Event Details

Much has changed over the past couple of years regarding the use of medicines to manage acute dental pain. Codeine has gone prescription only, oxycodone and Cox-2 inhibitors are being encouraged and drug combinations are all the rage. The new third edition, Therapeutic Guidelines – Oral and Dental recommends some new ideas and even the use of analgesics in the context of coronavirus has challenged our usual protocols.


If these challenges have left you wondering whether you’re up-to-date and prescribing appropriately, then this one-hour webinar is for you.


Join Dr Geraldine Moses AM, Consultant Pharmacist to the Australian Dental Association, for a discussion about current protocols. Dr Moses AM will provide clear guidance on how best to prescribe medicines to manage acute dental pain.


The webinar is available to Dental Protection members and there will be the opportunity for real time questions and answers. Register now via MPS’s elearning platform PRISM.
