Opioid Training

Maine's opioid prescribing continuing education requirements require that all licensed dentists must complete three hours of continuing education on opioids as a condition to prescribe opioid medication. The requirement must be completed every two years.

A letter from the Maine Board of Dental Practice that provides additional information about the education requirements can be found here - Informational Letter - Opioid Prescribing and Continuing Education.
