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.



Dentists and hygienists whose licenses expire December 31, 2015, may now renew their licenses online with a credit card here. To renew your license with a check or money order, you must submit a paper license renewal application. Please contact the Board office to have a paper renewal application mailed to you.

Renewing licensees must also complete a CE reporting form and mail it to the Board office no later than January 31, 2016.  You may find this form on the "Forms" page here.


As of August 1, 2015, the board will pre-approve dentists' advertisements.  If you would like to have your advertisement reviewed and pre-approved, please send a written request along with a copy of the ad and a check or money order for $150. 

Please contact the office at 504-568-8574 should you have any questions.
