Resources & Information


Did you know?

Licensees are required to report changes in certain information, such as practice address and phone number or current area of practice, to the Board within 60 days. Many licensees wait to report this information during their annual renewal.

However, this can result in incomplete or inaccurate information appearing on the Board’s public website. In some situations, it may mean that the Board does not have up-to-date contact information for licensees who select their practice address as their mailing address.

Clip and save this guide to reporting required information to the Board to make sure you are in compliance.
