Leslie S.T. Fang, MD, PhD, a clinician-teacher at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School and a pharmacology and physiology specialist, is offering a three-credit study at home course, “The New ADA Policy on Opioid Prescriptions.”
Designed exclusively for dentists, the three-hour class reviews all of the safety protocols and regulations related to controlled substances. Fang also teaches dentists how to optimize the use of non-narcotic painkillers. Participants also will receive The Ultimate Cheat Sheets: The Practical Guide for Dentists, which serves as the textbook for the class.
“The ADA’s policy on opioids is designed to protect patients, but it will also safeguard dentists,” Fang said.
