Licensees on this lookup site are active with the exception that expired, retired, resigned, and revoked Licensees will appear on this site if they have had Board action taken against their license.
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 provide written verification of licensure, which contains the following information about Licensees of the Board: license number, date issued, status of the license (active, retired, expired), expiration date of license, dental school or dental hygiene program, date of graduation, specialty, endorsements (for dental hygienists), anesthesia permits, mailing address, business address, and disciplinary action taken. (This verification does not have the Board’s Official Seal on it.)
Cost: $2.50 per name
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 requested.)
*For written verification of licensure or for copies of Board actions, use the Licensee Information Request found under "Forms & Brochures" on this Web site.
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
INFORMATION REGARDING DENTAL ASSISTANTS:
The Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) certifies dental assistants for the Oregon expanded functions and radiologic proficiency. Certification information is available on the DANB Web site at http://www.danb.org/home/The-Dental-Community/Credential-Verification.aspx.
