Controlled Substances Registration Information

On September 1, 2016 the controlled substances registration became part of the regular dental license renewal,  a small fee increase is included in the renewal fee to cover this registration.  Dentists will not receive a separate controlled substances registration certificate.  Prescribing dentists are still required to keep their DEA registration active, but other than that, there are no additional steps needed to continue prescribing.  Click here for more information about controlled substances registrations.
