A Board Certified dentist must be recertified every five years. Certified dentists must accumulate 125 hours of continuing education in clinical science, basic science or regulatory matters related to dentistry over this five-year period. CE materials may be submitted by U.S.Mail to the ABGD office or by email.
Failure to meet recertification requirements will cause the Board Certified dentist’s name to be removed from the registration roster and forfeiture of the certificate.
A recertification fee of $75.00 is assessed to cover the expense of reviewing qualifications. Board Certified dentists will receive a reminder one-year prior to their required recertification.
