Opioid crisis in Arizona

DYK there were 790 deaths from opioid overdoses last year? This situation in Arizona has become dire enough that Governor Doug Ducey declared a public health crisis.

To help you, your team, and your patience, below you’ll find a host of unfettered, practical resources that will provide insight as well as education for your patients about the dangers of opioids. As of October 16, 2017, there is new government mandate to check the Prescription Monitoring Database—most dentists don’t know about. Make sure you’re in the know by taking advantage of the information provided below.
