We are in a time of “transition.” As we know the future continues to be challenging, daunting, perplexing but in my view it will be awesome. The only constant will continue to be change.
Good news: We can be partners in that change. Our world has rapidly changed over the past few decades raising our doubts and fears; but in spite of the tragedies and crisis we read about in our daily papers or watch on TV, I believe today and the future is still a good time to be alive.
This presentation will explore some of those changes and our resources as we share the exciting years ahead.

Join us from 5:45-6:45pm for a reception with UOP grads

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.
