Welcome to the official website for the Kansas Dental Board.  The Kansas Dental Board is the licensing and regulatory office for dentists and dental hygienists in the State of Kansas.

***The Kansas Dental Board is not authorized, statutorily or otherwise, to close dental offices or suspend certain dental procedures in Kansas due to COVID-19.  These decisions may only be ordered through the exercise of chief executive or emergency powers, including, but not limited to, those powers held by the President of the United States or Governor.  Each licensee should remain informed of current developments.***  

By order of Governor Kelly, the state building where the Kansas Dental Board office is located will not be open to the general public from Monday, April 6, 2020, through Sunday, April 19, 2020.  This order can be modified with or without future notice.  During this time, limited telephonic voicemails will be accepted, prioritized, and then returned in the order of priority as determined by Board staff.  E-mail inquires are strongly encouraged and preferred.  All e-mail inquiries must be directed to the Board’s general e-mail box:  dental.info@ks.gov

Please do not send multiple e-mails or forward your previously submitted e-mail from several different e-mail addresses because this consumes limited staff time to sort and prioritize based on need.  Please understand that, due to the large number of inquiries, a response time cannot be guaranteed.  We ask that you continue to remain patient, follow the KDHE’s current guidelines, exercise your professional judgment, and monitor the Board’s website for any potential changes.  Thank you.
