Dental License Renewal 

Dentists with a March 31, 2022 expiration date are able to renew their license from May 1, 2022 to May 30, 2022 with a $100 delinquent fee. Please be advised that it is a violation of the law to practice dentistry with an expired license. If you are experiencing issues with registration, please visit the "New Licensing System" tab above to troubleshoot before contacting Board staff. 

The Board voted to change 22 rules and create one new rule at the Oct 22, 2021 Board Meeting.

The following 17 rule changes and one new rule went into effect January 1, 2022
Five rule changes were voted to go into effect July 1, 2022.


BLS/CPR and/or ACLS/PALS
Please be aware that all Licensees must comply with the requirement to maintain a current and valid BLS/CPR for Healthcare Providers (and/or ACLS/PALS certificates if necessary for your anesthesia permit requirements). These must be maintained at all times while licensed by the Oregon Board of Dentistry.
*Reminder - Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and/or Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) do not serve as a substitute for Healthcare Provider Basic Life Support (BLS).

Beware of Scammers

The DEA and the OBD are aware of various scammers claiming to be Board staff to gain confidential information and possibly extort Licensees for money or information. The OBD will never ask for payment by phone or email.
