Feel like the Arizona State Board of Dental Examiners (BODEX) is kind of a mystery? Wonder how it really works and what to do if you're contacted by them. In this episode, we're featuring two dentists who know it inside and out: 

Dr. Anthony Caputo is a Dentist Anesthesiologist—practicing in Arizona since 1997. He has been involved with BODEX for over 20 years serving as a sedation and anesthesia evaluator, consultant and committee member. Currently, Dr. Caputo serves on the Investigative Committee and is the Chair of the committee. He is passionate about educating dentists to understand how BODEX functions and operates from the perspective of avoiding or preventing Board complaints.

Dr. Anthony Herro is the current president of BODEX, chair of the Anesthesia and Sedation Committee, and upcoming chair of the ADAs Joint Commission on National Dental Examinations. He is a native of Phoenix Az, and has been a licensed general dentist since 2005.  His practice focuses on anesthesia, multidisciplinary care, and special needs dentistry.
