Request License Verification Letter

Letter of Good Standing, Certification and/or Verification

Effective October 1, 2018 the Ohio State Dental Board will no longer provide written letters of good standing, certification and/or verification of licensure letters for any licensee seeking licensure in another state.

All requests for letters of good standing, certification and/or verification will now be completed by the requestor via the online eLicense portal: https://elicense.ohio.gov/OH_HomePage.  This real-time, online verification will replace all printed letters of good standing, certification and/or verification of licensure letters. 

All State Dental Boards were notified of this change via email on 9/26/2018. Please direct any State Dental Board requesting a letter of good standing, certification and/or verification of licensure directly to this link.
