The second edition of my favorite local anesthesia book has been released, and it has some great updates in it. It’s called “Local Anesthesia for Dental Professionals, 2nd Edition” and is written by Kathy Bassett, Arthur DiMarco and Doreen Naughton. If you recall, Kathy is the local anesthesia instructor who dropped by my operatory to walk me through my first Gow-Gates injection and my first AMSA injection live on camera. Due to the fact that I hadn’t been taught either of these injections in dental school, I never felt quite comfortable enough to try them on patients until the day Kathy was here. I’m happy to say that her book does a great job of walking you through these injections, just as she did for me.
