In 2015 the NC Legislature adopted NC SL 2015-241:
SECTION 12F.16.(c) In establishing the continuing education standards, the boards listed in subsction (b) of this section shall require that at least one hour of the total required continuing education hours consists of a course designed specifically to address prescribing practices. The course shall include, but not be limited to, instruction on controlled substance prescribing practices and controlled substance prescribing for chronic pain management.
In compliance with this provision, Old Well Consulting has developed a continuing education program tailored to meet the needs of Dentistry. The program "Strategies for Acute Pain Management in Dentistry" is approved by the Academy of General Dentistry for 2 credit hours of continuing education credit and meets criteria for re-licensure as required by the NC Legislature and the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners (NCBDE).
David M H Lambert, DDS is a Board Certified Oral & Maxillofacial surgeon, former practicing clinical pharmacist, and associate for Old Well Consulting. Mr Sean Kurdys is a former lead investigator for the NCBDE and principal of Old Well Consulting. This unique 2hr continuing education course entails an overview of the opiate crisis as it exists today, including an overview of the physiology of pain, the pharmacology of analgesics, strategies for managing acute pain, in addition to regulatory compliance issues as related to the NCBDE, closed case reviews, and tips for avoiding regulatory pitfalls.
