A new study shows that there’s a large disparity among dentists when it comes to the amount of training they’ve had and the usage when it comes to anesthesia.
For an article in the June issue of Anesthesia Progress, more than 700 dentists were surveyed. The study analyzed all aspects of anesthesia, including training and its application. The study began in April 2008 and concluded in December of that year.
The most common training came from oral surgery residences, while 33 percent said their post-graduate instruction was hospital-based.
