Site of blood draw for dental patients?

As a potential area of interest to all, it would be appreciated if we could share some information on the location of blood draws. Is it the opinion of my colleagues that patients prefer to have blood drawn from the cubital fossa vs. their hand? Blood draw can be challenging with the older segment of population as well as the obese, people with darker skin, tattoos, etc. Dental procedures are fairly traumatic to some and the addition of venipuncture adds to that trauma. Many people today choose not to be sedated in my experience and therefore we try to avoid multiple sticks. Instruments helpful in vein finding are expensive and even phlebotomist typically don’t use it. Thoughts?
