Oklahoma

Oklahoma is a Title Protection State. The law states, “A person may not use the title or represent or imply that he or she has the title of licensed dietitian or provisional licensed dietitian or use the letters LD or PLD and may not use any facsimile of those titles in any manner to indicate or imply that the person is a licensed dietitian or provisional licensed dietitian, unless that person holds an appropriate license.” The law further states: “A person shall not use the title or represent or imply that he has the title of Registered Dietitian or the letters RD and shall not use any facsimile of the title in any manner to indicate or imply that the person is registered as a Registered Dietitian by the Commission on Dietetic Registration unless the person is registered as a Registered Dietitian by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.”

EXEMPTIONS: 

There are penalties for using the protected titles in Oklahoma, however, no other restrictions prevent holistic nutrition professionals from working within their scope of practice.
