Opioid and Antibiotic Stewardship in Dentistry

Antibiotics and opioids account for three out of every four drugs prescribed by dentists in the United States and up to 10% of all prescriptions nationally. The consequences of inappropriate prescribing of these classes of medications is associated with increased antibiotic resistance, risk of opioid-use disorder, and adverse side effects for patients.  This presentation will review guidelines and strategies to optimize antibiotic and opioid prescribing by dentists in the inpatient and outpatient setting.

Course Objectives:

  1. Describe the burden of antimicrobial resistance (AR) and opioid use disorder (OUD) in the United States and patterns of prescribing in the practice of dentistry
  2. Review guidelines on antibiotic use for the prevention and treatment of infections, dental pain, and intraoral swelling
  3. Identify strategies for optimal antibiotic selection in the setting of antibiotic allergies and resistance trends for organisms associated with odontogenic infections
  4. Evaluate evidence-based opioid alternatives and pain management in patients with opioid use disorder
  5. Apply opioid-related regulatory changes to oral healthcare practice
