    This virtual session with Dr. Nathan Suter will cover the digital transformation of the patient care journey.

Many practices are already using parts of teledentistry or digital dentistry and with new legislation and insurance coverage a practice can maximize the benefits to both the patient and the care team by leveraging technology to deliver care.

  • Opioids in Dentistry

    Tue, May 17, 2022 | 6:00 PM - Tue, May 17, 2022 | 9:15 PM
    As dentists, it is expected that we are able to provide our patients with high quality pain relief for management of acute dental pain as well as during recovery from procedures. Opioids represent an important tool in achieving this goal. However, misuse of these medications can lead to dependence, addiction, overdose and even death. Through continuing education, we strive to improve our opioid prescribing practices to reduce these negative consequences, while continuing to provide our patients with high quality care.
