Search for a Licensee

Search for a Licensee


With the Board’s transition to the State of Ohio’s a new online elicensing system, license numbers now have six digits (rather than five) after the credential prefix.  For example, a dentist who had license number 30.12345 will now have license number 30.012345.  If you are searching for a licensee through the “verify a license search” on the elicensing website, you will need to enter all six digits that appear after the credential prefix.  You can continue to search by first and last name.  If you have any problems with the search, please call the Board office at 614-466-2580.
