Recently, SB 1377 was passed by the Arizona Senate, and is being considered by the House. The bill seeks to establish dental therapists in the state, and authorize them to perform some surgical procedures under just general supervision of a dentist.
We are contacting you today to ask you to reach out to your Representative and ask them to oppose the bill should it come up for a vote.
To send a pre-written form letter to your State Representative, please follow this link. If you are able to set up a meeting to discuss the issue with your legislator or their staff, please consider doing so. We can assist you by providing materials and talking points, should you schedule a meeting.
Please take action today to ensure the voice of general dentistry is heard and to help protect the quality of oral health care provided to Arizona patients!
