Alaska Statutes are passed by the Legislature. Regulations (also called the Alaska Administrative Code) are rules adopted by the board to implement, interpret, and make specific the statutes. Both statutes and regulations have the force of law.
AS 08.36, AS 08.32, and regulations 12 AAC 28 specifically govern the practice of dentistry and dental hygiene. AS 08.01 - 08.03 and regulations 12 AAC 02 apply to all professions regulated by the division.
Proposed regulations are advertised in Alaska newspapers and we invite public comment on them. If you would like to receive notice of proposed regulations, you must contact the Regulations Specialist, Jun Maiquis at (907) 465-2537, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and request that your name be added to the Dental interested parties list. Please advise us if you move or wish your name removed from the mailing list.
