The Department may issue a restricted dental faculty license to a full-time faculty member employed at an approved New York State school of dentistry. A restricted dental faculty license authorizes the holder to practice dentistry, as defined in Article 133 of New York's Education Law, but such practice of dentistry must be limited to the school's facilities or the school's clinics, or facilities or clinics with relationships to the school confirmed by formal affiliation agreements. A restricted dental faculty license does not authorize the holder to engage in the private practice of dentistry at any other site.
To receive a restricted dental faculty license in New York State you must:
- be of good moral character;
- be at least 18 years of age;
- meet educational requirements; and
- meet experience requirements.
You must file an Application for Licensure (Form 1) and the other forms indicated, along with the appropriate fee, to the Office of the Professions at the address specified on each form. It is your responsibility to follow up with anyone you have asked to send us material.
The specific requirements for licensure are contained in Title 8, Article 133, section 6604-b of New York's Education Law.
You should also read the general licensing information applicable for all professions.
