There has been an epidemic of prescription opioid abuse and dentists could be playing a role in the problem. Dr. Bundy will be discussing key strategies on limiting the amount of opioids prescribed as well as highlighting red flag warnings that may alert the dentist to possible addiction or diversion techniques by the patient. We will also briefly discuss CURES and how it affects dentists in their practice.
New ADA Advertising Campaign Brings More Patients to You
The ADA is launching a new advertising campaign to bring more patients to your practice. In this 3-year campaign, the ADA will be investing $6 million annually on search and digital advertising to direct consumers to make an appointment with an ADA dentist. As part of this campaign, an enhanced ADA® Find-a-Dentist™ tool will launch in April with new search fields and a consumer-friendly interface to make it easier for patients to find you to book an appointment.
