This course will encompass an update on a multimodal approach to analgesia in Dentistry. There is more to life than Norco. Here is what you need to know about opioids, the potential risks for addiction and alternatives to opioids and drugs for that matter. What is the most effective way as a prescriber to provide the required informed consent to a minor before prescribing an opioid? Furthermore, we will delve into the California legalization of Cannabis, also known as marijuana used for medical and recreational purposes and how it affects your day to day practice. Even though federally marijuana is still a schedule I drug it’s here and we need to be in the know. Pain and pot what a way to spend an evening.
