Opioid Prescribing for Pain Management in California


The Dental Board of California (Board) recognizes that the widespread use and abuse of opioids in the country has risen to an epidemic level. The Board believes that educating both licensees and consumers on this important issue coincides with their mission of public protection. The Board therefore encourages its licensees to learn more, about this epidemic and its tragic effects on individuals and their families; and to understand best prescribing practices and patient education methods that can be used when prescribing opioids.
