The deadline to take the mandatory opioid course to maintain your dental license is this Thursday, Jan. 31! Go to floridadental.org/opioidcourse to register and take this course.
Per HB 21, each person registered with the DEA and authorized to prescribe controlled substances shall complete a board-approved two-hour continuing education course on prescribing controlled substances by Jan. 31, 2019.
You MUST indicate whether you are registered with the DEA to prescribe controlled substances through the Florida Department of Health. This is the only way the BOD will know if you are required to take the mandatory opioid course. *The BOD automatically assumes you are registered with the DEA and must take the mandatory course if you do not indicate otherwise.*
For more information on HB 21 and its requirements, go to floridadental.org/opioidlaw.
