2018 Missouri License Renewal
In early September, the Department of Professional Registration mailed dental and dental hygiene license renewal notice postcards (thus arriving the week of September 3). The process is the same as the last several renewal periods, in that the postcard will have a PIN number to enable them to renew online. This year the fee for dental license renewals has been lowered to $100 (hygiene fees are $60). Please note, if you have moved since the 2016 renewal, you are advised to go online and ensure your address on file is correct. For questions, contact the Missouri Dental Board at 573-751-0040.
Current CE Reporting Period
The current reporting period for the Missouri Dental Board CDE requirement began on 12/1/16 and ends 11/30/18. It is the responsibility of the dentist to retain proof of continuing education. Of the 50 C.E. hours required for dentists (30 for hygienists), 10 hours (5 for hygienists) may be in management; the remainder must be technical. Any hours acquired beyond the required number may be carried forward into the next time block, not to exceed 25 hours for dentists (15 hours for hygienists).

Dentists are required to retain records documenting completion of the required hours of continuing education for a minimum of six (6) years after the reporting period in which the continuing education was completed.
