Continuing Education

Attention Washington Dentists and Dental Hygienists: The Secretary of Health has extended health profession license expiration dates for licenses up for renewal between April 1 and September 30, 2020. This extension will allow health professionals to focus on patient care and promote continued patient safety during the COVID-19 outbreak. Because renewal payment won’t be required until September 30, 2020, it will also reduce the economic burden on those providers not able to work during this emergency. For more information, please visit: https://www.doh.wa.gov/LicensesPermitsandCertificates/ProfessionsNewReneworUpdate.
