Charlotte, N.C., December 2017. – The American Dental Association (ADA) recently sent out a press release on December 20th to all Dentists nation-wide, sharing Dr. Misiek’s expertise around preventative measures to take regarding the opioid epidemic.

Carolinas Center for Oral & Facial Surgery is proud to be a company recognizing the global opioid crisis in the country. The opioid epidemic is front and center in the news nearly every day. At the same time, the bulk of national conversations centers around the treatment of opioid addiction versus prevention. Dr. Dale Misiek from Carolinas Center for Oral & Facial Surgery helps lead the way in the fight against the opioid epidemic through preventative measures. See below for a brief clip from this year’s AAOMS Annual Meeting about what you can do during third molar or other oral surgeries to help your patients reduce or avoid opioids for post-op pain.
