This workshop is an opportunity to develop and practice clinical techniques with special emphasis on the mandible, including the Gow-Gates , the Vazirani-Akinosi mandibular division block technique, tips and tricks for conventional IA regional nerve blocks, and single tooth anesthesia without a nerve block injection. A complete maxillary division block will also be presented. Short lecture segments present the anatomical landmarks and discuss the steps of individual nerve block techniques, followed by a clinical demonstration of the technique.  The participants will pair up to practice locating the landmarks and walking through the technique on each other (no actual injections are given). Additional techniques will be discussed by participant request.
