Diplomates are required to register with ABDPH annually. Typically, these Annual Registration Fees are due by December 31. As we just launched our brand new website, we are allowing extra time for Diplomates to pay their registration fees. Please log into your account and pay your Annual Registration Fee for 2023 by January 31, 2023.
The American Board of Dental Public Health (ABDPH) recognizes that continued competency in the specialty requires life-long learning to enrich past educational and training experiences. To foster this goal, the ABDPH has implemented a recertification program for its Diplomates. The objective of the recertification process is to assure that Diplomates maintain the highest level of competency to address public health problems. Under this program, all Diplomates who were certified in 2000 or after are certified for ten (10) years, and are required to re-certify every ten years thereafter. This program is voluntary for those individuals who were certified as Diplomates of the ABDPH before January 1, 2000, however, the ABDPH strongly urges all Diplomates to participate. The voluntary approach recognizes the previously established rights of certified Diplomates, but still promotes the attainment of continuing competency for all Diplomates in Dental Public Health.

Our website does allow you to log courses annually. This feature helps you to track your courses, however, it does not replace the Recertification Application.
