This text is an awesome accessory or solo book for learning about local anesthetics, techniques and for a dental hygienist taking the local anesthetic certification course. Our class required Mahlmeds text, but I am glad I purchased this as a resource. I wish it could have been the standard text for the class. It has a great feel -softcover, not too thick and easy to highlite notes in, it fit in my tote bag making it easy to carry around. I was nervous about taking on the task of learning to administer anesthetics after being out of college ahem…25+ years this book greatly took the pressure off. I found reading it to flow well.
The book offers great charts, full color photos and every chapter has a nice 20 question review test and scenario question. I found there was much more compiled colored reference pages than the required class text. The section on injections were much more detailed in step by step with photos and instructor an Oral Surgeon agreed the needle angles during injection photos shown were much more accurate than class text. The publisher also has a companion website to receive end chapter answers, and mock tests.
It was a great companion rescource while studying for class. I would first read this book, then required class text. Halfway through I would just skim our class text as I found out this author covered it better and much more easy to understand.
Oh, an awesome thing -the index in the back seemed so intuitive- when I thought of a topic I needed to get an answer to, or locate in book -it usually did not fail me vs class text was less than steller results.
I just finished taking the NERB Local Anesthetic exam, awaiting results and feel this book made me much more confident in taking it and helping me pass.
I have recently taken the local anesthesia and pain control course for dental hygienists. Our required textbook was Malameds. Upon research I noticed that many hygienists were also purchasing this book. I did the same and am so happy I have. It contains the same material as Malamed but in a language that dental hygienists can comprehend so easily. It includes case studies, easy to understand graphs and equations, and has test questions after each chapter. The only downside is that I could never access the online material the book claims you have access to with the purchase of the book. Two of the instructors that taught my course also reviewed this book. They are considering changing the required text to this textbook at next years local anesthesia course.
