Verify License

Licensee Lookup

All Licensees no matter what their status i.e., active, deceased, expired, retired, resigned are available in the Licensee Lookup system.  

Applicants who have not been licensed by the Board and have had formal Board Action can be found in the Licensee Lookup System.
If a Licensee is NOT on this lookup screen that you believe should be listed, please contact us.
This information is updated daily and every effort is made to assure that it is accurate.

Primary Source Verification

We have 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, e-mail or mail, and is true and complete to the best of our knowledge.

Written Verification of Licensure

The Board will only provide written verification of licensure, for those licensees who are no longer licensed in Oregon, and who have not had Board Action taken against them.  All other licensees are listed on our online license verification system, and is available to the public, licensing boards and other entities at all times.  Please contact us at with any questions.

Information Regarding Board Action

Copies of final Board actions regarding individual Licensees are available on-line. If you are unable to print this information, please contact us.
If you need certified copies of final Board actions you must put your request in writing.
Cost: $0.50 per page, plus postage, if more than ten pages. (Once the order is received, you will be notified if there is a charge. Prepayment is required.)

Information Regarding Malpractice Claims (For Insurance Companies Only)

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
