Michigan Board of Dentistry

The Michigan Board of Dentistry was originally formed with the enactment of Public Act 122 of 1919 and regulated the practice of dentistry and dental hygiene and authorizing dental assistants.
 
In 1978, this authority was transferred to the Public Health Code, Public Act 368 of 1978, as amended, and included certification of specialists in the fields of orthodontics, endodontics, prosthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and oral pathology.
 
The Michigan Board of Dentistry consists of 19 voting members: 8 dentists, 2 dental specialists, 4 hygienists, 2 registered dental assistants, and 3 public members..
