Licensure

General Information about Licensure
A dental hygienist is a licensed healthcare professional. Licensure is designed to protect the public from unqualified individuals and unsafe practice. Licensure is the strongest form of regulation used today. In accordance with state law, licensed individuals are the only persons meeting the minimum qualifications necessary to practice their profession.

The Georgia Board of Dentistry has been moved to the Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH), effective July 1, 2013.

New this year, dentists and dental hygienists seeking to renew their professional licenses will be required to submit proof of citizenship or legal residency. You can submit that documentation now! There is no requirement that you wait to submit this citizenship documentation with your license renewal information later this year. Read more...

Current Information about Dental Hygienist Licensure may be obtained from the Georgia Board of Dentistry Web Site: gbd.georgia.gov
