Jeff Puckett started his law enforcement career at the Norman Police Department in 1992. During his distinguished 21-year career with Norman PD, Jeff spent 13 years in the department’s Special Investigative Division (SID) working on hundreds of cases involving street to high-level narcotics traffickers.

From 2002 to 2007, Jeff was assigned to the Oklahoma City DEA Task Force where he worked in an undercover capacity on major drug investigations, seizing of millions of dollars, and hundreds of pounds of illegal narcotics.

In 2008, Jeff became the first diversion investigator at Norman PD and worked on all types of cases from doctor shoppers and script forgers to taking enforcement actions against pharmacies, pharmacists, and medical providers. Jeff also started a training program with the Norman Regional Hospital in which he trained doctors, nurses, and other staff members in drug diversion and opioid abuse.

Jeff also routinely gave community presentations to schools and various community groups about the dangers of drug use, the methods utilized by drug traffickers and drug users to conceal, sell, and ingest illegal narcotics.  Jeff is certified by the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training (CLEET) as an instructor and has over 1500 hours of law enforcement training.

Jeff was hired as an investigator with the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry in 2018 and was promoted to Deputy Director of the agency in 2020. IN the Fall of 2019 Jeff began and educational program with the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry and since the program started Jeff has given hundreds of lectures on opioid abuse and ethics all across Oklahoma.   Jeff was inducted into the Oklahoma Law Enforcement Hall of Fame in 2021 and is also a past recipient of the Norman PD Officer of the Year Award.  Jeff is a member of the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI), and the Association of Oklahoma Narcotics Enforcers (AONE).  Jeff also serves on the Executive Board for AONE and was voted by his peers as the Region 1 Officer of the Year for AONE in 2009.

Jeff has been married to his lovely wife Lori for 28 years and they have one daughter, Abby, who is in Physical Therapy School at KU School of Medicine.


Course Title – Opioid Abuse

Course Length – 2 hours

The opioid abuse course will start with a history of opioid use and abuse in the United States and end with what practitioners can do to make their practices better. In between the course covers current data on how opioids are prescribed in Oklahoma, covers national trends on opioid prescribing, reviews Federal/ State law as they pertain to opioid prescribing and reviews the State Dental Act and how it pertains to opioid prescribing. The course provides attendees on how the pharmaceutical companies played a role in the opioid epidemic. The course also provides attendees with case studies on the effectiveness of alternative medicines to use other than opioids.


Course Title – Ethics in Dentistry

Course Length – 2 hours

Ethics in Dentistry was originally designed to meet the one hour mandated CE for hygienists and dentists, but it is a good course for all dental clinic employees to attend. The course will define ethics, cover what ethics aren’t, and will cover actual case studies of recent Board investigations. The 2-hour course incorporates the material from the 1-hour course but I have added the recent legislation about the new hygiene expanded duties and other legislation as it applies to the State Dental Act.
