Dental board email address requirement in effect

Under a new law, all applicants licensed by the Dental Board of California are required to submit their email address to the board effective July 1. The board plans to contact licensed dentists annually to confirm that their email addresses on file are correct.

Licensees who have not already done so, or whose email address has since changed, should submit their email address to the board by emailing and including their name, license number and email address using the subject line "Electronic Mail Address Requirement."

As the Department of Consumer Affairs' new licensing and enforcement system, known as BreEZe, gains some additional features, licensees will be able to quickly update their email addresses and more online. Email addresses will be kept confidentially by the board and will not be subject to public disclosure.
