CURES 2.0 Enrollment Now Open To Dentists

All dentists who are authorized to prescribe, order, administer, furnish or dispense controlled substances must register in the Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System (CURES) by July 1 and have updated browsers to access the system. Dispensed controlled substance prescriptions are recorded in CURES, which allows prescribers to look up a patient's controlled substance current usage and past history.

To access CURES 2.0, dentists are required to use Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 11.0 or greater, Mozilla FireFox, Google Chrome or Safari. Access to the current CURES 1.0 is available for now, but the Department of Justice told CDA that dentists should have up-to-date browsers within the first half of the year to retain access to the CURES database.
