This two-hour program will discuss the addictive nature, abuse, and proper prescribing of opioids in a dental practice. For centuries opioids have been used to control pain and suffering, but at what cost to us, our families, and our dental practices? What are our alternatives for controlling post-operative pain? This lecture will satisfy the Ohio State Dental Board’s requirement for opioid prescribing for the biennium ending 12/31/23 for dentists and hygienists!
At the conclusion of this course, the attendees will know how to combine analgesics to maximize post-operative pain control, appropriate clinical use of the opioid and non-opioid analgesics, what a PDMP is and the regulations for using PDMP in Ohio, what is naloxone, and how/when it is appropriate to use as well as signs of opioid overdose.
