LIVE Interactive Webinar | Prescribing Controlled Substances for Texas Dentists: Safe and Effective Control of Pain While Complying with TSBDE Rules and the Prescription Monitoring Program

Presented by: Arthur H. Jeske, DMD, PhD

Wednesday, August 26 from 5 - 7:15 p.m.

Synopsis

Dental procedures frequently require an understanding of the current, evidence-based role of drugs in overall patient management, particularly with regard to medically compromised patients. This seminar is designed to familiarize dental professionals with current issues in the use of drug therapy, with an emphasis on scientific guidance. Pharmacotherapy-focused updates and reviews will also be discussed during this course.

 Dental Practitioners: This is the last opportunity to meet the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE) requirements for RULE §111.1 (a) to prevent misuse of controlled substances, opiod prescription practices and/or pharmacology. Dental professionals with DEA numbers MUST have completed the 2 hour requirement by September 1st.  

 his course is designed to satisfy TSBDE requirements for RULE §111.1 (a). Recent changes in TSBDE Rules and Regulations require that dental practitioners be able to access the Texas Prescription Monitoring Program to prevent misuse of controlled substances. This course will also discuss strategies for observing applicable rules and regulations pertaining to the prescription, administration, and disposal of controlled substances in dental practice, in order to offer patients safe and effective pharmacotherapy. We will also discuss the recognition and prevention of drug abuse and diversion in dental patients and dental practice.
