This involves licensing and registering qualified practitioners, setting standards for issuance and renewal of licenses and registrations, enforcing Kentucky laws and regulations regarding the practice of dentistry, investigating complaints against license or registration holders, conducting disciplinary hearings, and answering questions regarding the Dental Practice Act.
The Kentucky Board of Dentistry is self-supporting and receives no general fund tax appropriation. It is funded through fees assessed for licensing its professionals.
