Dental Insights

Last week, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Dentistry (BORID) sent an email to all dentists who renewed their licenses from January 1 – January 28, 2018, with additional attestation steps they needed to take to comply with state regulations. If you fall into this category but did not receive the email, the MDS Dental Practice Committee recommends that you check your junk mail folder to see if it inadvertently ended up there. This has happened to several members!

If you renewed your dental license between January 1 and January 28, 2018, you MUST respond to BORID with corrective action by March 31, 2018. Don't delay! Please note that failure to submit the attestation to BORID by the close of business on March 31 may result in BORID initiating action to rescind the renewal of your license based on failure to meet statutory requirements.
