8:00am – 12:00pm (noon)
Join us for breakfast and an informative morning of CE. This 4 hour continuing education lecture will demonstrate the step-wide approach reducing acute post-operative dental pain, using the World Health Organization Analgesic Ladder. This well established Ladder has formed the factual basis for the introduction of steroids as a way to reduce opioid usage. The current CDC recommendations for pain relief, the inter-conversion and relative potency of commonly prescribed opioids, steroids and NSAIDS will be discussed.
Reminder: Dentists are now required to have at least 2 hours of continuing education over opioids each reporting period.
