Reminder to California Licensed Dentists who hold a DEA Registration – You Must be Registered with the State’s Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System (CURES 2.0)

All health care practitioners authorized to prescribe or dispense Schedule II-IV controlled substances were required to register to use CURES 2.0 no later than July 1, 2016. To register using the automated system, simply visit Click on the Registration link and follow the instructions. CURES 2.0 users will be required to use Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 11.0 or greater, Mozilla FireFox, Google Chrome, or Safari when accessing the system.
