another uninformed parent.” Parents who pose this question (and others)are not really ignorant—they are often working from old beliefs or their ownexperiences. The ability to answer these common questions insures a greaterunderstanding of the pediatric dental issues at hand and creates a positiverelationship through effective communications. This program is based onquestions routinely heard from parents of pediatric dental patients and coversa broad spectrum of topics. Included are primary anterior trauma, treatmentplanning, “rotten teeth,” timing of initial examinations and more.
