Dental license renewal is available starting the week of Jan. 15, 2018, through the Colorado Dental Board website. All Colorado dentist and dental hygienist licenses must be renewed by Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018. If you have not already done so, renew your state dental license before it expires. Dentists and dental hygienists are not permitted to practice dentistry without a current license. Click on “Renew a License” on the Colorado Dental Board website to get started.

The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) administers the license renewal process. All license renewal notices will be emailed this year, so be sure the email address you have on file with the dental board is up-to-date. You can update your contact information, including your email address, on the dental board website. The email DORA will send is your renewal notice and will contain additional instructions on how to renew your license.
