The Oregon Board of Dentistry has done primary source verification of the Licensee's initial education leading to her/his eligibility for licensure since at least 1987.  The information contained on this web site is the same information provided through other means, i.e., telephone, email or mail and is true and complete to the best of our knowledge.

Information Regarding Board Action:
Copies of final Board action regarding individual Licensees are available on-line.  If you are unable to print this, please contact us at

Information Regarding Malpractice Claims:

Malpractice claim information is compiled by the Oregon Board of Dentistry from claim reports it receives from primary insurers; public bodies required to defend, save harmless and indemnify an officer, employee or agent of the public; a self-insured entity; or a health maintenance organization. Claim reporting and disclosure requirements are governed by ORS 742.400.

The settlement of a medical malpractice claim may occur for a variety of reasons that do not necessarily reflect negatively on the professional competence or conduct of the provider. Therefore, there may be no disciplinary action appearing for a licensee, even though there is a closed malpractice claim on file. A payment in the settlement of a medical malpractice action does not create a presumption that medical malpractice occurred. Malpractice information provided on a record represents information from reporters to date. Please note: Not all reporters may have submitted claim information to the Board.
