With help from Tony Semerad, the Tribune’s computer-assisted reporting editor, we’ve updated the professional licensing disciplinary database on UtahsRight.com. The database shows actions the state Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing has taken against doctors, nurses, contractors, cosmetologists and other licensed professionals who have violated the law or professional codes. This latest update covers the period between December 2011 and November 2012.

• 297 in the construction industry.
• 92 nursing professionals.
• 51 pharmacists or pharmacies.
• 40 physicians and/or surgeons.
• 32 cosmetologist/barbers.
• 21 massage therapists.
• 16 dental professionals.
The database is searchable by city, profession, individual’s name and company name. Let us know what you think, or how you’ve used the information.
