How to get licensed

Dental health professionals must apply for and renew their licenses with the Department of Health. The Rhode Island Board of Examiners in Dentistry ensures that all dentists and dental hygienists practicing in Rhode Island meet the requirements for licensure and comply with the applicable conditions and regulations of the law.
