Online License Renewal

Renewal

During the 2021 Legislative session, Senate Bill 1013 passed and was signed by the Governor with an effective date of 1/1/2022. What’s this mean to you? This new law amends the expiration date of all dental licenses from 6/30 every three years to the licensee's birthday every three years. On or before your birthday of the year your license expires, you will be required to submit your renewal application and pay the renewal fee. Your license will expire 30 days after your birthday if your application is not received and your renewal fee is not paid. Even with this new change, the renewal process will not include the mail and delivery of applications to your address of record for you to complete and return. The renewal process will only be online.

 

Triennial Renewal Fee

  • In accordance with A.R.S. §§ 32-1236, 32-1276.02, 32-1287 and 32- 1297.06, the Board voted and approved on April 2, 2021 to reduce the current triennial renewal fee by 60% for the 2021, 2022 and 2023 renewal cycles. 
  • The NEW triennial renewal fee for a dentist is $204.00, a hygienist is $102.00 and a denturist is $93.20. We encourage you to visit the Board’s website to make the payment for the triennial renewal license when you renew. Please do not remit payment without also completing a renewal application. 

 

Continuing Education and Late Fees

At its November 5, 2021 meeting, the Board voted to grant continuing education ("CE") extensions and late fee waivers until 6/30/2022 for all renewal applicants whose birthdays are between 1/1/2022 - 6/30/2022. Therefore, you must still complete your renewal and make your renewal payment, but you will have until 6/30/2022 to complete your required CE and you will not incur a late fee penalty if you submit your required CE on or before 6/30/2022. Any renewal applicant who fails to submit a renewal application, fails to pay the renewal fee and/or fails to complete and submit the required CE on or before 6/30/2022, their license will expire on 7/1/2022. The receipt of any renewal application on 7/1/2022 or thereafter will also incur a late fee in addition to the renewal application fee.

Continuing Education Affidavits

On your respective renewal application, please select one of the boxes regarding your continuing education (“CE”) and proceed to complete the CE affidavit. 

If this is your first time renewing (initial license issuance date was between 7/1/2021 and your birthday in 2022), please check the box indicating that this is your first renewal, and therefore, no CE affidavit is required. Please complete the continuing education ("CE") affidavit that pertains to your license classification.

DO - Review the Board's rules or your respective affidavit on your CE requirements;

DO - Claim only the credit hours taken July 1, 2019 - birthday of 2022 or June 30, 2022 if your birthday is between 1/1/2022 and 6/30/2022;

DON'T - Claim more hours of self-study than allowed on your affidavit, which has already been tailored to the allowable limit; and

DON'T - Throw away your documentation of attendance. The Board's rules require that you maintain your documentation for the most recently completed renewal period.
