Registration to Dispense Drugs and Devices

Pursuant to A.A.C. R4-11-1406, a dentist licensed to practice in Arizona may dispense controlled substances, prescription-only drugs and/or prescription-only devices for profit if the dentist completes a registration approved by the Board and submits a copy of their DEA Certificate of Registration. 

Dispense means the delivery by a dentist of a prescription drug or device to a patient, except for samples packaged for individual use by licensed manufacturers or repackagers of drugs, and includes the prescribing, administering, packaging, labeling and security necessary to prepare and safeguard the drug or device for delivery.

Dentists may dispense drugs, except Schedule II controlled substances that are opioids.
