Dental Licensure by State Map
The Dental Licensure Map is provided by the ADA. The ADA attempts to keep the Dental Licensure Map information current based on information from state dental boards, clinical testing agencies and state dental associations. Individuals seeking dental licensure are strongly urged to use the Dental Licensure Map as well as consult with the respective state board of dentistry for additional information.
Select or hover over a state on the Dental Licensure Map to see which exams or credentials are accepted. You can also select a state and download a PDF that contains information about licensure for dentists. This includes both licensure by examination and licensure by credentials.
Definition of the terms such as CRDTS, CITA, CIF exams, PGY1, OSCE, and other abbreviations used on the Map can be found on the American Dental Association's Licensure Pathways website page.
