Board of Dentistry

Dentists were one of the first professions regulated by the Department upon its creation in 1917. Dental hygienists were added in 1945 and dental specialists in 1947. The practice of dentistry means the healing art which is concerned with the examination, diagnosis, treatment planning, and care of conditions within the human oral cavity and adjacent tissues and structures. The Board is composed of eleven members appointed by the Secretary, consisting of eight licensed dentists, two licensed dental hygienists, and one public member. The Board is charged with making recommendations to the Secretary in establishing guidelines for professional conduct, conducting of formal disciplinary proceedings brought under the Act, and establishing guidelines for qualifications of applicants.
