License/Certificate Renewal Process

In accordance with Section 40-15-170, on or about the 15th of October of each year, a renewal of license/certificate notification is mailed to each person licensed/registered by the Board. Licenses may be renewed online at Online Renewals or a renewal application may be downloaded and submitted by mail to the Board office.

  • If renewal/ registration is completed by December 31 of the renewal period, no late fees will be assessed.
  • If registration is completed on January 1 through January 31 during the renewal period, the late renewal fees double.

Dental licenses and certification expire starting March 2 of the renewal period and must be reinstated by the board in order to practice in SC. Dental licensees may not practice with a lapsed license or certification.
