Licensure Information by State

State Licensure Tables

The ADA attempts to keep this information current based on information from state dental boards, clinical testing agencies and state dental associations.  Individuals seeking dental licensure are strongly urged to consult with the state board of dentistry and their professional advisors for current dental licensure information.

Click on the state name in the table below to download a PDF that contains information about licensure for dentists. This includes both licensure by examination and licensure by credentials.

Definition of the terms such as CRDTS, CITA, CIF exams, PGY1, OSCE, and other abbreviations used in the tables can be found on the Licensure Pathways website page.
