Specialty Licensure Requirements


  • Every applicant for an Arkansas Specialty license must first be licensed as a general dentist.
  • Complete all portions of the Arkansas Specialty application and return it to this office along with a copy of your specialty certificate/diploma.  NOTE: If you would like to apply before graduation, please ask your department head to forward a letter to our Board office verifying your enrollment in the graduate program and your expected graduation date. A copy of your diploma should then be sent after graduation.
  • Include the $300 application fee ( check or money order) with your application. Arrangements for specialty testing will begin after your application has been accepted by our office. You will be notified regarding the status of your application and testing arrangements as they become known to the Board office.
