ADA Policy on Opioids

The American Dental Association's (ADA's) Policy on Opioid Prescribing has been designed to combat the opioid epidemic. This important policy supports mandatory continuing education for dentists about prescribing opioids and other controlled substances. It also supports limits on opioid dosage and duration of no more than seven days for the treatment of acute pain, and the utilization of prescription drug monitoring programs.

According to the ADA, this policy was adopted to guide the organization's advocacy efforts centered on the role of dental professionals in preventing opioid abuse.
