The Board of Dental Examiners of Maryland was established to ensure that every dentist and dental hygienist practicing in this state meets minimum requirements for safe practice. The practice of these professions is a privilege granted by the State. The Board of Dental Examiners is responsible for licensure, monitoring and ensuring the safe practice of dentists and dental hygienists in their service to the people of Maryland.

The Maryland Board Of Dental Examiners oversees licensed individuals who provide dental services within the state. You can contact the board if you have questions or need to renew your Maryland dentist license. The state dental board also accepts complaints against licensed and unlicensed individuals, investigates allegations, and takes disciplinary actions for violations of law. The goal of the Maryland board of dentistry is to protect the oral health, safety and welfare of citizens.

The Mission of the Board of Dental Examiners is to protect the citizens of Maryland and to promote quality health care in the field of dentistry by:

  • Licensing and regulating the practice of dentistry, dental hygiene, and dental radiation technology.
  • Receiving and resolving complaints against licensees who may have violated the Dental Practice Act and its regulations.
  • Setting standards for the practice of dentistry, dental hygiene, and dental radiation technologists that reflect new and emergent developments in the profession through regulations and legislation.

We suggest to check out the state dental board website as they may now offer online services such as filing a complaint, to see if a licensee needs to renew a license or make a name or address change, to see if an applicant is seeking a permit or license or if a consumer is trying to find out information about an Maryland licensed dentist. You can visit their site online.
