Drs. Sharon Parsons and David Kimberly presented a one hour webinar on October 21, 2021 that covered the important topic of Opioids, Dentistry and Addiction: The Dentist’s Role in Treating Pain. The United States experienced a tragic rise in drug overdose deaths in 2020, which was largely caused by inappropriate use of opioids. Viewers will hear from a practicing dentist and an oral surgeon about the positive role dentists can play to help mitigate the opioid crisis. Additionally, viewers will gain a better understanding about substance use and addiction as well as learn about the best options currently available for the treatment of acute pain.
