Phlebotomy & PRP for the Dental Staff

Phlebotomy, the practice of opening veins and removing blood, is a word and technique whose roots reach back centuries. The procedure (also known as venipuncture) was once the world’s most common method for treating illness, with medical science believing that bloodletting was essential for ridding bodily diseases. It’s amazing to think how far we’ve come.
