DOH Introduces Online Renewal Program for Dental Practitioners
On August 16th, the Department of Health added ten additional professions to their online renewal program including Dentists, Dental Residents, Dentist General Anesthesia (DEAP), UW Dental Faculty, Dentist Moderate Sedation (DEMP), Dentist Moderate Sedation with Parenteral Agents (DESP) and Postdoctoral Dental Residents.
To renew your license online visit the Department of Health website and set up an online payment account. There will be a $2 convenience fee added on to each transaction to help cover the costs of the new online program. Once the transaction has been submited a paper credential will be sent by mail and should arrive within ten business days.
Be advised that certain circumstances might prohibit practitioners from renewing their license online. Credential holders will not be able to renew online if their credential is expired, if their license is inactive or if they have changed either their name or address.
Please be sure your contact information is current with the Department of Health. Your mailing address must be current to renew online. If your address has changed please complete and submit the DOH address change form.
Dental assistants, hygienists and EFDA's were added to the online renewal program back in June. Please visit our June 19 blog post for more information.
