Local Anesthesia & Teledentistry


TDHA Annual Session has wrapped and we had an incredible time laying out the groundwork for the year ahead with promise to engage ourselves, our members, and our representatives. Local Anesthesia and Teledentistry have great promise, we just need our representatives to understand how much of a positive impact it would have in access to care for their constituents. Keep an eye out on our legislative page for updates on these bills.

Our November CE mailer is out and we’re ready to learn about Forensic Dentistry! Be sure to keep your RSVP current. If you need to update your RSVP, please do so. Last month, we had over 55 confirm they were going to attend but only 27 attended. Food was free and too much was ordered. It helps everyone if we have an accurate count. You can update your RSVP on the Continuing Education page. Thank you all!
