Recently, changes in TSBDE Rules and Regulations were made to address the opioid and drug abuse epidemic, including mandatory continuing education programs for dental practitioners.  This program is designed to meet TSBDE Rule 111.1 and familiarize dentists and dental team members with current, important issues in the use of drug therapy, with an emphasis on scientific evidence to support therapeutic decisions.  The course will also cover the recognition and prevention of drug abuse and diversion. Included in this course are focused updates and reviews of learning objectives:

  • Review TSBDE Rules & Regulations related to the prescription of controlled substances
  • Assessment of acute pain associated with various dental procedures
  • Review of the clinical pharmacology and NSAID and opioid analgesics
  • Selection of opioid and non-opioid analgesics for various clinical scenarios
  • Basic characteristics & operating features of the Texas Prescription Monitoring program

New Dentist Corner September 2018

It’s a great time to be in Austin! Summer is just a blur but a shining moment was our awesome boat party last month! This year, we kicked it up a notch and had some pretty neat lake floats and delicious sandwiches from Thundercloud Subs. It was great seeing new and old faces and we loved catching up with everyone. We couldn’t have done this without our GREAT sponsors: Burkhart Dental, DJ Bhola CPA, Great State Dental Lab and Xite Realty. Each of these sponsors have been key components in the success of our group. We encourage all members to take time to visit with them at our events because they have a wealth of knowledge that can be very helpful in any stage of your career. 

A notable piece of advice we have been given is the importance of building “your dream team”, one of whom should be a mentor. One of CADS many benefits is our Mentorship Program. There is a subsection on CADS website that lists our ready and willing mentors that have generously offered to provide support and guidance to our new dentists. The combined years of experience and expertise on our panel is impressive and anyone would be lucky to be teamed up with them.  

Lastly, SAVE THE DATE for our Fall Pub Crawl on October 27! More details to follow!
