Do you remember your first time giving an injection? I do. I went first in my school group, and somehow stabbed through the glove of my non-dominant hand before I even got to the mouth. Now as an instructor I see many students struggle with shaking during dental injections. I understand that there are a lot of nerves running through you during school and on your clinical exams. You want to look confident when you are administering local anesthesia, so shaking is not acceptable. Sing a little song, take deep breaths, shake it out before picking up that syringe, and then check out our latest video on some tips for stabilizing your injection.
