Study: Dentists prescribe only 2 percent of opioids
The amount of opioids prescribed by all healthcare practitioners in the U.S. has increased over the last 15 years, but the total quantity of opioids prescribed by dentists has declined, according to new study published in Annals of Emergency Medicine. The resarchers calculated the quantity of opioids prescribed over a 15-year period by converting prescriptions to total milligrams of morphine equivalent.
