The Oregon Practice of Dentistry Requirements Bill, also known as Measure 21, was on the November 3, 1914 ballot in Oregon as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated. The measure would have allowed people with “reputable” dental college degrees or people with out-of-state dental licenses to practice dentistry in Oregon upon filing their certification and having two citizens attest to their “good moral character” with the Secretary of State.
