Licenses expire on December 31st of the year of issue. A license renewal notice is mailed to each licensed dentist and dental hygienist at their last address of record approximately sixty (60) days prior to December 31st. The renewal application must be post-marked by December 31st to be considered without a late fee. When the renewal application is approved, the license is renewed for one (1) calendar year. The renewed licensee will will receive new pocket ID cards and a receipt for the renewal fee.
Please note all licenses must be renewed by December 31 of each year in order to continue to practice in the state. If your license is not renewed by December 31, YOU MAY NOT PRACTICE IN WYOMING.
It has come to our attention that there is conflicting fee information on the instruction page of the Hygiene renewal application.
Please note that the renewal fee for hygienists is $95.00.
The Wyoming Board of Dental Examiners will no longer be using the online system from previous years. Until a new renewal system is in place, licensees must submit paper renewal forms.
When you submit a paper renewal form, you must pay with a personal or business check, cashier's check, or money order. We do not accept credit or debit cards. If you hold a current sedation permit, you must renew both your Dental license AND your sedation permit.
Please Note: Pre-printed Renewal Applications for the 2017 renewal were mailed on 10/14/16.
