Event date: 6/21/2018 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Export event

Thursday, June 21 - 1:00 PM Eastern Time

Dental pain, both acute and chronic, is a serious problem for many patients. Dentists are challenged with adequately managing dental pain while balancing the risk of controlled substance abuse and diversion. Safe prescribing skills are a critical aspect of patient care amid today’s opioid abuse crisis. Part Two of this program will review the basics of dental pain management and prescribing, including patient counseling and the selection of effective analgesic medications. This course will also propose risk management recommendations to help dentists navigate ethical concerns and regulatory requirements associated with pain management and prescribing.
