NDEB administers first National Dental Specialty Examination

October 1, 2020

On September 23 & 24, the NDEB successfully administered its first National Dental Specialty Examination (NDSE). 

In 2020, the NDEB assumed responsibility for administering the NDSE the credentialing examination for individuals wanting to pursue registration as a dental specialist in Canada. Since that time, the NDEB has been working closely with the RCDC to ensure a smooth transition and positive exam experience for examinees. 

The administration of the 2020 NDSE was a significant event for the NDEB as it wraps up months of examination develop for 11 different examinations. 

The administration of the 2020 NDSE was not without its challenges. Originally scheduled to be administered in June 2020 in Ottawa, ON, the NDSE was postponed due to the pandemic and rescheduled for September using multiple locations to minimize international and cross provincial travel.
