ATTENTION DENTAL LABS

The Board of Dentistry was required under the State Records Retention Law to purge and destroy all previous Lab Registration files from 2009 and earlier. Registration of laboratories was removed from the law in 2010 when the Kentucky Dental Practice Act was rewritten.

All laboratories must fill out a NEW registration form and you will be issued a NEW Registration Number.
