OAR 818-015-0007
Specialty Advertising


A dentist may only advertise as a specialist in an area of dentistry which is recognized by the Board and in which the dentist is licensed or certified by the Board.


The Board recognizes the following specialties:




Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery;


Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology;


Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology;


Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics;


Pediatric Dentistry;






Dental Public Health;


Dental Anesthesiology.


A dentist whose license is not limited to the practice of a specialty under OAR 818-021-0017 (Application to Practice as a Specialist) may advertise that the dentist performs or limits practice to specialty services even if the dentist is not a specialist in the advertised area of practice so long as the dentist clearly discloses that the dentist is a general dentist or a specialist in a different specialty. For example, the following disclosures would be in compliance with this rule for dentists except those licensed pursuant to 818-021-0017 (Application to Practice as a Specialist): “Jane Doe, DDS, General Dentist, practice limited to pediatric dentistry.” “John Doe, DMD, Endodontist, practice includes prosthodontics.”
