The Florida Board of Dentistry plays a leading role in the State’s ever-changing health care environment . This is accomplished through communications with the public, legislature, dental colleges, the dental community, and through taking active roles on national dental organizations.

The Board consists of eleven 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.
