Thanks to the generosity of DentaQuest (contributing $100,000) and Envolve/Arizona Complete Health (contributing $100,000), the Arizona Dental Association (AzDA) has put together this registration page allowing licensed Arizona dentists, who register, to receive FREE Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The type and amount of PPE that each registered dentist receives will be determined at the sponsors’ discretion. Beyond DentaQuest, Envolve/Arizona Complete Health, and AzDA, special thanks go to the Arizona Board of Dental Examiners (BODEX), AHCCCS, and the Arizona Association of Health Plans for helping coordinate this PPE initiative. To successfully register for PPE below, there are a total of three pages, so make sure you see the confirmation page (pg. 3) and receive a confirmation email.
Please be sure to provide the correct information and register by August 31, 2020.

Mary DeLaat Williams (pictured to the right of Heather Hardy, RDH, Board President) served the Arizona State Board of Dental Examiners, as its general counsel, from 1994 – 2019. The Board greatly appreciates her time and energy that she put in to serve the Board and the dental profession. She has been a valuable asset for 25 years and will be missed.
