New State Requirements for Those Writing Prescriptions for Schedule Drugs

There is a NEW State mandate requiring 3 hours of opioid prescribing and abuse awareness C.E. for those doctors holding a controlled dangerous substance license permitting them to prescribe schedule drugs. The 3-hour course must be completed sometime between Aug. 1, 2017, and the first time you renew your license after Jan. 1, 2018, and must include drug diversion training, best practice prescribing of controlled substances, appropriate treatment for addiction, and any other matters regarding the prescribing of controlled dangerous substances that are deemed appropriate by the board. According to current law, you will never have to take the course again. Note: The LDA’s Last Chance Seminar (www.ladental.org/lastchance) Dec. 8, 2017, will satisfy this requirement.

Rulemaking Process Started to Change C.E. Requirements

At its Friday, Aug. 18, 2017, LA State Board of Dentistry meeting, the LSBD voted to begin the rulemaking process in order to change C.E. requirements. For dentists renewing licenses at the end of 2018 and thereafter, 30 hours will be required every 2 years, and all 30 hours must be clinical. Further, 20 of the 30 hours must be obtained in person (not online C.E.).


LDA Credit Card Surcharge Policy

We impose a surcharge of 2.25% on the transaction amount on credit card products, which is not greater than our cost of acceptance.

Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments, better known as automatic withdrawals for dues, from checking and savings accounts will continue to be accepted by the LDA via the ACH Network without a convenience fee. The LDA will also continue to accept check payments via mail or in person without a surcharge.

Delivery Method & Timing of Payments
On-line event registrations and dues payments are processed when submitted.  An on-line confirmation will display once the payment process has been approved.

Refunds
Refunds will be given with the approval of the LDA.  In the unlikely event a meeting is cancelled, all C.E. registration fees will be refunded, less proportional costs of materials already produced and distributed.
