AzDA's Audio Amalgam podcast is a bi-weekly to monthly update from the Executive Director of the Arizona Dental Association (AzDA) as well as AzDA members, programs, and community leaders.

This exclusive member dentist benefit takes a deeper dive into the current issues, obstacles, and opportunities dentists in Arizona face on a day-to-day basis, including: hot button issues, advocacy and new legislation, BODEX and the Dental Practice Act, licensure, business advice, AzDA member benefits, member dentist guest features, Q&As, and even roundtable discussions.

This is practical, applicable, and insider advice that member dentists practicing in Arizona absolutely need to know.
