The Idaho Board of Dentistry has authorized the issuance of a temporary license for dentist and dental hygienist licensure applicants who have met all other qualifications for licensure by examination but to complete a clinical board examination as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Board is authorized under Idaho Code 54-920 (6)(c), (7)(c) to issue a license with special status. Issuance of a license under this authority and as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic will have an effective period of six (6) months and will require the licensee to be indirectly supervised by an Idaho licensed dentist. The special status license becomes void once the person passes a clinical exam as required by the Idaho Board of Dentistry or is no longer eligible to take a clinical exam (due to failures), or after six months. If the applicant is unable to find a clinical exam being offered within the six-month period, the board may extend the special status license for an additional six months on a case-by-case basis.
