Licensure by credentials
Relocating to a different state? You may be able to obtain a new license based on your credentials, without further exams.
Military personnel and families
Many states have modified their licensure requirements for active duty military personnel, military spouses and veterans of the armed services. These modifications take many forms, and vary from state to state. Some states even assign an advisor or liaison to assist with the process. Depending on the state and situation, licenses for military personnel, spouses and veterans may be:
- Expedited, continued, or extended
- Reactivated or reinstated after expiration
- Subject to reduced or waived fees
- Eligible for temporary or provisional status
Faculty and volunteers
Faculty and volunteer licensure may go by many different names: limited, special, restricted, provisional or temporary volunteer license. These licenses may require a separate application, and the state dental board may limit where licensed faculty or volunteers can practice.
