Dental Licenses

Learn how to apply for initial licensure as a dentist and/or renew an existing dental license. This page doesn't apply to initial licensure as a limited license dental intern, limited license dental faculty member, dental hygienist, or dental assistant.

Here you can apply for your initial license as a dentist by examination or by credential. You can also apply for your individual anesthesia/sedation permit and/or a facility anesthesia/sedation permit. These resources are specific to dentists, limited license dental interns, and limited license dental faculty members. These resources don't apply to dental hygienists or dental assistants. If you need help with these areas, please see our related services for the correct pages.
