Welcome to the Dental Homepage

The Colorado Dental Board regulates and licenses dentists and dental hygienists. The Board does not regulate or require the registration of dental assistants or expanded duty dental assistants. The Board also does not license based upon specialty.

The mission of the Colorado Dental Board is to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the people of Colorado by developing and maintaining rules and policies to ensure that only qualified persons are licensed to provide dental care and that violators of the laws and rules regulating dentistry 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 is made up of thirteen members: six dentists, three dental hygienists and three public members.
