Prescription misuse found at CU dental school - The Denver Post

Prescription misuse found at CU dental school - The Denver Post

The University of Colorado's dental school has for years allowed a dentist without an active state license to treat patients alongside students — a situation that may have led to violations of federal law governing sedation drugs and prescriptions for narcotics, a Denver Post investigation found.

An exception to state law permitted dentists without an active Colorado license to practice at the University of Colorado Denver until August. After being confronted by The Post, the university ordered five dentists whose licensure status was in question to stop seeing patients.
