Course Description

Opioid crisis is a national emergency and has been claiming lives for years. US life expectancy fell last year for a second year running for the first time in more than half a century, reportedly driven by the worsening opioid crisis. In this presentation we will discuss natural alternatives to pain management that can significantly decrease and in some instances eliminate the need of opioids for management of pain after various dental procedures.
