JADA April 2018
Dentists wrote 6.4% of all opioid prescriptions in the United States in 2012. The purpose of this study was to examine opioid prescription rates, dosage of opioids prescribed, type of opioid drug prescribed, and type of dental visit at which dentists prescribe opioids. The authors used the 2010 through 2015 Truven Health Marketscan Research databases and the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) Training and Technical Assistance Center conversion data set. The authors conducted descriptive analyses for days’ supply, quantity prescribed, and daily morphine milligram equivalent dose.

Key Words: Opioids; prescriptions; dentists.
