Dental Licensure Map

The Dental Licensure Map is here and available to use! The ADA attempts to keep the Dental Licensure Map information current based on information from state dental boards, clinical testing agencies and state dental associations. Individuals seeking dental licensure are strongly urged to use the Dental Licensure Map as well as consult with the respective state board of dentistry for additional information.

Select or hover over a state on the Dental Licensure Map and see which exams or credentials are accepted. You can also select a state and download a PDF that contains information about licensure for dentists. This includes both licensure by examination and licensure by credentials.

Check out the new interactive dental licensure map that allows users to easily identify initial licensure requirements through customized searches. Users can also select a state and download a PDF containing additional information on licensure by credentials, specialty practice and continuing education requirements.
