Online Opioid Course

Free CE for an Ohio State Dental Board requirement

A Dentist’s Guide to Recognizing and Understanding Addiction and Engaging in Responsible Prescribing Practices

This online CE course is available exclusively to ODA member dentists and meets the Ohio State Dental Board requirement of Continuing Education in opioid prescribing and addiction awareness.

To receive CE credit, member dentists must complete an online exam after watching the course. After you have passed the exam, the Ohio Dental Association will process your exam and email you a CE certificate within a few weeks.

Why is the ODA offering this opioid prescribing course?

The Ohio State Dental Board requires all dentists to complete two hours of continuing education on opioid prescribing and related issues. The rule requires two hours of CE for each of the next two bienniums in order for dentists to renew their license in Ohio and went into effect Jan. 1, 2020. This requirement applies to all Ohio licensed dentists, whether or not they write prescriptions.

To help ODA members meet this requirement, the Ohio Dental Association has created this free online CE course, “A Dentist’s Guide to Recognizing and Understanding Addiction and Engaging in Responsible Prescribing Practices.” The two-hour course on opioid prescribing and other addiction-related information is available exclusively to ODA members as a benefit of membership.
