Regulation and Application
Effective June 18, 2014, all dental laboratories doing business in Kentucky are required to register with the Kentucky Board of Dentistry. The required registration fee is $150 for each laboratory.
Dental Laboratories are governed by

Effective June 18, 2014, all Kentucky dentists shall only use the services of a commercial dental laboratory that is registered with the Kentucky Board of Dentistry. All Kentucky dentists are required to include the registration number of the dental laboratory on the dentist's work order.
If you are a Kentucky dentist and the dental lab you wish to use is not on the list above, please contact the lab and request that they register with the Board.

It’s easy to register your laboratory online and pay with your choice of ACH Debit (Electronic Check), Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover.
Prior Lab Registration Files
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 the new registration form and you will be issued a new Registration Number.
