Alaska's Prescription Drug Monitoring Program

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING PDMP FEES:

Beginning April 22, 2018, an initial registration fee will be required to access the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) for practitioners and pharmacists registering with the database for the first time. Practitioners and pharmacists who are already registered with the PDMP do not have to submit an initial registration fee. The renewal fee for the PDMP will coincide with each licensing board’s professional license renewal date. License renewal dates can be found HERE. The forms to make these payments, additional information, and FAQs regarding PDMP fees will be available on April 20. For more information on the PDMP, please visit: PDMP.ALASKA.GOV

Important Notice Regarding Telemedicine:

Following SB74, businesses engaged in the practice of telemedicine are required to register for placement on the Telemedicine Business Registry (TBR) through the Professional Licensing Section. Please click HERE to access the application and additional information regarding the registry. Please note that the application is for businesses rather than individual licensees to register; if you have any questions regarding scope of practice requirements or limitations regarding telemedicine, please contact the Board or program’s Occupational Licensing Examiner.


The Board of Dental Examiners is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing. The board consists of six dentists, two dental hygienists, and one public member. Board members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Legislature.

The board adopts regulations to carry out laws governing the practice of dentistry and dental hygiene in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. The board meets four times a year and offers a public comment period at each meeting. Meeting agendas and minutes are available from the licensing examiner and will be posted to this website once prepared.
