Who CANNOT Use Online License Renewal?

There are some cases where individuals are not eligible to use the online license renewal process. Do NOT proceed online if you are:

  • Changing your retired or disabled license to an active license status
  • Changing from active to retired or disabled status
  • Not fulfilling required amount of continuing education hours
  • Required to supply documentation, for example, active military, discipline in another state, malpractice settlement, criminal conviction

Alert to Active Military

You may renew online. However, doing so will require you to meet requirements and pay all license renewal fees. Your fees and your CE requirements may be waived by submitting a paper application along with your current military orders.

If you have questions, please contact the Kansas Dental Board.

Getting Started

If none of the preceding cases apply, you may begin the on-line renewal process.
