Are You Interested in Becoming a BOD Member?

Feb 9, 2024 by Casey Stoutamire
Did you know there currently are two open positions on the Florida Board of Dentistry (BOD)? A dentist position and a consumer position are both vacant.

The BOD is responsible for licensure, monitoring and ensuring the safe practice of dentists and dental hygienists in their service to the people of the state. The BOD consists of 11 members appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Senate. Seven members must be licensed dentists actively engaged in clinical practice; two members must be actively practicing dental hygienists; and two members must be consumers employed in a field or occupation that is not related to the dental profession. The BOD meets four times a year at various locations around the state and the various committees and councils meet via conference call in between those meetings.

If you’re interested in becoming a board member, contains material that provides insight into the duties and responsibilities of the role.
