Since 1990, Glenn J. Marie, DDS, has served young patients through his practice Dentistry for Children, located in Staten Island, New York. Deeply involved in the local dental community, Glenn J. Marie, DDS, is a longtime member of the Second District Dental Society of New York (SDDSNY).

As part of its mission to help support the dental profession in Brooklyn and Staten Island, SDDSNY often posts reminders and other news items of note to practicing dentists in the area. Earlier this year, the organization issued an important reminder to dentists about the new opioid prescribing law, which requires every dentist who holds a DEA registration number to complete a training course at least every three years.

The dental society also highlighted a course put together by the New York State Dental Foundation (NYSDF) that satisfies the state’s legal requirements, and counts for three hours toward a dentist’s continuing education requirements.
