    Each state has its own rules/laws governing reciprocity. Texas will allow most practitioners to gain a license to practice if they have practiced dentistry in the immediate past 5 yrs (you must take and pass the Texas Jurisprudence Exam), other states have different laws governing the requirements for reciprocity. Some states have their own licensure exam for that specific state and in order to gain a license in that state everyone must take and pass the exam. Many of the states with strict restrictions on reciprocity do so to deter practitioners from enter the state to practice that were not educated in that state. You need to contact the state in which you are interested in order to find out that states requirements for licensure by credentials.
