Has it been more than 5 years since you graduated?

If you graduated from an accredited dental specialty program more than five years (60 months) ago, you must download the Special Consideration Application Form. This form outlines the requirements for Special Consideration Applications. Individuals intending to participate in the 2020 NDSE are advised to submit their special consideration application as soon as possible. This will allow sufficient time for the NDEB to confirm eligibility for participation in the examination.

An application rejection appeal process is available to anyone whose application to be a candidate has been rejected.
