Dental Pain and Infection Control 
Thursday, April 2, 2020

Session 1: 8:30-10:30 am

Session 2: 3:30-5:30 pm (repeat of session 1)

Get them out of pain, get the infection under control, and get them to a dentist. With over 18,000 patients a year showing up in Wisconsin EDs and urgent care, dental pain has reached epidemic proportions. We’ll share information on The Wisconsin Dental Pain Protocol, which includes an evidence-based clinical algorithm on non-opioid and opioid pain control, local anesthetics, and antibiotic prescribing specific to presenting infections. The majority of the session will be a hands-on training on local anesthetics. We’ll be gloving and masking up, sticking our hands in each other’s mouths, identifying anatomic landmarks, and making local anesthetic nerve blocks and infiltrations simple. Those interested will also be able to practice on each other or on your instructors. That’s right, if the session is boring, you can take your revenge.
