Laws & Rules

The Legal Division represents the Board in the settlement and prosecution of complaints and assists the Board in drafting rules related to the practice of dentistry.

The Legal Division cannot provide legal or dental advice.

If you are a patient seeking referral to a dentist or advice on your treatment, you may look for a dentist in your area by doing a Licensee Search.  You may check whether a dentist has disciplinary action by doing a Licensee Search.

If you are a dental professional seeking advice on best practices or business-related matters, please contact your local dental society or your attorney.

If you have a question about an investigation or you'd like to file a complaint against a dental professional, please contact the Investigations Division at complaints@tsbde.texas.gov.

If you have a question about the rules or law, you may submit your question in writing to rulesquestions@tsbde.texas.gov.  Your question will be provided to the Dental Practice Committee of the Board for possible consideration at a future meeting.
