OHA Temporary Rulemaking – Vaccination Requirements for Healthcare Providers

To prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19, all Oregon healthcare providers and healthcare staff must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or request an exception by October 18, 2021.
The new regulations are administered and enforced by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA).  The rules apply to all OBD licensees who provide direct patient care or have the potential for exposure to patients. For additional details on the vaccination requirements, and religious or medical exceptions, please review the  Healthcare Provider and Healthcare Staff Vaccine Rule FAQs and the full text of the OHA rule, OAR 333-019-1010. Questions may be directed to the Oregon Health Authority at


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.
