Looking for a new plumber, barber or a doctor? You may want to look on Utah's Right first.

We've updated our database to the end of January 2013. The database lists disciplinary actions taken by the state Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing against licensed professionals in the state.

The database, which goes back to October 2008, lists 1,889 professionals who have received some sanction from the state. The sanctions range from public reprimands to revoking licenses. The list includes 786 construction contractors, 272 nurses, 139 pharmacists or pharmacies, 85 physicians, 80 cosmetologists and barbers, 77 massage therapists and hundreds of records on other licensed professions.

Among the more notorious entries in the list are Dr. Dewey Mackay and Dea Milerberg.

Mackay, a Brigham City physician, was convicted on two counts of distribution of a controlled substance that resulted in death, , three counts of use of communication facility in a drug trafficking offense and 35 counts of distribution of a controlled substances. Prosecutors said Mackay prescribed more than 1.9 million hydrocodone pills and 1.6 million oxycodone pills between June 1, 2005 and Oct. 31, 2009.

Millerberg, a nurse, is charged with desecration of a human corpse and drug possession, in connection with the death of 16-year-old Alexis Rasmussen in September 2011.
