Oregon Board of Dentistry > Web site
The Oregon Board of Dentistry, created in 1887, administers the Dental Practice Act and rules of the board, establishes standards for licensure, and examines and licenses dentists and dental hygienists. The board regulates the use of anesthesia in the dental office and certifies dental assistants in radiologic proficiency and expanded functions. The board investigates alleged violations of the Dental Practice Act and may discipline licensees.
Members of the Board of Dentistry are appointed by the governor, confirmed by the Senate, and serve four-year terms. There are ten board members: six dentists, one of whom must be a specialist, two dental hygienists and two public members.
The board is supported solely by revenues received from licensees, including application, license, permit and certification fees.
