California Oral Surgeons Tackle Opioid Misuse and Dependence
ROSEVILLE, Calif /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ – In an effort to stem the tide of opioid misuse and abuse, the California Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (CALAOMS) is combating the epidemic by educating middle and high school students and first responders throughout the state.
The effort, led by Alan H. Kaye, DDS, an oral surgeon in Beverly Hills, Past President of CALAOMS, former president of the California State Dental Board and former clinical chief of Oral Surgery/Dentistry at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, is a result of his own familiarity dealing with his patients’ inexperience about the dangers of opioid misuse and dependency.
Kaye and other oral surgeons are looking forward to traveling the state giving talks to middle and high schools as well as other municipal departments. He hopes his presentation will be shown to every middle and high school student in California.
