Editorial Reviews


“This is the  4th year I have taught Pain Control in Dentistry and the first year  I have used the textbook Local Anesthesia for Dental Professionals, by  KB Bassett, AC DiMarco and DK Naughton.  I can say without reservation  that this textbook is very teacher and student friendly with excellent color  photos of injection technique, illustrations of concepts such as nerve impulse  conduction and examples of dosage calculations that greatly enhanced the  teaching and learning in my classroom.  The inclusion of a head and neck  anatomy review at the back of the book was very helpful as were the Appendices  included throughout the book.  It is apparent that educators wrote this  textbook and we are pleased to have changed to this text.  I would highly  recommend it to other dental and dental hygiene programs as well as to  practicing professionals who strive for clinical excellence in the delivery of  local anesthesia.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book April 20, 2012
By Dianne
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is written in a very user friendly way. The descriptions are clear and concise. Much better than other text books on Local Anesthesia that I have used. I would say this is targeted toward the Dental Hygienist and the role as such in the dental office. Would highly recommend.
