Compassion for patients is of utmost importance – balancing this compassion with social responsibility is of equal importance. In the context of opioid prescribing, social responsibility involves safeguarding patients against misuse, abuse, diversion, substance use disorders, and drug overdose.

The presentation will discuss the responsibility of dental clinicians in combating the current opioid epidemic through understanding the development of substance use disorders, screening patients for opioid misuse risk, and adopting sound and socially responsible opioid prescribing guidelines and policies.
