Fri. July 09, 2021 8:30 AM
Location: Cisco Webex or at UTHealth School of Dentistry
Website: Visit

Presented by: Arthur H. Jeske, DMD, PhD

In-Person or Live Interactive Webinar

Course Synopsis: This presentation combines all dentists' controlled substance CE requirements into a single 4-hour course. The Texas State Board Dental Examiners will count the 2 hours of CE required for DEA permit holders (RULE §111.1 (b)) towards the 4 hours of CE required for all dentists providing direct patient care starting January 1, 2021 (RULE §104.1 (2)(B)). Upon completing this 4-hour course, you will meet required hours for both RULE §111.1 (b) and  RULE §104.1 (2)(B).

Dr. Jeske will provide an in-depth review of the clinical pharmacologic characteristics of opioids and other controlled substances utilized in pain control, including indications, contraindications, adverse effects, and drug-drug interactions regarding beneficial and adverse drugs. This presentation emphasizes safe and effective dosing and the proper dose regimens in the preoperative and postoperative care settings. Attendees can also expect to learn more about medicolegal and ethical considerations, including reasonable standards of care to be applied when prescribing controlled substances.
