Dr. Rake’s responsible opioid prescription advocacy was catapulted by a series of unfortunate events that greatly impacted her. She has had the privilege of advocating for responsible Opioid prescribing for many years. She has participated in numerous lectures locally and nationally advocating through education to other dental/medical professionals that are also responsible for opioid patient prescribing. Dr. Rake has been featured in numerous articles and television segments. She has also served as part of an expert doctor panel at NBC Universal in New York.
As a Doctor on the front line of this issue she maintains that “My plea as a prescribing surgeon, daughter, wife, mother, and fellow human being is for all of us to educate ourselves and our patients about opioids: weigh the benefits with the risks and change prescribing patterns.”
