TDDD- Update as of March 10, 2017


A Terminal Distributor of Dangerous Drugs (TDDD) is a person (individual, partnership, association, limited liability company, corporation or government agency) who is engaged in the sale of dangerous drugs at retail, or any person, other than a wholesale distributor or a pharmacist, who has possession, custody, or control of dangerous drugs for any purpose other than for that person’s own use and consumption.

Sites licensed as TDDDs include, but are not limited to, pharmacies, hospitals, nursing homes, emergency medical service organizations, laboratories and all other locations that procure dangerous drugs for sale or other distribution by or under the supervision of a pharmacist or licensed health professional authorized to prescribe drugs.

If you hold a General Anesthesia or IV Conscious Sedation Permit with the Ohio State Dental Board, on January 4, 2017, Governor Kasich signed House Bill 319, which requires all locations which possess controlled substances to obtain a Terminal Distributor of Dangerous Drugs (TDDD) license with the Ohio Board of Pharmacy.  Please review the Guidance Document which was published by the Ohio Board of Pharmacy and the Terminal Distributor of Dangerous Drugs License Application, which are attached to this email.

If you have additional questions about this license, you should contact the Ohio Board of Pharmacy at 614-466-4143 or via email at  For any unresolved questions, please contact the Dental Board at 614-466-2580 or via email
