Local Anesthesia
Injection failure not only causes unnecessary patient discomfort and apprehension, it can also frustrate providers, as well. In this interactive course, Katrina Sanders guides you through the common causes of injection failure.

The Oral Systemic Myth
This course offers supportive insight into the systemic health conditions related to active periodontal infections. It offers dental professionals a clear understanding of how their daily work can impact the overall health of patients with these conditions—both positively and negatively.
