Colorado Dental Board

The Colorado Dental Board is under the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies’ Division of Professions and Occupations. The board regulates and licenses dentists and dental hygienists. Colorado does not regulate or require the registration of dental assistants or expanded duty dental assistants.

According to their website, their mission is to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of Coloradoans by developing and maintaining rules and policies to ensure that only qualified persons are licensed to provide dental care and that violators are sanctioned, as appropriate.

Board activities include licensing dentists and dental hygienists, investigating complaints about the licensed and unlicensed practice of dentistry and dental hygiene, disciplining those who violate the law and/or the Board’s rules and make, amend, and adopt reasonable rules and regulations governing the conduct of dentists and dental hygienists.

The board has thirteen members: six dentists, three dental hygienists, and three public members. Visit their website for a list of members and their terms.

  • Apply for a new license.
  • Search for a license.
  • File a complaint.
  • Participate in a board meeting or hearing.
