In 2015, the Health Policy Institute reported that dental emergency department visits reached 2.18 million people in 2012. Opioid related deaths are also on the rise. Emergency departments are looking for alternative methods for controlling dental pain without prescribing narcotics. For short term pain management, emergency department medical providers are turning to dental local anesthesia. Training for dental local anesthesia techniques is almost non-existent in medical training programs. Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health has designed an innovative dental anesthesia training program for medical providers and has taught this course to physician assistant (PA) students and practicing PAs and nurse practitioners.
