Due to the public health emergency declared by Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham in Executive Order 2020-004, and to the cancellation of continuing education (CE) opportunities, the Board of Dental Health Care will implement the following procedures through the Regulation and Licensing Department, Boards and Commissions staff:

  • Boards and Commissions staff will process renewals without the proof of continuing CE credit needed for renewal during the pendency of the public health emergency instituted by Executive Order 2020-004.
  • Licensees submitting renewals without the sufficient CE credits, will be required to give notice to the board or commission through the notice procedures established by the Public Email Noticed on March 17, 2020.
  • If all other license renewal requirements are met, licenses will be renewed without proof of CE credits.
  • When the public health emergency is lifted, Boards and Commissions staff will send out a notice to licensees stating that the licensee has 6 months, depending upon the Board or Commission, to submit their proof of CE or be subject to discipline by the Board.
