Licensing and Regulatory Affairs
Dental professions have until September 1, 2020, 11:59 pm to qualify for the exam waiver for their written if the administration of the exam was cancelled due to the emergency. Individuals who apply after 12:00 am on September 2, 2020 for a dental professional license will not be eligible for an exam waiver for their written exam. We will continue to waive practical exams where they are currently not being offered for dental professions.
