Description

In the midst of a national opioid epidemic, dentists play a major role in helping to mitigate the problem. This two-hour live webinar will address subjects such as ethical prescription writing to help lessen the availability of excess opioids; specific clinical dental situations that may alter dental care due to drug-seeking behavior and substance abuse; questions to ask in the initial patient interview that may alert a dentist to suspect opioid-seeking behavior; constructive steps the dentist can take to set boundaries on when to prescribe opioids; and specific pre-operative and chairside procedures that can lessen the need for post-op opioids.

Speaker
Dr. J. William Claytor, DDS, MAGD
