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, 2016, may now renew their licenses online with a credit card.

Your license renewal payment must be complete no later than 11:59 PM December 31, 2016, to avoid a late fee. Your license is not considered renewed until your payment has been processed.

You must also report continuing education you completed between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2016.  Your completed CE reporting is due by January 31, 2017.  Please see below regarding your options for reporting your CE. 

Your License ID is your license number and your PIN is the last 4 digits of your SSN.



Once you have renewed your license, you may log back in at any time through the Licensee Login page to print your latest license renewal certificate and any applicable permits.



All renewing licensees must report their completed continuing education no later than January 31.  You may report this one of two ways: online through CE Broker at www.cebroker.com or with a paper CE reporting form that must be mailed to the Board office.  Those licensees wishing to report this on the paper form may find it on the "Forms" page here.

The Louisiana State Board of Dentistry now accepts proof of your continuing education submitted online through CE Broker.  This will allow you to keep track of your continuing education on an ongoing basis as well as negate the need for random CE audits.  CE Broker will keep a record of your CE attendance and provide you with information indicating your progress in meeting your requirements.  The Board will automatically receive a report of those licensees who have completed their requirements.  There is no charge to our licensees for the basic service through CE Broker. For more information or to create your account in CE Broker, please visit CEBroker.com/la/account_options.

Although the use of the online CE tracking is not mandatory, licensees are strongly encouraged to track their CE through CE Broker as this will easily keep your information all in one place.  Additionally, if the report in CE Broker indicates you have met your CE requirements, you will not be subject to the audit for CE compliance.

Those licensees who do not report their CE through CE Broker must complete the paper form which may be found on the Forms page.  The completed form must be postmarked back to the Board office no later than January 31, 2017.  Licensees who do not report through CE Broker will be subject to the audit for CE compliance in the future.
