Controlled Risk Mitigation Education Modules

The following free, self-study sessions focus on Controlled Substance Risk Mititgation in the dental practice. Each session is eligible for .75 CE hours and are part of a research study conducted by Prinicle Investigator Dr. Ronald Kulich.  The aim of this study is to deliver the first controlled substance risk mitigation training modules to Massachusetts practicing dentists, dental hygienists, and oral surgeons.
