Fraud Alert Notice from Dental Board of California

Thursday, Mar 14, 2024

The Dental Board of California (Board) has learned of a recent scam aimed at Board licensees. Licensees receive an email asking them to click on a link to an encrypted message. The subject line of the email may say it is regarding your license or an investigation from the Board.


The fake emails may appear to come from the Board and may use fake Board letterhead to add authenticity to the scam. If you receive an email claiming to be from the Board or a Board employee, or asking you to click on a link, please consider the following:


• Avoid suspicious links. Hover over links to see the actual URL. If it looks suspicious or doesn’t match the claimed sender, don’t click.

• Be skeptical and approach unsolicited emails with caution.

• Treat email attachments with caution.

• Beware of urgency.

• Verify that the email address is sent from a Board email with a Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) email address. For example, most DCA emails end with @dca.ca.gov.

• Contact the Board at dentalboard@dca.ca.gov.

• Read the Board’s fraud alert for more tips and for directions on contacting the Board to inquire if you are the subject of an official investigation.
