DESCRIPTION: Dentists have been identified as among the leading prescribers of opioids. Used to alleviate pain, dental clinicians have commonly prescribed opiods after tooth extractions or surgical procedures. In particular, the removal of third molars, most routinely performed during the teen years, has received significant focus since dentists were reported to be the highest prescribers of opioids for this vulnerable age group. - ADEA

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Understand the scope of the Opioid Problem.
  • Know the role of the dental clinician.
  • Review prescribing recommendations.
  • Discuss strategies to reduce opioid abuse.
