A Dentist Professional License allows an individual to render services to restore and maintain dental health by diagnosing, treating, operating on, or prescribing medication for any condition of the teeth, gums, jaws, and other areas of the head and neck that involve the mouth.
A limited permit allows a graduate of a dental college that has satisfied the education requirements but not the experience requirement for licensure in New York State to practice under the supervision of a New York State licensed dentist.
