Welcome to the Maine Board of Dental Practice

Given the COVID-19 health emergency, social distancing and other precautions in compliance with Maine CDC recommendations, we are restricting access to the Board Office to employees. For the safety of the public and our staff, we are requesting that all parties use our online, email or telephone services to transact business, make inquiries or file complaints. During this time, we intend to continue to deliver high quality services to regulated community and to the general public while focusing on delivering those services remotely. Links to COVID-19 information from State and Federal Sources are available here. Thank you for your understanding.

The Maine Board of Dental Practice is a state regulatory agency and was established to protect the public through the regulation of individuals practicing in the dental profession. The primary responsibilities of the Board are to examine and license qualified applicants for licensure in categories of dentists, dental hygienists, dental radiographers, dental therapists, denturists, expanded function dental assistants, issue sedation permits to qualified licensees; to inspect dental practices; and to investigate complaints against licensees and take appropriate disciplinary action.
