Welcome to the Louisiana State Board of Dentistry

Our mission is to protect the public by regulating the professions of dentistry
and dental hygiene in Louisiana in accordance with the Dental Practice Act.



The meeting of the Louisiana State Board of Dentistry will now take place at 1:00 PM, Friday, August 18.  It was previously scheduled for 2:00 PM but has been moved up one hour. You may view the updated board meeting notice here.

The joint meeting of the Licensing and Credentials, Anesthesia, and Continuing Education committees will now take place at 12:00 PM, Friday, August 18.
You may view the updated committee meeting notice here.


All Louisiana licensees may now log in at any time to make certain changes to their information (name, address, licensed employees, etc.) on file with the Board.  Additionally, once you have renewed your license for the 2017-2018 period, you may log in at any time to print your latest license renewal certificate and any applicable current permits.

Please visit the Licensee Login page for more information.



The Louisiana State Board of Dentistry accepts proof of licensees' continuing education submitted online through CE Broker.  CE Broker will keep a record of your CE attendance and provide you with information indicating your progress in meeting your requirements.  This allows you to keep track of your continuing education on an ongoing basis as well as negates the need for random CE audits.

Your individual requirements (anesthesia, clinical, personally attended, BLS, etc.) have been submitted to CE Broker.  Some CE providers report course attendance on your behalf directly to CE Broker; for those CE providers who do not report directly, you will upload images of your own certificates.  Once you have completed your CE requirements for the current license cycle, you will see a "complete" message in your CE Broker record.  Completions are then forwarded to the Board, and licensees who are complete are exempt from any CE audit for that particular license period.

We suggest you submit your CE course completion certificates on an ongoing basis as you take courses.  This will enable you to better track your compliance prior to the end of your license term.

There is no charge to our licensees for the basic account through CE Broker, although there are additional paid account options that may better enable you to keep track of both your requirements and your progress.
