The Oregon Board of Dentistry has mailed out our random audit letters. CE Audits for those selected for random audit were mailed in early December, a month prior to the renewal notices. Only 15% of the dental licensees due to renew are audited by the Board. This is a random audit and the individuals selected are chosen by a computer program. It IS statistically possible to be audited multiple years in a row.
Dental Renewal reminder postcards were mailed January 23, 2013. You do not need a postcard to renew your license if it is due. Just follow the link below on this page from January 23 on. You will need to provide the following information in order to access your renewal via the Boards' online renewal process:
