License Renewal Time Quickly Approaching

The Missouri Dental Board reminds licensees that renewal time is fast approaching. All active dental, dental specialist and dental hygiene licenses will expire Nov. 30, 2014. The Board will be mailing renewal reminder cards to licensees in early September. There is a $100 late fee for license renewals after the Nov. 30 expiration date. The Board is lowering the license renewal fee to $180 for dentists and dental specialists and $60 for dental hygienists. Dentists and dental specialists are required to obtain 50 CE hours (between the dates of Dec. 1, 2012 and Nov. 30, 2014) of Board-approved CE in order to renew their licenses. A dentist can carry over up to 25 extra CE hours from the previous CE period if they can demonstrate that those hours were in addition to the 50 hours required for the previous renewal.

ATSU Faculty Town Hall Meetings, Sept. 16 & Nov. 4, Seeking St. Louis Faculty

A.T. Still University's Missouri School of Dentistry and Oral Health (ATSU-MOSDOH), based in Kirksville Mo., will be opening its St. Louis-based Dental Education and Oral Health Clinic in partnership with Grace Hill Health Centers in late spring 2015. At the clinic, third- and fourth-year dental students will deliver care to a full spectrum of patients including children, adults, geriatric, disabled, homeless and the uninsured. ATSU-MOSDOH Dean Christopher G. Halliday, DDS, MPH, invites you to attend one of two informational meetings to discuss potential opportunities for faculty involvement with the school's St. Louis-based clinic. Dr. Halliday will conduct a presentation on both Sept. 16, 2014 or Nov. 4, 2014, at 7pm each evening, at the Double Tree Hotel in Chesterfield. ATSU-MOSDOH is focused on educating and graduating caring, compassionate, technologically adept dentists who will become community and educational leaders, serving those in need. Therefore, the University also is seeking faculty members who exemplify these same qualities.
