Temporary Rules Implemented April 17, 2015

At its April 17, 2015 meeting, the Board approved the following temporary rules regarding adding prescriptive authority for dental hygienists back to the Dental Hygiene rules. These temporary rules are in effect now, and will remain in effect until permanent rules can be implemented. The Board is planning on having a public rulemaking hearing on permanently implementing this rule and a number of other rule changes on August 27, 2015. More information on these future proposed rule changes will be forthcoming.

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.
