Arizona updates rules for dentists and Botox
Dentists in Arizona can administer Botox and dermal fillers as long as it is part of a dental treatment plan, according to a Substantive Policy Statement update issued in June by the Arizona State Board of Dental Examiners. According to the updated statement, "a dentist may inject pharmacological agents such as Botulinum, Toxin Type A, or dermal fillers as supportive therapy in conjunction with a dental treatment plan consistent with the scope of practice." The statement also makes it clear that such agents cannot not be administered outside a dental treatment plan.
