2015-2017 Dental Renewal Information
Dental renewal postcards were mailed January 16, 2015. Your postcard is not required to renew your license.
The Board has moved to an online renewal process. You will not need any special codes to access your online renewal. Once you have accessed your online renewal application, you will be able to complete the process entirely online. If you should need to stop in the middle of the process, your information up to that point will be saved and you can return at a later date to complete the process. You will be able to pay online with a credit card or you can choose to print your completed renewal and mail it to the PO Box with a check or money order.
There will be no exception for the online process. If you do not have access to a computer, you can visit the local public library, a family member or friend, or even visit the Board office.
If you are ready to renew, please follow the link below.
Infection Control Requirement
The Oregon Board of Dentistry (OBD) sent an email to all licensees clarifying the new OBD infection control continuing education rule. After January 1, 2015, licensees who renew their dental or dental hygiene licenses will be required to have completed at least 2 hours of continuing education related to infection control.
The OBD is receiving inquires regarding the new infection control continuing education requirement. Licensees are questioning of OSHA course would fulfill this requirement. The answer is "yes" IF the OSHA course has at least two hours of instruction in infection control. please note that your course completion certificate would need to delineate how many hours were devoted to OSHA instruction and how many hours were devoted to infection control.
