Welcome to the Michigan Board of Dentistry website! Our goal is to provide up-to-date information on various topics related to the practice of dentistry in Michigan. We hope you find this information helpful and invite you to check out our website often.
** We are no longer accepting paper applications for Dentistry Licenses. You can apply online at www.michigan.gov/miplus. Our online system provides more efficient services to those applying for a Dentistry license. If you are having problems completing the application process, please contact us at 517-241-0199 for assistance and we can help walk you through the process. Should you have further questions, please contact our Licensing Support Team at BPLHelp@michigan.gov.
In an effort to reduce the use of paper, effective January 1, 2022, licenses issued or renewed will only be sent electronically unless a paper copy of the license is requested during the application or renewal process.
