    By Julie Flaherty

    "No one likes a shot in the mouth, but can it be harder to give than to receive? Each January, second-year students at the School of Dental Medicine take a gentle stab at injecting their first local anesthetic, facing what Professor Morton Rosenberg calls the “most fearful procedure in dentistry.” The upside? They practice these injections on the most empathetic guinea pigs—each other."

    Yup been that way in mostschools for years. Its supposedly a really funny day, when the entire class is walking around with numb faces for a day. Its even better whennthe person thats practicing on you is having a difficult time and keeps missing the nerve. You get so numb lol you cant talk for a week j/k:laugh:
