Dentist and Dental Assistant
This licensee search accesses the Board's current licensee population, consisting of dentists, specialists, general anesthesia permit holders, parenteral conscious sedation permit holders, enteral conscious sedation permit holders, dental hygienists, and radiology permit holders. Disciplinary information also is provided for each licensee category. The user may search for disciplinary actions by selecting a calendar year on the pull-down menu or by entering the license number and/or name of the licensee. Full PDFs of the Board's orders can be viewed for each licensee disciplined by the Board. The default search parameter is "Current Licensees Only"; however, if the user wishes to ascertain information concerning individuals who no longer have a license or permit, the parameter for "Current Licensees Only" should be de-selected prior to executing a search. This search capability is useful for dentists, dental hygienists, and radiology permit holders seeking dental employment, consumers who need to access dentists either in a particular locale or by specialty and/or ability to administer anesthesia, and dentists seeking to hire currently licensed dental hygienists and radiology permit holders. Biennial renewal occurs September 1 through October 31 of each year, with dentists renewing on a biennial basis in odd-numbered years and dental hygienists and radiology permit holders renewing on a biennial basis in even-numbered years. All Mississippi licenses and permits expire as of October 31 of each biennial period, and expiration dates are provided for each licensee. Everyone is encouraged to utilize all search capabilities of the Board's databases.
