Contributing to the oral health of Canadians by providing a fair, valid and reliable evaluation of competence for the certification of dentists.


Created by an Act of Parliament, the National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB) is dedicated to supporting the health of Canadians by maintaining the national standards for general dentistry in Canada.

The NDEB develops and administers innovative, internationally-recognized examinations and assessments that are valid and reliable. Each year approximately 1000 dentists from Canada and around the world are certified through the NDEB’s examination and assessment processes.
