Event Details

This hands-on course is designed for Dentists, Oral Health Therapists, Dental Therapists and Hygienists.


Pain control is central to enabling clinicians to provide dental treatment and to reduce the suffering of patients. During the last century, there has been a tremendous increase in our understanding of pain and how it’s mediated.
This has progressively led to the availability of a broader range of techniques and drugs to minimise or eliminate pain. This course examines these different techniques and drugs.


  1. Understand how pain is transmitted throughout the body 
  2. Understand how the different classes of analgesics work
  3. Understand how to prescribe analgesics appropriately
  4. Understand the pharmacology of local anaesthetics
