State Boards of Dentistry

"The state board of dentistry (also known as board of dental examiners) is an agency of state government created by the state legislature. This agency governs the qualifications for and the practice of dentistry within the state. The board’s authority is limited to that granted by the state legislature and typically includes

1.  establishment of qualifications for licensure,

2.  issuance of licenses to qualified individuals,

3.  establishment of standards of practice and conduct,

4.  taking disciplinary action against those who engage in misconduct, and

5.  promulgation of rules to enable the board to perform its duties.

 State boards are composed of members of the profession and the public.

The state dental board is the appropriate agency to contact for the most current and up-to-date information about licensure requirements, the state dental practice act, or other licensure-related information." *State Board information can be found on the(AADB) Web site

State Dental Licensure Requirements for U.S. Dentists

 In the United States, the final authority on licensure requirements is the individual state. Though requirements vary from state to state, all applicants for dental licensure must meet three basic requirements; an education requirement, a written examination requirement and a clinical examination requirement.

The ADA offers some guiding information on State Licensure Requirements.
